Android Question Bitmaps less bulky for printing purposes ?

I am still struggling with printing. PDF printing creates random errors, so I am exploring bitmap printing.

But to get to 300 dpi requires a picture 2550x3300 for a letter size printing. As a result, the resulting default bitmap format chokes the printer.

Would it be possible to use a less memory hungry format, as described here:
https://developer.android.com/reference/android/graphics/Bitmap.Config

It would seem RGB_565 could be the solution.
