Somewhat following up on this Resolution and Banding topic, I have a more general question on getting the maximum print quality from your friend neighborhood Epson. So far, I've gotten advice that if you print over 720ppi then you should downsample to 720ppi to print, with the possibility that it **might** give you better results. (hey, it's easy, so why not live with that possibility.) But what about some more general things that I've heard people refer to, but am not quite sure how they might help / hinder? In other words, what's the general process that people usually go through to get from a scanned image to a printed image? Say I get a 4000ppi negative scan, and want to print a 5x7 from it. This gives me roughly 800ppi, so I should scale it down to 720ppi. But what about other things that might increase the quality of the print? Should I sharpen / blur the image? Should I smart blur to get a more continuous tone? !john -- =================================== support the arts! www.smadness.com - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
