I've been doing some tests: scanning 6x6 negatives to print out at approx. 11.5x15(ins) on Super B paper on an Epson 1200 scanning (on an Epson expression 800) at the recommended 300 dpi creates something in the order of a 60 mg file which takes forever to print. I have a slide/neg scanner (HP photosmart) which when I dial in the size of the output always defaults to a 150dpi file. Using that I have been able to produce these full size super b prints from 35 mm negs & slides. Using that experience I scanned a 6x6 neg. on the Epson at 300 and at 240 and 150 and printed all from PS. All look the same to me. So why does everybody in the know recommend these HUGE files the largest of which the 1200 estimated would take 120 minutes to print! The photographs are of gardens and portraits. In the portraits I have sent some time looking at the skin tones especially of children but, again at all resolutions they all look as good as a photograph! Is it a sign my eye sight is failing, or am I missing out on something here? John Bradbury - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
