I reprinted an image from the CMYK digital file used by a newpaper the other day, and found details in the inkjet print that the 100 lpi original missed entirely. I'd say you would need to get well above 200 lpi to match the detail in the stochastic dithering in any 1440 dpi Epson. I found it interesting that the CMYK press conversion applied at the scanner for the newspaper was so limiting in the photo above that I could barely improve on the original newsprint version color-wise; any significant attempt to tweak the curves created posterization or dark colors that were out of balance. If I had the original photo they had scanned I could have easily done a better job making my own RGB scan for Epson output. So I ended up with slightly brighter colors, a bit denser black, and a bit more open shadows, but no drastic improvements, as the seperation was in the colorspace of the press, and just didn't contain significant info for improvement. I'm spoiled by RGB process... C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
