Pam: I use a drum scanner that scans a 35mm image at 3000 dpi optical. This gives a file that can then be scaled up to the size I want to print. I then set the dpi, for out put, to around 200 dpi. This gives me a 30-40 meg file. Then print using the Epson 3000 set at 1400 dpi. This gives images that are as good as any photo when both are viewed together at the same distance. If you look at the two with a loupe you can tell the difference between a photo and a print off the 3000, but hanging on the wall you cannot. There are others on this list who have posted all kinds of complicated formulas for scanning for the best output, but this method works for me so I stick with it. I have never had any prints rejected because of poor quality. Jim Davis mailto:email@example.comPam Niedermayer wrote: > > Jim, what do you do to make this possible? Very high res > scanner?
