Rafe: Where I found an advantage to the higher res original files is when I am upsizing. If I am printing an 11x17 at 200 dpi the image is fine. If I upsize to a 30 x40 or larger I normally like to start with a 300 dpi or higher res. scan. This way I can still print at 175 or 200 and not choke the printer and loose too much detail.
