There are lots of places that do scanning. I think most major copier places have film scanners these days. You'll get a CD (99% empty) with an image file on it. Ask for TIFF format if possible, at whatever the scanner's natural resolution is (e.g., 4000ppi). If you have a painting, you need to photograph it. If you photograph it on film, you'll of course have to get that scanned, too. If you want to photograph the image yourself, it's best to use a tripod, and generally best to illuminate the painting from both sides, rather than using a flash on the camera (which would produce glare off the shiny paint). The trouble you need to go to depends upon the quality you need. -- Ciao, Paul D.
