We have in the past encountered images too large for us to scan. We used our digital camera to produce a high res tiff, it compared very favorably to multiple scans that were stitched together. Lighting a painting with texture takes a little work. We would use two lights at something like 45 degrees to the subject hung on the wall. It is important that the light sources are balanced for color temp and brightness, studio flash units with UV corrected tubes are my preference. Use the largest reflectors you can on the heads to ensure even illumination.

Anyone who has done an ad as a freelancer - I could use your help! My client may use a royalty-free photo in which case would come to me already scanned by the stock house (I assume.) But now he is thinking of using an illustrator... If the illustrator does an acrylic on canvas - how in the world do you scan that?? I can take it to a place - but what do I ask for? i assume it is not a drum scan anymore..? Sorry for my ignorance. I am an art director and never had to act like a print producer before now... FYI - the scan has to work in an 8.5 x 11 print ad - but also blown up to a 9ft x 9ft trade show banner... I am on a Mac if that matters. Please help!!
