I wonder about the "crummy" scanner...5 years ago the same scanning capabilities cost at least 5 times as much...and professional work has been and is being done with less. So, my question to you is about the "how" of your scanning...are you just slapping the pics down and letting the scanner do it all on "automatic", or are you doing a preview, analyzing the image and selecting your own white and black points and so on, and resolution appropriate for the usage? Like I said, I don't know your techniques, your scanner, or your skills...but almost any current or even ancient scanner made by Umax should be able to give good results from 8x10 prints, or smaller. (I have a maybe 10 year old Umax OEM 300 ppi scanner that has made many published scans). on 04/24/2002 06:57 AM, Gene Merritt at email@example.com wrote: > Hi > > I'm in a quandry about flatbed acanners.
