I think one needs to determine what the meaning of sharpening is. When printers say sharpening on the plate, that usually means creating contrast or applying plate curves upon exposure. I am thinking that when prepress or photoshop artists speak of sharpening, it is generally in reference to USM on a file, which is a totally different animal. What sharpening is being referenced to in this case? Best, KLathan > > You have been provided with several suggestions on scanning.
