Greetings to my Orchid friends. A while back there was a thread that
addressed resolution for electronic images. One comment was that 300
dpi was standard for publishing purposes [thanks Susan] and the other
comment was that 300dpi would be fine for images printed aprox 5x7.
My question - I will be archiving my slide history into electronic
format. What resolution would allow me to produce a quality image at
8x10? Scanning at the higher resolution is more expensive and of
course the files will be larger. I realize I can always go down in
resolution for specific applications [a copy reduced to 72 for web].
Of course I can always have a few done and test the results but I am
hoping that someone has already crossed this bridge. I have been
talking to the photo people and basically the message is “we can do
whatever you want”. The point is I don’t have enough experience to
know what I want.
Thanks in advance
