This depends on the resolution of the scan, the size of the original vs. the size of the print-out, and any cropping and blowing up you might be doing. Many times, we scan things for electronic viewing and 72dpi tends to work well if we're not viewing it at a much larger size than the original. For printing, you're probably going to need somewhere in the 300-600dpi range. Now, if your enlarging the picture, you might need even higher resolution when you scan so the same number of dots (the "d" in dpi) don't have to cover a larger number of inches (the "i" in dpi). Finally, I mentioned cropping, because if you crop the picture and then print at what was the original size, that is just like enlarging that portion of the picture. --David --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
