    for wallpaper, 72dpi is okay. for a printout, pro printers usually go with
    300 dpi.

    Fairly sound advice from David, but even the experts disagree. We should say
    something like the Environmental Protection Agency makes the auto makers
    say: "your mileage may vary."

    Check out
    [url]http://www.scantips.com[/url] for some great tips from a guy named Wayne Fulton
    who has obviously spent eons working with scanners.

    He says "72 dpi" is bogus:

    and at
    [url]http://www.scantips.com/basics02.html[/url]
    goes through a lot of basic math on scanner settings and file size.

    If you're using it as wallpaper on your computer, then simply scan it
    at the resolution of your display:

    1024 x 768
    or
    1280 x 1024

    That way you'll be sure that the entire image fits on the monitor.

    The other poster's suggestion of 72 dpi makes a bit of sense, however,
    as that's approximately the resolution of your monitor, but if you
    scan at 72 dpi, then you'd need to start with an image that's over 17
    inches to get the 1280 dimentions above. Therefore you need scan at a
    higher resolution and then resize the image for your monitor
    resolution when done.

    Default scanning

    Hi

    I have a problem with scanning a positive with a Lexmark X73. I took a photo
    from inside a friends home unit that fronts the Thames. It was taken
    early-mid morning and sunny. (Yep! It was definitely London) It is crisp and
    is a great shot but dark in the foreground and light beyond the glass door
    to infinity. I can't get any resolution at all. Others scanned OK. Maybe the
    scanner?

    Thanks
