I assume you mean when you scan them at 27xx and then downsize them to
72dpi, that comes out far better than scanning them AT 72dpi? That's easy,
if that's the case. The PS software does a better job at decimation than
your scanner does!
Not all scanners are bad at decimating though, mine happens to do a better
job than PS does...but it's a pretty high end scanner, and made specifically
TO output at variable resolutions, though it can only scan at
5080/2540/1200... It has three built-in DSP processors (one Digital Signal
Processor per channel) that take care of decimating the data to give
outstanding reduced resolution scans.
