Based on the information I have gained from this list, I will scan it at Max
(2700) and then bring it to Print dpi level. The reason is that I archive at
maximum and so the file for print has to be reduced.
If I am scanning for someone else, I scvan for the use they will have. E.g. A
Power Point presentation gets jpg at 1350 then reduced to 150 at 5 in. x 5 in.,
for web I will do a jpg at 1350 or 675 and then reduce it to 72 in PS after
tweaking and cleaning. Tweaking for both consists of getting rid of dust. etc.
that the clean function may have missed and maybe cropping and rotating if
