Doing the latter is generally preferable IMO, tho' it depends on whether PS
interpolation routines are superior or worse than those in scanner s/w.
Remember the scanner has a fixed, native pixel pitch and density, so can
only vary it by dropping n scan lines or post-acquire processing.

Best to do your own tests and see which looks better, really.
