Hi Erin,

I am a relative novice here, but sometimes keeping things simplistic can help

I think a little more information would be helpful:

What do you want to do with the output?  How big a print do you want to be
able to make ( as you know this may be limited by your printer as well as
your scanner)?  Is this for 'high quality but amateur' output or 'pro' output
for publication etc.

What kind of camera are you shooting with?  A $1500 scanner may not make
sense linked with a $50 lens.

What kind of printer do you have or are you going to get?

What is your budget?

Are you going to be scanning large numbers of slides or small numbers?


<< I'm just starting my research into buying a scanner, and I'd like to get
 some advice from people who've been using them for a while. I've been
 shooting color slides and want to be able to make prints myself, as well as
 use Photoshop to edit them. What do I need to know about the Photoshop
 software I already have, and about the printer I already have, to be sure I
 buy a compatible scanner? What specs should I not skimp on, when deciding
 between scanners? >>
