[filmscanners] Re: dpi - formerly PS sharpening

Anthony, your comments concerning dpi raised a few questions for me.  I
understand why leaving the dpi at the scanner resolution can slightly deter
theft from those who wouldn't know how to change the size of the image.  By
leaving the dpi at 2700 or 4000, is the file size larger than it would be at
72dpi?  If so, I can see a distinct advantage to reducing the dpi to 72.
Also, by leaving the dpi at 2700 or 4000 are you creating a higher quality
graphic file? If so, than that will give the final user the ability to
create better reproductions.  Wouldn't that overcome the theft advantage of
leaving the image at 2700 or 4000 dpi.

Just for clarification, this is not an attack.  I simply don't know the
answers to the questions and hope to gain a greater understanding of dpi
through this dialogue.
