TIFF files.

oops, yeah.  The dpi figure in the above should b e 618.  A scan from
a slide I just did read:

2396x3694, 2720 dpi, 0.81x1.36", 19.9MB

Better, eh?  :-)

No, it doesn't, it's changed.  Interesting, I had never done that -
re-looked at an image on disk with the scanning software.  I just
called up an unaltered TIFF.   Why is that?  Would it help if I cited
the changes?  Looks like I could learn something from this.  I better
send one through paying close attention to all the settings.
