  • Scanning Prints

    I'm wondering if anyone's got any tips about scanning from prints. I've tried every mode my dinky scanner has, and this is the best I've come up with, for a friend that needs some of my pics of Shuttle Columbia.



    Yeah...fantastic I know. Is this improvable at all? Appreciate any input.

    PS: Respectfully request that no one under the age of 20 reply to this post. While many of you clearly have profoundly more photography knowledge than me, I haven't seen too many of you show that you can behave maturely (IE, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything)..You know...basic stuff like that.

    Thanks.

    Scan at 600dpi or even more, then do the usual editing and resizing stuff...

      There is a space shuttle in that picture? :P

      Just kidding.....

      Fence is a major distraction, that and the whole picture seems soft.

        Relax Jeff, he's not uploading it. He wants to give it to a friend.

          Thanks. The scanner I'm using is from the jurassic age, but I'll see what I can squeeze outta it. Also gonna see if I can zoom in without it looking too awful.

            Go the highest DPI possible, and try not to crop too much. The more you crop the more it will get ugly.
            What you needed was a longer lens when you shot the photo
