Get a quick run-down of resolution meanings and settings in this video. Here’s what you need to know. Basically, for print, how big do you want to show your final product? It should be 300ppi at that size. Play it safe by overshooting the resolution a bit. Scanning at hi-res means large files sizes, but it also means abundant cropping options and greater large-size printing potential.
- Now, the whole topic of resolution settings for scans,…it can get really wordy…and we don't have time for wordy here.…So, here is my best effort…at boiling down this potentially overwhelming topic…into something that's, I don't know,…sufficiently complete and also about as streamlined…as I can make it.…Okay, first thing that you gotta know is…that an image's resolution is…how many pixels it packs per inch.…The more pixels, the greater the detail in the image…and the larger it can be displayed,…either on screen or in print.…
Next thing you gotta know…is that once you assign a resolution to an image…and you make a scan,…you can't add more resolution later on.…You can only take it away.…Okay, you follow me so far?…Good.…So, what is the right resolution for a good looking image?…Well, as some of you know, that number differs depending…on whether the destination is for screen or for print.…Now 72 PPI, which stands for pixels per inch,…that's the appropriate resolution for on screen.…
