Re: COMP:Scanning question

My scanner has a mind of its own and scans at 150 dpi. I edit the image by
first cropping, then changing the resolution to 72 and finally compressing
with jpeg. I use 5 x 7 prints for my commercial photo albums. This usually
reduces the size of the emailed file to 10 to 20 kb from an initial scan of
400+ kb.  If you are using a smaller photo size then don't reduce the
resolution as much. The jpeg compression is where you gain the biggest
reduction of file size. The reduction in resolution also helps significantly
as file size is area dependent.

Hope this helps.  If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me
