Hello,

im looking for a bit of advice, i have a ton of prints from comicons, especially London.

What im wondering is, if i buy a scanner and scan and save the image on my PC will it print in good quality later?

Does anybody scan there photos?

Any advice is great.

 

thanks you

Set to scan at a high resolution and they should be fine.

I do the same, although I found this year that even my own scans of the images come out much lighter than the digital versions available later on (unless you start doing some photoshop manipulation to get the right balance).

My scanned version (even set to 300dpi):

Digital version from SM:

Can really see a difference.

How did you get a digital version from showmasters with the signature on it?

 

thanks

She signed my autograph book separately and I added it afterwards in photoshop using the witchcraft and pixie dust setting...:P

Big Thing for the scanned printed image or the digital Jpeg. They may look close at smaller sizes.

But If they used a high quality high megapixel camera you can crop closer to faces for instance and lose no detail, or do massive prints.

You cannot do that with a scanned print :-)

 

Always good to remember :-) but for say an A4 print then scanning the images from the con may well do mist people.
