Scanning Specifications

All scans are saved to a CD or DVD and returned to you along with your plates.

• Half Plate negatives are provided in two resolutions, automatically. One file at 2400 ppi and another at 1200 ppi. This 2400 ppi version results in an extremely high resolution file that allows you to selectively crop the images while still maintaining high resolution. Scanning at higher than 2400 will not yield more detail; it will only increase the file size. The resolution of the grain in the emulsion has been exceeded already by the 2400 ppi scan.
The 1200 ppi scans will be in a separate folder on your disc. Even these scans will be sufficient to print the whole image - even to poster sizes.
