What scanning resolution should I use to get the best results when I print the scanned image?
When you use the scanner buttons and EPSON Smart Panel™, the software selects the best settings automatically. Here are some recommended settings for different types of scans.
|Image type||Recommended Image Type||Scanning Resolution for printing|
|Photograph||Color Photo||300 dpi|
|Small photograph to be enlarged||Color Photo||300 dpi to 3200 dpi|
|Magazine||Color Photo||300 dpi|
|Newspaper (text only)||Text (Background Removal)||400 dpi|
|Text for OCR||Text (Background Removal)||400 dpi|
|Text with images||Color Document||400 dpi|
|Line art||Line art||300 to 3200 dpi|
|35 mm film or slide||TPU for neg. film||300 to 3200 dpi|
2. If you are enlarging your image, you must manually increase the resolution (dpi) proportionally to maintain the resolution of your original.
Note: If you use the scan to P.I.M. feature, make sure you print with the P.I.M. enabled program that came with your P.I.M. enabled printer.
