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.
1. If your final file is for on-screen viewing (for example, on a web page or in an e-mail message), select 96 dpi for your resolution.
Image type Recommended Image Type Scanning Resolution for printing Photograph Color Photo 300 dpi Small photograph to be enlarged Color Photo 300 dpi to 2400 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 2400 dpi 35 mm film or slide TPU for neg. film 300 to 2400 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.
