  • Millrace lab has a film scanner
    Most computer labs have a flatbed scanner
    Drum scanners are high resolution commercial options
  • dpi vs. ppi - dots per inch are for print. pixels per inch are for screen
    design for 800x600 pixel screen resolution
  • This is a trick question. They are the same screen resolution but different print resolutions.

  • Match reproduction technique to artwork and decide what will work best for each image

    Always scan in RGB. Always print in RGB. Your inkjet printer driver does not process CMYK or Greyscale mode as efficiently.

    Size up your image for printing in a resolution that multiplies easily up to the print resolution (file resolution 240ppi for a print resolution of 1440 DPI).
    Good file resolutions: 180, 200,240, 300 and 360ppi max.

    Orientate your print to portrait format before going to print. The fewer tasks you ask the print driver to perform, the faster your print will be

    Print test prints
