    Default Best / min DPI for you full screen resalution

    Quick question.

    What DPI would you advise me to scan my photos in at?
    I dont want it to look to grainey or the final quality to be poor but on the other hand I dont want them to take ages to scan or open in photoshop unnecessarily

    I think any think over 300 is suficient but I cant remember!

    Please help me with this if you know, I dont want to have to re scan the whole lot again!

    Many thanks
    Karl

    For on-screen show, 72 dpi is the minimum. 150 dpi or even 300 should look ok.

    For inclusion in video I don't think you actually need more then 72dpi tbh but if you scan at 300dpi then yhou have the options to....

    a) Print a hard copy photo; and
    b) Be able to zoom and pan the photo within your video compositions.

    If you find scanning at 300 dpi and opening in Photoshop too long then I suspect you are ready for an upgrade on your h/w.
