Hello, all..

 

I need some advice on scanning slides.  I have a good scanner (EPSON V600) and Lightroom to make any exposure. etc. changes that are necessary.  My question is:  what size do I need to make the scans resolve to?  I tried one pass with A4 size, but they got rejected as they were "soft" and had "noise".  Any insights and/or suggestions would be most welcome.  Thanks!

Are you scanning 35mm, medium or large format?  If they are 35mm, it will be very hard to pass QC.

Generally speaking, scan them at highest resolution (native not interpolated) and reduce to a size you want.

Was it 4000 dpi for 35mm slides?

I actually re did the scans; 1 at 2400 DPI at original size, and 1 each at 600 DPI at 4x6 and 5x7.   They all passed QC, so that's what I will do going forward.
