[QUOTE=Sossity;2531008]1). I have quite a collection of concert ticket stubs, concert fliers & post cards. What resolution should I scan these at? what color space? sRGB or Adobe RGB? & what bit depth? 24 or 48?
I will be using them in slide shows on DVDs to watch on a computer & TV, & possibly print as well.[/QUOTE]
Besides the software it’s also the hardware that makes the differences as well so you should also invest in a good high resolution scanner of known brand name.
[QUOTE=Sossity;2531008]2). I am also in the process of scanning Album art, the leaflets/covers that come in the jewel cases of my commercial audio CD’s. What resolution? sRGB or Adobe RGB? & 24 or 48 bit depth?
I may print these as well.[/QUOTE]
This is something one shouldn’t announce as those cover/leaflets are copyright and trademark protected by their respectful companies so if you plan on producing them and marketing them you will need those companies permission and probably pay them royalties for using and printing them.
[QUOTE=Sossity;2531008]I have 2 scanners; one a separate one, an Epson perfection 4490 photo & a built in scanner in my HP all in one inkjet printer. would the HP one work? or do I need the Epson?
I guess it comes down to what the companies use when the make CD album art & ticket stubs.
These projects of scanning will be quite an undertaking, so It would be nice to get it right to start, I dont want to go back again. Thanks for any help.[/QUOTE]
I would still go with a dedicate scanner that is made solely for high resolution scanning. MIO units are con and pros and those leave out or sacrifices quality or performances to be a all in one unit.
