    Hello All,

    I have some slides I want to scan, then print out. I am in the
    process of buying a Canon i9900 printer which has a print resolution
    of 4800 x 2400 dpi.

    So at what DPI setting should I scan the slides? I am willing to
    spend the disk space for higher resolution scanning, but see no need
    to exceed my printer's capacity.

    Also any general hints on scanning slides would be appreciated.
