    But a slide is only an inch or so across. 300dpi gives you perhaps a
    megapixel. Certainly not as much as 2... what do you call *low*

    hmm... Todhunter. You do realise the government is about to ban you?

    Yes, but A3 is a paper size, and it's much larger than an inch or so.
    That's what the 300dpi was referring to, print size, not samples of
    the source.

    A3 is about 11.7" x 15.5", so to print at 300ppi the image would have
    to come off the slide at about 3300 ppi. But they aren't even claiming
    that, they claim you can print it at 300dpi which is different from

    Makes more sense that way I admit. If Chris comes back, how many pixels
    *do* you mean?

  5. Hi Andy,

    The sizes we quote refer to the TIFF or JPEG that we supply back to
    the customer. We actually scan at up to 4000ppi, but a 35mm image at
    4000ppi is still a 35m image. For convenience, we resize the images
    for those who do not have graphics software such as Photoshop.

    I wan't aware I was about to be banned! Would that be the Todhunter
    corporation in the States?
