There are countless examples of scanned images on a.net with incredible quality, and so sharp you could cut yourself watching them. So the question I keep asking myself is; Why can't I do that? Is it because...
A) I Don't have that kind of skill/knowledge
B) Because my scanner simply isn't good enough to do the job?
Is there anyone out there who have some hints of how to get the most out of a print when scanning it onto the PC? The scanner I'm operating on is an AGFA Dualscan T1200, incase anyone happen to have the same. I use Corel Photopaint during the scanning.
It's not that the result is absolute rubbish, it's just that I believe the pics can look better. So, can anyone offer some advice?

To scan negatives (or slides), you need a film scanner, like the one pictured below. The best ones are made by Nikon, Canon and Minolta, and are about the size of a shoebox. Cost depends on quality, but range from $400 to $1600.
