I know I'm not the first and won't be the last but I can't figure out what the **** I'm doing wrong scanning my photo's in.
Every one I've ever sent in as been rejected and before I get complaints about moaning, YES it is obviously something I'm not doing right.
My camera is a Nikon 801 with a good selection of Sigma lenses (nothing wrong there then) I use Kodacolour Gold Royale film (not everyones choice but we are all different) I've a Canon N650U scanner and an ADSL connection (so far so good) + probably the most important thing of all I'm an ex semi pro photographer, but when it comes to computers....well er.
Right down to bussiness, I scan my photo's using Arcsoft Photo studio 2000, and I've tried 300dpi right up to 1200dpi then I reduce the image to 1024 width and the height is done auto, I then save it as a jpeg.
When I open up the file again I can zoom in a few times before it begins to break up. I can send photo's as E-Mail attachments and nobody says the quality is bad? I've got loads of brilliant quality slides from Manchester Airport (1970s) etc, but until I sort this problem out I can't be bothered spending so much time scanning them in.
Somebody help pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease...
