Which Resolution Am I?

If resolution has you puzzled, we can help. Here is a handy guide to help you choose the right resolution for scanning your photos.


About Resolution

Resolution describes the amount of detail collected from a photo during the scanning process. It is much the same as the number of megapixels recorded by a digital camera. The higher the number of megapixels (or resolution), the more detail captured in the photo and the bigger the image file will be.

Choosing a resolution that is right for you:
Depending on how you plan to use the digital images, there are two resolutions to choose from: Standard and HIGH. For some applications, standard resolution will be just fine, while for others, you’ll get the best result by choosing HIGH resolution.

Standard Resolution

Scans produced standard resolution are approximately equivalent to a 2 megapixel digital photo (for a 6x4 original). This resolution is ideal for: reprinting, sending by email, or viewing on your home PC.

High Resolution

Scans produced at HIGH resolution are approximately equivalent to an 8 megapixel digital photo (for a 6x4 original). This resolution is recommended for: enlargements, cropping, and restoration.

The following sample scans provide a guide of the digital image size for each resolution.

Resolutions Guide
Standard High
Photos 300 dpi Click Example 600 dpi Click Example
Slides 2000 dpi Click Example 4000 dpi Click Example
Negatives 2000 dpi Click Example 4000 dpi Click Example
And more… 300 dpi Click Example 600 dpi Click Example

You’ll find that slides and negatives need to be scanned at a much higher resolution than photos to produce the same size digital image, for the simple reason that slides and negatives are smaller.
