At what resolution should I scan?

Set the scan resolution at double what your final image’s resolution will be.

Image type final resolution scan resolution
web image 72 150
image for print 300 600


Small images: If you are going to be enlarging a small image the higher your resolution the better the enlarged image will look. Experiment to get the best results!
