Scanning through photoshop 4.0
Posted on 1998-07-22
I am using a parallel port scanner to scan at 300 dpi text documents A4 size but landscape. I have problems resizing it to 640 or 800 pixels (for internet publishing). I have resized (image resize) it to 640 pixels but the text does not seem to be readable. It seems that the text has loss alot of resolution after resizing. The final format saved is a gif file.(would prefer jpg though). The original text document is from a cyclo sytled reproduction (readable but not as good as offset printing. Tried faxing it to Winfax 8 and exporting it to pcx, bmp or tif, result is even worse after resizing. (tried faxing at 150 and 200 (fine) resolutions.
