Scanning photos, resolution question

buyorsell888August 18, 2011

I just bought a photo scanner, Epsom V600. I need to scan some slides to be saved to a DVD to be played at my high school reunion.

I know to scan at 300 dpi for the Internet but not sure what resolution to use for playing in a DVD player? they will be shown on TVs that are about 26"

Might look at the link below... if your scanner software shows it.. apply a little sharping too.

Now lets compare the resolutions from the chart above to a film scan. The chart below lists the resulting output resolution of a standard 35mm slide or negative. If you compare a 2000 DPI film scan to the output resolutions of TVs and computer monitors you'll see that a 2000 DPI film scan is more than sufficient for viewing on your computer or television.

Here is a link that might be useful:
