Hello, I have a question regarding scanning slides for an eventual printing in 24 x 16" as maximum. I use the Nikon coolscan 50, 4000 dpi and 8 bit color depth. The resulting files are about 22 MB in JPEG format, and the size of the scanned image is 24 x 36 mm. First question: why are the files so big? Second: how should I resize the image in photoshop in order to enlarge the 24 x 36 mm to 16 x 24" keeping the enough resolution to print it? Thrid: how can I have the same image in a smaller file, still keeping the right resolution for later printing?
Thank you!!
