I have an all-in-one, and it has no color film scanning software.

I want to send my color negs to digmypics, as I have had slides scanned by them in the past.

I need some opinions/experiences as to the correct resolution to request. They suggest 2500 dpi but I am very tempted to choose 3200. They were shot by a professional, outdoors in bright light.

I chose their suggested dpi for slides and was a little disappointed at the result on a 50" flat screen, but it may have been the slides themselves. It's just hard to tell without dragging out a projector. BTW, other than that, I was very pleased with their work.

Thanks for your advice.
