Things to consider when getting started:

  • Determine how you’ll use the image
    • Monitor display: PowerPoint or Web page
  • Determine what size you’ll use the image
    • Original size, larger or smaller
  • Knowing this information will help you choose the best settings for your image.
slide3
Image Resolution
  • Resolution is the sharpness or clarity of the image.
    • Measured by Pixels per Inch (ppi) or Dots per Inch (dpi).
    • Pixels are the smallest unit or element displayed on a monitor or captured by the scanner.
slide4
Scanned images are raster images. They are made of pixels (tiny squares of color).

slide5
Resolution Standards
  • Monitors display between 72 and 96 dpi
    • Scanning an image for PowerPoint or a webpage
        • 72 to 75 dpi
  • Printers on average print around 1200 dpi
    • Scanning an image for print
        • 150 to 300 dpi
slide6
Scaling and Resampling
  • The higher the resolution, the more “information” you are collecting from the image.
  • To enlarge an image, scan it at a higher resolution, scale the image and then resample.
  • The larger you scale the image the more detail and quality you loose, the computer has to “add” fake information to fill in the gaps.
  • About 1/4th of the original images size or 25% is about the largest an image should be enlarged.
slide7
Scaling an Image
  • Microsoft Photo Editor
    • Image (menu) > resize
    • Resizing using pixel size for monitor display

Resampling an Image

    • File (menu) > Resolution
slide8
Color

True-Color (16.7 million colors) – 24-bit

16.7 million possible colors

Best for photographs, complex clip-art, gradients

256 – 8-bit

256 maximum colors

good for clip art, simple images with solid fields of color

Creates a smaller file size

Web palette – 216 colors

Grayscale

black & white photography or clipart

Black & White

line drawings

basic clipart

Resolution and File Size

More information = larger file size !!!

Choose the most appropriate balance of quality and file size for each image and its use.

  • The higher the resolution, the larger the file size.
  • The more colors, the larger the file size.
    • I don’t need to scan and save an image at 300 dpi to display it in a PowerPoint.
    • I do need to scan an image and save it at 300 dpi if I’m going to reprint the image.

    • images to be printed
    • photography, line art,etc..
    • large file size

Tips and Techniques

Determine what the image will be used for and what size you’ll want the image to be, before getting started.

Scan at a higher resolution for enlarging an image and resample.

Getting rid of the moiré pattern.

Adjusting the color, contrast, etc…

Want to learn more techniques for making great images, take the Photoshop workshop on October 22.

Getting rid of the Moiré pattern:

  • Most scanners, have a descreen feature
  • From the HP Precisionscan Pro menu bar, click Advanced. A drop down menu will appear. A check mark next to a line item indicates that option is already active.
  • Choose “DeScreen”
  • Using the Effects > Despeckle filter in Microsoft Photo Editor
