Hi Alan...I'm a bit late coming to the party but I started this a few days ago and only just got round to finishing it. Lovely photo.

Another slightly different one a little more muted colours.

My pleasure Alan...It would be a good idea to turn off the "Sharpening" facility on your scanner as it produces a white halo effect which is difficult to remove without blurring which results in a loss of detail.

Greetings Carol.

Thanks for the advice and apologies for taking so long to get back with my question. Not enough hours in my day at the moment.

My daughter's old CANNON scanner was a wiz with many types of saving options and a range of resolution dpi's from 75 to 600, but with the new computers on 64 bit technology it will not work.

I am now stuck with the scanning bed on my big new HP Office Jet printer (see attached scan of control options) and editing with just the simple PAINT that came with WINDOWS 10 on my HP Pavilion 500, as my old faithful Photo Studio 2000 is no longer copmpatable either. [Both this set up and my previous 2003 XP were presents from a daughter.]

Not being a techno wiz I do not know what the LOW MEDUIN & HIGH compression options mean. Do those controls affect the issue you have raised, and if so which, in your opinion, is the best option?

I'm sure others could be in the same position as myself so any replies would be appreciated.

Regards,

Alan.

The lower the compression the better.

Hi Alan...I agree with Andy....Scan at 300dpi in colour mode with the lowest compression setting and save to best quality...As I use an Epson scanner I'm not familiar with your model but there should be a button for preferences where you can turn off the sharpening feature.
Someone may be able to advise you further.
