Hi Alan, I am sorry there was no image attached but yes 600dpi should print very well for most size images, I print off photographs 300 DPI for A3 size prints. Just thought though what size is your negative ???

Regards

Sarah

What size negative have you scanned, the file is 1417 x 945 px that you have posted. Maybe you resized it to post it here ?

I worked out the size with this tool http://auctionrepair.com/pixels.html based on those sizes it would give you a print of  2.5 x 1.5 inch which is too small.

What sort of size are you trying to achiever ?

Regards

Sarah

Hello Sarah , the negative is 160 wide by 120 high . I did shrink it as it was about 1.5mb so too big to post . I ideally would like a 6 x4 photo if possible
Regards
Alan

Hi Alan,

I have just inverted the picture you posted and had a closer look and I am sorry but it does not look as sharp as I had hoped, but maybe the negative is not sharp either ? I also changed the levels to bring out some detail. Does the negative look sharp to you ?
