How do I decide which resolution to select when scanning?
If you plan to enlarge the image so you can print it at a larger size, you may need to increase the resolution. If you are using Epson Scan, follow these guidelines:

  • You will enlarge the image as you scan it.

  • If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting (Home and Professional modes only), you do not need to increase the Resolution setting.

  • You will scan the image at its original size, but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.

  • Increase Epson Scan's Resolution setting in your scan. Increase the resolution by the same amount you will increase the image size to retain a high image quality. For example, if the resolution is 300 dpi (dots per inch) and you will double the image size later, change the Resolution setting to 600 dpi.

  • You will scan the image at 100% or smaller size.

    • E-mail/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi

    • Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi

    • Fax: 200 dpi
