Hi Everyone, I'm completely new to the forum... here goes! I have some transparencies (Kodalux) from 20 years ago that I'm wanting to transfer over to digital (JPEG). They're of historical value and I'm planning to upload them onto a website (RedBubble) for possible sale as photographic prints and posters. Redbubble is demanding high resolution, 5,000 x 7100 pixels for their largest size poster... I'd like to go for it. I am a very low-tech individual. Some (perhaps obvious) questions, if you don't mind: The photo shop I took my transparencies to (a very well known one in the Allentown, Pa area) for some reason couldn't get anywhere near the number of pixels I need. I'm not sure why... They were using a flat scanner. I read that transparencies don't work as well as film on a flat scanner anyhow... Is that correct? One of their salesmen took me aside and said that I'd be better off scanning them with something like a Nikon Coolscan... how do they do with slides? Any Problems? They had one for sale... for $600. Someone else said that a drum scanner was the best way to go... but I can't find anyone around here that has one. Do I go to photo shops, graphic designers, printers, check in the Philadelphia area, or what? Lastly, someone else suggested another photo store with a Noritsu; I talked to the store and he claimed that he could get "ultra" high quality from transparencies. This place is easily accessible and has convenient hours. Am I going to get "ultra" or just better than average? I guess my real question is, should I go to the effort of tracking down a drum scanner or will the Noritsu do an "ultra" job with a lot less hassles? Thanks for your time!
