HINTS FOR PREPARING SCANS
FOR WEB SITES AND E-MAIL
(Written in English instead of computerese because I'm not a computer
A monitor (not the new flat ones) is the same as a TV picture tube and
can only show 72 dpi (dots per inch) no matter how large the screen. There
are a few that will show 100 dpi but very few. Anything larger than 72 dpi
is wasted and slows the loading or sending time tremendously.
When you scan your photos or beadwork name the file with something you
will recognize and store them in a folder on your hard drive. i.e. pinkrose.jpg
Do not put spaces or periods in your title. You can put a dash ( - ) or
underlilne ( _ ) to seperate the words if you want to. i.e. pink-rose.jpg
Open your photo or paint program and open your scan from it. I use Adobe
Photoshop so I can't give you exact directions but hopefully I can give
you a few hints.
