Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer
One approach that works for me is to scan the document at high resolution and then shrink it afterwards. For some reason this seems to result in higher quality than scanning at the final (lower) resolution in many cases. For example I use ACDSee Photo Manager to scan or post process a scan from elsewhere. Within ACDSee there is an option in the jpg output (file save as) dialog for quality versus compression. I set this to default to the highest compression and resave the jpg or convert to jpg if the file did not start out that way. This generally shrinks the file by up to 2x or even 4x without any degradation that I can see. For example the screen capture below went from 39k to 18k after this step with no resolution change. If that is not enough I then perform a resize operation, for example 50% which would further reduce the file size down to a quarter of the input size (the dimensions in each direction would shrink by 50%. Even after shrinking, I find that files lookbetter than if they had simply been scanned at the final resolution.
