Question about Computers & Internet
Scanning a document for printing can be very confusing. I hope that I can help shed light on this process to ensure that all of your documents will print out correctly from now on.
You can follow the below steps. Lets assume you are using a flatbed scanner and your document is one page.
You may be thinking, "My scanner has the capabilities of scanning at 1400 DPI. Why don't I just do that instead of trying to figure out what I should be scanning at. Plus, that would mean better quality anyway."
Well, actually it won't mean better quality because we are scanning at the highest quality your printer can print. In addition to this, it would create a HUGE file. You would be waiting for your printer to print for a LONG time, which could also result in freezing your computer (or the print shops computer, depending on where you're getting your document printed).
The reason your printer has those options in the settings is because DPI is based on the dots per inch at a particular image size. If you wanted to make a 300 DPI 16x24 poster of a 4x6 image, then you would actually have to scan the image at 1200 DPI to maintain the image quality.

The process of scanning a document is as follows;
