Scanner DPI issues

I am trying to scan a section of a photo using the max scan dpi of 19200, but it comes up with 'scan file size is too large for the available virtual memory'

I can't see how this is possible as I have a 3.2G quad core, with 4G ram and 2Tb disk space with 200G dedicated to virtual.

I also get the message 'file size is too large for the available drive space' when I try the entire photo. The photo only comes out to 36Gb, that's pennies compared to 2000Gb space!!

Is this a glitch in the driver software? any help would be appreciated.

Well..that's fine, but the virtual memory dance, is not just about size(which we all know is not the only issue, right)?..smiling.

at any rate, you'll need to allocate the VM to this function through your admin panel. You familiar with that?

I have used last 4 year canon 2900B printer. How to set 300 dpi printing resoluation


Canon PIXMA Manuals MG2900 series Resolution
Resolution The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm). The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail.

How to Set the Resolution You can set the resolution in Resolution on the (Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.
Item Type Use Color Mode Appropriate Resolution Color photo Copying
(Printing) Color 300 dpi Creating a postcard Color 300 dpi Saving to a computer Color 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Color 150 dpi Black and white photo Saving to a computer Grayscale 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Grayscale 150 dpi Text document (document or magazine) Copying Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 300 dpi Attaching to e-mail Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 150 dpi Scanning text using OCR Color or Grayscale 300 dpi Important
  • If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
Note
  • When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than the recommended one above.

Tip

LPI, PPI,DPI conversions


Here is a conversion chart for DPI (Dots per inch) to LPI (Lines per inch) or PPI (Pixels per inch)

180 DPI................31 lines/inch or 68 PPI
360 DPI................63 lines/inch or 138 PPI
720 DPI................127 lines/inch or 280 PPI
1440 DPI..............255 lines/inch or 561 PPI
2880 DPI..................510 lines/inch or 1122 PPI

If you plan to enlarge your image, it is better to enlarge it when you're scanning rather than in your application. Each time you modify
an image, you lose some quality. Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as a 35 mm slide or wallet-size photo, you'll need
to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality, but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient. You must
manually adjust the resolution (dpi) to maintain the same image quality when you resize your image. For example, if you have a 300
dpi 2 x 2-inch image that you want to enlarge to 4 x 4 (a factor of 200%), increase the Scale setting to 200% or change the resolution to 600 dpi.

Change the scan resolution to 200 dots per inch (200 dpi). If 300 it tajes a few seconds. If 1200 dpi, it may take really long.

Brother MFC9440CN scan resolution


Yes you do this from the application that yu are using to do the scan. Chooese the setup or preferences tab for the scanner in the app and you should get a list of available optical resolutions from 75dpi, 100 dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 600dpi, 1200dpi upwards.

The optical resolution is 1200 x 2400dpi max and interpolated (from software) is 19200 x 19200 dpi.

Scanning files to large


It's the resolution you are using to scan. Try a lower setting. for documents, 150-200 dpi is fine. That will produce smaller files.

Need to get scanned photos to between 300 and 600 dpi


What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.

How to change to a higher resolution on a mfc-240c


Hi tammy, you can either use the Windows printer driver which will allow you to set scanning resolution up to 1200 dpi which you can access through a program like Photoshop (File--Import) or the Brother Scanner Utility to go up to 19200 dpi resolution. If for some reason you don't have the scanner utility on your computer, you may have to install it from the disc that came with MFC-240. If you need further help let me know.
