Re: Scan or shoot photos

Other critical factors, especially in b/w (bitonal) will be the dpi and
threshold, the point at which something becomes black or white. Remember in
b/w scanning there is either one or the other. NO greys. Fiddle with the
settings and use a high resolution 300+ dpi. You'll get great results.
