My scanner is a few years old but still does a more then decent job - HP Scanjet 2400
I always set DPI to 300 when scanning and edit each scanned image in Photoshop - removing letters where necessary, adjusting the colors, rotate, resize,etc. And to put my tag on them.

I use the option ' save for the internet' in photoshop to reduce the file size but to still have a nice scan - and I agree that if set on Medium quality is okay , mine is at 75 usually.

If the file is still too big I use Paint Shop Pro to compress it a bit more.

I also agree with those who rip mag apart lol , I do use the cutter often as well.

Plus, a black piece of paper and a white piece of paper to get rid of the lines/letters on the other side of the image- this was already said so I wont stop much on that.

Thats pretty much it

ps. If its a huge page spread I also usually merge those in Photoshop plus use a clone stamp and a few other tricks of mine to make it perfect.In this case I scan each page separately.

a neat little tip for all you scanners out there; when you've made your scans open them up in windows paintbrush and click save. paintbrush has amazing compression routines so will turn a file from 2.5mb to about 350k with no loss of quality.

^well it doesn't matter if the image is a jpeg. or not, in photoshop when you save a picture as jpeg. it shows you up an option to put more or less quality in it & also shows how much size it will be with depending of how much quality you chose to put.

I will search for a free program to do that!

Do you think this is a good scan? I have been messing around with my scanner today, and found some new settings.

Okay I got it...that program works perfectly for what you want

Open the program -> Editor -> on the list on the left, click on the paste where you saved the pictures & then they will show up in tumbanails for you to click on the one you want to edit & it will show up -> down on the right you have the "Save" click on it -> Save As -> Select Image Type -> Jpeg. -> then will show you up a window with a bar to put more or less quality to it & you will see with how much size it will get with.

enjoy!

That looks like a great scan to me! Clear, sharp, good blacks and whites, and hardly any scanner grain!

^ thank you.. I used to just click 'Scan'.. but now I noticed there is an 'advanced scan' button, which lets you change settings e.t.c (which I didn't know you could do)

I can't stop scanning now..
