Many thanks for that. That would explain why, when saving as TIFFs I got such massive file sizes. Can I ask why those settings are available? My scanner can scan up to 16000 odd dpi. What on earth would those be used for?
If I had a professional reproduction at say 16x12, would 600dpi really look the same as 300?
It seems I need to go back and rescan which I think I will do with our favourite ones to re-create the masters. As I have scanned 200 odd pics already and many wont be enlarged (as we have our album already) I might leave many as is. Would I be right in saying that as long as they are set to the lowest compression on both scan and touch up, I would lose little? I have enlarged both considerably on screen and cannot see any difference but don't understand why the new pic is bigger!!!!
