| p.1 #1 · Question about film scanning..... |
So i just spoke to a local lab, asking about film processing/scanning.....they asked if i wanted 4mb, 18mb, or 60mb scans.....i asked well what's the resolution (file dimensions) for each of those files?? She's like "well they're all at 300dpi"....i'm like "oookkkkaaayyyyy, so how do you get different 4mb, 18mb, or 60mb files if they're all scanned at 300 dpi?? " She's like "there are a lot of variables that go in to it, that unless you've gone to school for this, you wouldn't understand"..... she may not have understood what i was asking.....i just dont see how if you scan 35mm film at 300dpi, and end up with 423x282 file, and end up with a 60mb file....i'm PRETTTTTTY sure there's not some voodoo magic i'm missing, so someone please explain to me what this girl is talking about.....
