Chapter 3. Startup > Scanning

Scanning

Using a scanning device and scanning software, a slide, flat artwork, or a photograph can be digitized (translated into numbers) so it can be read, displayed, edited, and printed by a computer. You can scan directly into Photoshop, or you can use other scanning software and save the scan in a file format that Photoshop opens.

To produce a high-quality scan for print output, start with the highest-quality original possible. Some scanners will compress an image’s dynamic range and increase its contrast, so choose a photograph with good tonal balance. If you’re going to scan it yourself, set the scanning parameters carefully.
