Capter 5. Line Art Scanning > Closing Thoughts

Closing Thoughts

Lately I've been noticing that a lot of the line art out there is inferior to what I used to see only a few years ago. Check it out for yourself! Pick up any magazine (even the high-end ones sometimes have this problem) and look through it for line art images. If your experience is anything like mine, you'll probably see some really mediocre stuff—edges are jagged, lines are broken up, and patterns look clogged. My theory is that people stopped sending out for line art scans and started performing them in-house.

That's fine, but only if you're not sacrificing quality for convenience. After reading this chapter, I hope you'll agree with me that you can have both. As long as you know how to get a good scan that captures the right amount of detail, and then know how to enhance the scanned image in Photoshop, there's no reason why you can't end up with exquisite line art.
