I'm a medium format user that scans his negs via a Canon 9950F flatbed. What is the trick to really get tack sharp images to be able to be placed in flash files and or QTVR movies..

Is it best to scan high (2500dpi) and reduce to 72dpi or have I got the wrong end of the stick.

Some of the images I have seen on the fullframe qtvr sites have amazing detail in there pictures. Why can't I get the same detail via my scans?

with thanks

Make sure you apply some unsharp masking after down sampling your images. When down sampling I usually apply any adjustments such as levels first, then down sample then unsharp mask. usually a radius of .5 - 1.5 and amount of 50% - 180%... but those settings all depend on the image and the amount of down sampling.

Hope that helps.
