    Peter - although file size and compression efficiency will depend to some degree on the actual level of detail in the image, you should be able to get a 500 pixel (long side) image down to about 60-65KB, sometimes a bit larger. In Photoshop, I find that a value of 8 often produces a good balance between image clarity and file size. Thumbnail versions of 125-150 pixels (again, long side) should typically fall between 10KB and 15KB in size.

    I wrote a brief description of some of the scanning techniques I now use after several years of poking at different workflows. It's available on my Resources page at:

    Essentially, I've found that resizing in steps usually works best, along with a rather light touch of unsharp mask at each step. The plain Sharpen tool seems too harsh for my tastes.

    Hi Ralph,

    Thanks for the suggestions and the link. I'm on the way out at the moment, but it looks like some very good info.
