I think it is that the actual size is larger at 72 vs the 300, therefore at "equal" dpi, the 72 prints better.
Well, that's puzzling. I can't recall how old or what the situation was that I had a Walgreens Photo CD and found those small images. If the local Walgreens Noritsu can scan at that level, I've wasted a lot of time scanning my film A couple of times when I ordered "develop only," and they tried to sell me scanning, I told them why I didn't order it. They were in agreement.

Guess I'll check it out again. Or, maybe the CVS across the street, I don't recall their machine.
