Hi, my school uses S&C printing for black and white photos and color. When i am editing pic's for the newspaper, i have some tips to use. First: ALWAYS scan the original at 300 or more DPI becuase then it gives you the better quality when use reduce the quality to 150dpi or so. Second, in photoshop, open the image, go to "Image" then "adjustments" then select levels at the top of the menu, select either auto or play round with it yourself (this is best for repinting the picture) I got to go so PM me ifff i dont write the rest of this buy tommorow. bye......
