Wow Akalai! Fantastic post! Thanks soo much for your advice!
I have used a flatbed scanner in the past, and the results turned out quite grainy.
How is the quality of a flatbed scan and then digital printing at approx A4?
I might do some trials at my parents place when I go next. They have a flatbed scanner and reasonable quality printer
I know this is the wrong forum for this digital, and I also asked on HybridPhoto aswell, but I just thought some of you here may have a pretty good idea!
Seems I was right!
