Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

300 to 350 dpi is practically no difference in resolution - but 300 is easier to calculate. Line graphics are pencil and ink drawings, final drawings, construction plans with inscriptions, tables and then also prints such as wood and copper cuts and etchings. With 600 dpi you have your photos in any...

Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

The steps in hundreds are already okay. If you give data for the offset printing, the companies like my resolutions mentioned above. 300 dpi are for good quality images. 600 dpi or 1200 dpi are used for fine or extremely fine line graphics. 2400 dpi and above are actually only used for positive or n...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Absque fenestris, Yes, a direct LocalTalk connection from the mac to the printer. Was working fine with a rather slim cable (compare to the parallel one). I don't think that this printer has ever been connected to a pc machine before. Hello arvY99 there comes memories of 10Base 2 and coax cables. I...

Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

300 dpi is a matrix of 300 x 300 dots, corresponding to 600 x 600 dots, etc. These matrices should be easily divisible - even the image processing software appreciates this. Photoshop, for example, also displays intermediate values worse: good are 25%, 50%, 100% and the other hundreds of steps. GIMP...

Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

Gratias tibi, absque fenestris. I'll take note that 2300 DPI is the max I should go. Oh, we have access to Epson v 800 , about 30 minutes farther away. Is the v800 better (faster scans, better-quality scans), to make it worth the added time to get to it? Your welcome. It's generally recommended to ...

Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

According to this we get a resolution of only about 2300 dpi - that's just 40% of the claimed resolution! The sensor of the V750 is able to get the indicated 6400 pixels per inch, however the "High Pass Optics" system of the scanner does not nearly reach the required quality required for capturing ...

... Absque fenestris, The printer was connected directly to the mac, neither print server at that time nor around now. Thanks to you too about your comment regarding the parallel/usb cable, one more unsuccessful story! Bid on a used print server on eBay. A new simple print server costs about $50.-....

Re: Gonna scan photos from the 80s and 90s. Which file format from this list should we use?

300 dpi = 4" x 6" (1:1) 600 dpi = 8" x 12" (2:1 length x width doubled, area quadrupled ) 1200 dpi = 16" x 24" (4:1 length x width quadrupled, area is sixteen times larger ) The amount of data will increase according to the area in the same proportion ... https://www.filmscanner.info/en/EpsonPerfect...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

It was connected to a mac years ago, printed well and would like to use it again now. Connectors excepted, was there a substantial evolution in the printing protocols? If the printer was connected to a Mac, is there still a print server around? So exactly this HP 6MP printer was attached to my Mac ...

I watch my DVD's on a B&O cathode ray tube...
Quality - well yes! Can you argue about that... Either the movies are bad - or not.

In any case, the sound is better than on any flat monster... :mrgreen:

I want to get control of my Echo dot.
So - you will definitely not get control over Alexa and any echoes...

the little Alexa will definitely be taken over by the big Jeff and his rather overlapping empire...- somehow funny to read that in a Linux forum... :mrgreen:

Yes! Apple and its system means surveillance and a permanent and penetrating nanny. Like the other OS... Even on this stupid system you can run alternative web browsers and load free software like GIMP, LibreOffice, Scribus, Inkscape and many more - and they work pretty well. Does that mean beatings...

Re: BIOS update

On some devices Apple already does something like this: they call it firmware update and the affected Mac then executes very strange start sequences, partly with several reboots. Here pure Unix seems to be in the game... Some Macs ended up as garbage after this procedure - my MacBook 2009, for exam...

Yes, I know Zim is not necessarily a word processor - although I use it as a handy notepad and to filter out text formatting.

Re: Linux for my grandmother.

Grandma doesn't really testify: The good lady can be 50, 60, 70 or well over 90 years old... More meaningful would be: does she know anything about computers or not? If Yes: then you can discuss Linux... If No: it depends a bit on her age - if your grandmother is no longer at work I would bet on And...
