Michael is buying an all in one printer, and he's not going to do a lot of printing. He's doing more scanning of photographs. He's looking at sending the negatives and slides to a service. But it seems there are just too many models to choose from. What should he get? Leo recommends to check out Amazon reviews. They are always your friend. The Wirecutter is very good for recommendations, as is PC Magazine. The Epson Fast Photo (Epson is a sponsor of the TWiT Network) is expensive at $600, but if you have thousands of photos to scan, it's a good one to go with.
Jim wants to enter pictures in a photo show and the show wants them as JPEGs at 72 dpi. He has to scan his images to do it. Leo says that 72 dpi is at very low quality and it's obviously an online gallery. But he can scan his images at the highest resolution possible and save it in TIFF. That would be lossless compression. He can always open it in a photo editor and then lower the resolution to JPEG. Leo recommends Irfanview.
