PPI Option

PPI (Pixels Per Inch) determines the file size and image quality (resolution) of the scan.

  • 150 PPI are low resolution scans with a small file size. They are most often used when the image is displayed using a computer screen such as a web page, Power Point presentation, school report, etc.
  • 300 PPI are medium resolution scans typically used for print that does not require high resolution such as desktop publishing, newsprint, reports, etc. because the file size of these images can be large and they are not generally used for computer display.
  • 600 PPI are high resolution scans. These are used for better quality printing and publishing. The file size is very large.

File Type Option

  • JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) files used from a compression method that enables fast loading of the image.
