Simply stated, I want to print large photos with a computer and not in a darkr oom. What is the best way to get there ?
I am interested in scanning large format negatives and then printing them digita lly. I would liketo be able to scan from a 4x5 to an 11x14 neg and print up to a B size (11x17) picture (even larger if possible, I like big)
Can anyone give me any advice as to which scanner, printer, paper, software, etc to buy. Are my size requirements too ambitious fora n aerage budget and if so, what size might be more affordable for a non-professional.
Also, what kind of detail (dpi, lpi, 10x mag), re sharpness, contrast, transiton , is it reasonable to expect and can it be as good as a true photo process?
