    Scanning 4x5 Polaroids

    How large can 4x5 B&W ISO100 Polaroid prints be scanned and printed, and still l ook reasonably good? I know this is subjective, but I've seen 4x5 Polacolor pri nts that are quite acceptable when reproduced photographically as 16x20 dye tran sfers. TIA

    Scanning 4x5 Polaroids

    I've scanned 4x5 polaroids and printed them out 20x24 (epson) and they look really nice, they are not tack sharp but very nice. I use a epson 1100 flatbed, the big trick is to keep dust from sticking to them when they are drying, not some much a prob for b/w which dry very fast but big concern for slow drying color. Give it a try it won't hurt.
