Scanning currency

Paper Money - United States | user_9894

I read with interest, Longstrider's blog, about the scan of his currency. I know a bit about scanners and feel that I can help him save some money. Most scanners can be adjusted to scan at different ppi (pixels per inch and different resolutions for the type of document to be scanned. I scanned this $5 bill using 1200 ppi and then had to cut the resolution to upload it to the blog. It still looks great. I'm using a "free" HP printer with scanning abilities. It is one of the cheapest they make. The model is a HP Deskjet F4480. 

The scan could have been at 300 ppi and it would have looked as good. Zero cost to scan!

There's my 2 cents.

Thanks for the information. But as in Longstrider's blog if I start making pictures my wife would throw me out. I have a ton of coins and everything that go with them. I will keep it in mind for a special piece. Thanks. Mike.
