Here's the story: I have a color print that's about 5" x 7.5" and I want to scan it to reprint it and make a duplicate. I scan it and it has a halftone pattern. I use Photoshop (median or whatever works) to remove the halftone pattern. Then scale down the dpi and print at the same physical size as the original. My questions are: What dpi is best for the initial scan be before applying any filters to remove the CMYK halftone? 600? 1200? What dpi should I plan on scaling down to for printing a clean, crisp image? How much impact will a scanner's "descreening filter" have on trying to get that crisp, clean print? Any and all helpful advice is appreciated!
