    Help Scanning to Epson TX710W Multifunction

    I have just bought the above Multifunction Printer which has a scanner.
    I have been reading Books, Epson Site, Web but cannot find any help with what to set scanner to for best results for scanning photos.
    Have choices of Super Easy to Professional where you can change exposure, histogram, curves, brightness, contrast, saturation, dpi, etc. Can save to jpeg, pdf or tiff.
    Should I go Auto or change above settings? Photos are family snaps that I may want to crop or enlarge at a later date.
    Also, any tips on scanning negs? What do I do with negs once scanned to get a developed photo?
    Thanks for any help on this matter.

    I don't own of of them, but an Epson V700. Here's some rule of thumbery for straight jpegs (8-bit scanning) that I use...
    1. For photos, scan about 300-400 dpi (for a 10cm x 15 cm original print).
    2. For slides and negs, upscale to photo size and multiply above figures by that, eg. 150mm/36mm = about 4, actually 4.166..., so 4x300-to-400 dpi is about 1200 to 1600 dpi.

    For bigger resulting prints I use higher dpi values.
    Am...
    PS, I thought there were some threads on this.

    Another PS....
    My V700 s/w comes with automated procedures that make scanning a fall over. Does yours not give you a heap of options? Like, "What do you want to scan? Slides, Photos, Negatives..."
    At least I think that's the general idea because I don't use the auto procedures.
    Am..., again.

    Thanks for your reply. That gives me a starting point. When you scan photos do you do it on auto or do you fiddle with the exposure etc.? Searched for some threads but couldn't find any.

    I fiddle, but that's now, after a bit of familiarising with auto functions.
