Fine Art Reproductions Need Superb Flat Bed Scanners

By: Stewart Wrighter | Posted: 17th June 2011

Scanners are part of our everyday life now whether we like it or not and most of us have a home version of one of these sitting next to the computer. The professionals though use the Eversmart Supreme or Eversmart Select versions since these are wide format for fine art printing and such. They provide a very clear resolution which is why the professionals like them so much.

Many people will want to produce a high definition copy, with good detail, at the larger end of the scale. This is very important if copies of paintings are to be produced of course. In fact, it really does not matter how good the printing is if the image scanned in is not up to par. Therefore, those who want this fine detail must really do their homework on scanners before they buy one. This is particularly true when scanning from 35mm slides since it is only the models mentioned above which will produce acceptable images. Some people will be able to reproduce prints directly from 'chromes' but for the best result, these machines will certainly give a good copy.

There are companies which provide this kind of machine for industry so it is well worth looking online for more information. Of course, the usual home scanners will work to some extent, but if there are any flaws in the scan, this will be shown up in huge proportions when the slide is blown up. This is why some photos do not make good posters since the details are lost along the way. Even the colors can look faded when they are blown up so the slide, the scanner and the printing has to be in sync at all times. This industry is very competitive so different manufacturers will bring out different versions of scanners on a regular basis. Each will have its pros and cons but those in the know will always go for a good company, like Kodak, if they want the reproductions to come out well every time,

Of course, this kind of machine is not cheap, as one would expect, but there is a thriving market for used and refurbished machines. However, one should always try to get the best one possible for the job at hand so that anomalies are not noticed. Museums tend to use these flat bed scanners to not only keep stock of their fine art pieces, they also produce them in poster form to sell to the general public. This is why the scanner has to be top notch. They would certainly not be able to sell anything that did not look like the real thing or if it had a blurry image.

They also use prints made on these flat bed scanners when they want to advertise exhibitions etc in the coming year. This is a wonderful way to reproduce art and it gives the general public a chance to own something similar to a painting that they may well have been admiring for most of their lifetime.
