My Sam' can only do 8x10. I'm refering to ppi I guess. I get confused bt they are almost the same. When I scan a photo to be printed at sames I must
scan at 300 otherwise the Fuji machine fails to open the file.
At Wolf the machine was able to open 600 and 1200 but when I tried to
operate at 1200 the machine ground to a halt. The 1200 was 6M in size the 600
I was able to get white borders and matte finish at Wolf. It looks as good
as their file processing.
