Digital photo print services review (part 2)

Click on the thumbnails below to see larger images and a comparison between the originals and scans of the best and worst prints.

The prints were scanned with an Agfa Snapscan 1212u with default settings for glossy photo scans. The prints were scanned at 600 dpi and reduced to 480 pixels wide (preserving aspect ratio) with Paint Shop Pro 7. The unsharp mask filter with 0.7 radius, strength 75 was applied after reduction. Do not compare crops, firstly the park photo was cropped to 3:2 before printing, whereas the original is still shown as 4:3, secondly some cropping errors may have been introduced in the scanning process.
