Re: Color Space for scans

Firstly NEVER assign a profile.   Always convert TO a profile.  I can not see why you would want such a high pixel count file for printing , I would think it could become more of a hassle than an advantage.... unless of course your prints are going over a very large hoarding.

If you intention is to work with " normal " size A1 or A2 sized prints , I would convert to 16 bit and convert to colour space,  dust spot the images then make any adjustments before resizing to the print size at no more than 600 ppi . ..... or 720 for Epson .  Keep your Originals backed up somewhere safe , but use your newly converted files for repro.

The conversion from 8 bit to 16 is a bit of a lie and you might still have to watch how far you go with big changes to contrast .

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .
