Question: What would be an advantage of scanning at 4,000 ppi instead of a lower resolution?

Answer: You will be getting more detail in your image. If you want to blow it up in the future, you will be able to blow it up to a much bigger size.

Here are some examples of PPI differences but they just go to 3200 ppi:

We think you can see that, the higher the resolution of the scan, the more detail you can see and the bigger you can print. The higher resolution scan has more details and you can see the pixelization of the lower resolution scans. It all depends on the quality that you want for your scans. Each step up represents higher quality of the scan.

Pixels and megapixels:

Just a note: Some people say DPI, which is taken from the printing term of "Dots Per Inch" which are actual dots on a printing plate. Since we are talking about digital images here, which have pixels and not "dots", we use the correct terminology of "Pixels Per Inch." Just a small technicality. We know what you mean if you say DPI, so don't worry about it.

Pixels are the basic building blocks of every digital image; the more pixels in your photos, the better the Print appearance.

A megapixel means one million pixels and is the unit of image-sensing capacity in a digital camera, or the amount of information the camera can capture. Generally, the more megapixels a camera has, the better the print resolution will be.

We scan at 4,000 pixels per inch and our 35mm slide scanned images have a total of 5,256.00 X 3,544.00 = 18,627,264 pixels.
