    Guys,

    I'm creating a wedding video and want to add a couple of old photos to the beginning of the movie.

    What resolution should I scan the pictures in at???? I assume that as they will be shown on a TV they will need to be scanned in slightly differently than normal????

    Please Help!
    Thanks
    Stace :D

    It's always best to go for the highest res available, then let your video-editing software interpolate / scale as appropriate.

    the only other option that will yield as good a result is to calculate the precise resulition that will yield the correct size for your video without scaling, but this is a bit excessive really!
