I am having some scanning issues. I had a bunch of scans that were only scanned at 150 DPI. I needed them done at 300 DPI, so I rescanned them on the same scanner. They just don't compare. The ones I scanned 4 or 5 years ago are far superior. The scans seem weak. Does anyone know if over time, scanners just stop being able to pick up colors and details? Do they wear out? Do I just have to go into the settings in my computer and play around with the settings before I scan? Can you recalibrate scanners? I know this is vague but maybe someone else has had these issues. I'm using one in the office because it is for my oversize drawings. They cost like 3 grand so there is no way I am getting a new one for my home, if you know what I mean. Even in Photoshop, I can't bring out the details. It's just not there. Help. This drawing is not an example, by the way.
