Digital copies of photographic prints, black and
white and color. In general the quality of the print should determine
the resolution at which the prints are scanned, but this is highly
subjective. I suggest scanning at a resolution of 300 dpi and 24-bit
color, or 8-bit grayscale for black and white.
Digital copies of photographic slides. I suggest
scanning slides at a resolution of at least 2400 dpi and 24-bit color.
Digital copies of photographic negatives. I suggest
scanning negatives at a resolution of at least 2400 dpi and 24-bit color, or
8-bit grayscale for black and white.

covers, etc., related to the ships, units or ports of call.
