In an idea world I would scan all my photos at the maximum resolution and save them in TIFF uncompressed format. However file size has become an issue as I move up to the physical limit size of this hard drive. The second photo is over 7 times bigger than the first and has slightly smaller dimensions.
Compression means a loss of data usually seen as a softness of details. Still these files demonstrate how a flatbed scanner can match the quality of a dedicated slide only scanner.
And for me the chance to think that I was at this spot in 1972.

This file was scanned to a JPEG file to save a bit on storage space at the expense of using compression
