Thanks for sharing it, Erica :) it was my pleasure! I got really annoyed by people asking for sooooo much money for photoshop actions when it's actually so easy.

Yay! That was more or less my method, but that last part about the white pixels that sometimes keep being around... I needed that! Thanks!

Finally getting a chance to watch this!  Thanks Natascha.

I have a question......My scanner has resolutions from 50 - 4,800 dpi.  If I scan at the highest setting (4,800 dpi) do you know how big of a print of lettering can be made before the lettering gets pixelated or distorted?

Are there any charts around saying 300 dpi goes up to 8 x 10 size or anything?

Curious if someone wanted to make a giant poster or banner how big they can print.

That's the other thing, I think you'd have to make it a PDF vs a JPG to go big right?

Thank you ~
