This seems like an obvious curiousity, but I have yet to find a good explanation: If I want to scan a photo, say a little photo 2x3 to put in, say, the corner of a document, what good does it do to have the capability of scanning and printing at 300 dpi if the only way to 'work with' the image on-screen requires a much lower resolution (or a scaling-down which would lose resolution data)? In other words, how do I scan and print at the higher resolutions when I have to use the monitor to place and position the image in the document? Any help is appreciated.
