Sorry I've been a bit longer than I said, but have had some trouble with my scanner. Trouble with the Twain (not train). To start with 2 of Linden road and 2 of Woodbrooke road. To keep within the 189kb limit I'll do them in two lots

Hi Mike,
Yes Moire patterns are a nusiance when scanning from books, mags etc, or even taking photos off the tv.
I don't own a scanner,(had 2, but both packed up) I now take photos of everything and get rid of the pattern in photoshop or paintshop pro.
If you google  moire pattern  there are some good articles on how to remove it during scanning, hope you don't mind me telling you this (you may already know it).
Regards John1.

Hiya,


Regarding your pattern clash; The printing process uses different screen angles for each colour to avoid moiré patterning, if the application you are using doesn't have a 'de-screening option you could try turning the image a few degrees before you scan and then 'returning' the scan afterwards.   
The quality of the scan can be further exasipated by reducing its size for the limitations of this site. If you use one of the many free hosting site then the quality may be improved.
Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and try to beat you with experience.
