Are there any `rules' or should I say guidelines? It would be a shame if I started scanning stuff and no one would like the result.
The only rule I can stress (and I can never stress it enough) is to scan no lower than 300dpi. Most scanning software defaults to 72dpi, which is just useless. Less pixels means less original image. Scan a page with text at 72dpi and then again at 300dpi. Now reduce the dimensions of the pictures (I dunno, to 640* width) and try to read the text. There will be a noticable difference.
