But if the original premise of this thread is correct, and we can only resolve 300dpi with the unaided eye, there is no reason for photographic paper manufacturers to attempt to get better resolution than that. They expect the print to be the final product. It's just perverse people like us who keep wanting to scan prints (or even inspect them with a loupe), instead of going back to the negative or the digicam file.

I wonder if the subtle differences might come in when we consider just a 2D image of lower resolution and a 2D image which has perspective and depth, - those really high res. pics where we appear to see round corners. I don't see this on the claimed 300dpi photo prints I get at the moment. VOX
