What scanners do you use for larger artwork?

dunno. but you can scan a 18x24 on that scanner, if you do it in 8 pieces and stitch it. for the largest stuff, get an SLR, its worth it in the long run and has more uses.

"What scanners do you use for larger artwork?"

Same. For paintings larger than 9x12 I make multiple overlapping scans and use Microsoft ICE (free download) to stitch them together.

A Cruse scanner can scan a large image in one swipe. I don't own or operate one but I have one available to me. I believe you could easily scan a 36" x 48" probably larger. The machine requires it's own room and is rather large. I sent them a client with a map that was two 30" x 72" pieces which they could also stitch together. I have my modest paintings scanned with it. The largest I have done was 22" x 40" it does an awesome job. The resulting file is well over 200 MB.

The Smithsonian uses a similar Cruse machine. There is nothing quite like it.

That is some scanner, indeed!

Wonder how much does it cost.
