I meant to upload some images of kievan notation today, but our electricity
went out for most of the day. Before that happened, I was discovering that
our internet connection is not good enough to upload whole pages of Russian
chant books in 1200 dpi.
Would it be better to sent smaller snippets of the books at that resolution,
or should I try a lower res? If 1200 is necessary, I think can mine out
individual passages that show all the glyphs & variations of usage, etc.

for scans (which are noisy anyway), it's best to use JPEG.
It could be useful to scan the page at 150dpi and make 1200dpi of just
small cutouts of the glyphs.
