I am not aware of Mapper doing any reduction, but then I've only ever
dealt with images set to a nominal resolution of 72 dpi. Maybe Mapper
reduces images set to a higher resolution? (Mapper itself certainly
doesn't, but maybe the Newton's QuickDraw routines do.)

The optimal scan resolution depends on the amount of detail you want to
capture. Afterwards, you should set the nominal resolution to 72 dpi.
