Hehehe......yep, we're getting a tad too serious 'round here......yep, no
doubt about it.  Ya see Denton, I'm down here in the tobacca and cotton
fields in South Carolina.  I am hard pressed to recall a 8-1/2" x 11"
photograph in anything printed around here, much less in color.  Madison
Avenue this ain't.  :-)

Your point is well taken, and clearly there is a difference in perspective.
You are also absolutely correct that a proper A4 size, full color, digital
image is *at least* 18MB in size.  My specific example was a locally printed
playbill for the local (volunteer) theatre troupe.  They needed a re-shoot
at the last instant for a playbill when the regular shooter's lab botched
the processing.  No image was more than 3x4 inches, all reproduced in B&W
only.  But, it was done very quickly and for next to no cost.

Oh, btw....the show *did* go on :-)
