No, Rob, I don't use it for anything but archival scans and prints :-)

I batch scan edited film as jpegs for my Portfolio filing system.  Then I 
edit from those anything that I think I might want to print.  Those are 
individually scanned at 4000 ppi, 16 bits, 16x and saved as Genuine 
Fractals or tiffs.  Those files uncompressed can be over 100 
MB.  Piezography likes lots of resolution so I often print at over 500 
ppi.  I love the Digital ICE 3 feature on the LS4000 and the ability to 
quickly scan a whole roll of film.
