I'm a novice in the digital darkroom so forgive the question if it's too
obvious.  I also have the LS4000 and recently got an Epson 2200 to pair with
it.  Are you saying below that you scan an entire uncut roll of negatives
via batch scan?

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.
