I have learned something valuable about taking and saving photos of your art. If you are going to use them for printing you need to take the digital photos at a high resolution and don't adjust in any way except for cropping. Adjusting in your iphoto section such as a lighter or darker exposure, sharpening or any other thing make the pixels look messy or noisy.
