Scanning Old Photos
Like you, I have countless boxes of photos, all taken before the digital age (and usually developed getting duplicate copies, remember that? ) I have wanted to scan these little creatures for years, but the idea of lugging my flatbed scanner to my desk, then having to open the top, put the picture on the bed, make sure its in the exact location, resetting the configuration every time I have a different size photo. Then, once they are scanned, having to crop and adjust and so on and so on and so on...so they have stayed in their boxes, waiting for the specific scrapbook project or retirement, which ever came first.
Then, I came across this.... The Kodak P460 personal photo scanner. This morning, I went through an entire box of old photos (it comes with this great sleeve to help with old photos that are deteriorating or curled....) in about an hour. An HOUR! My Ancestry.com page and my Family Tree Maker will be very happy!
Can I say...yipee!!!
