PCWorld.com - Digital Focus: The ABCs of Scanning Old Photos
Stowe wants to put some of her old prints into digital form, and has asked me to look into buying a scanner. A couple of observations:
1. The size of each scan is enormous--at least 10MB and maybe way more if you want high quality.
2. Will she want to scan negatives? or prints?
If negatives, then the quality is much better, but the cost is at least $300.
