Scanner time

Scanner time published on No Comments on Scanner time

I have plans to digitize selected scrapbooks, photos, writing and other ephemera from my youth in an effort to get rid of the heavy paper versions. I therefore brought stuff to work, thinking to use the scanner integrated in the super duper printer/copier/fax/egg timer/dishwasher at the office.

Today I discovered that the scanner maxes out at 300 dpi. This resolution is acceptable for text documents, but it will not serve for photos or artwork. So either I’m going to buy my own flatbed scanner or borrow my parents’, which they purchased for their own memorabilia digitization project  several years ago.

…Unless the egg timer over here has some secret high-quality scanner settings I’m unaware of.
