I have two major purposes in mind for a scanner:
- Scanning individual photos and small, single-sided things.
- Scanning a bunch of my diaries.
My necessary tools are a) a flatbed sheet-fed duplex color scanner, b) Adobe Photoshop Elements and c) Adobe Acrobat.
Here is a scanner that could perform my required functions: Xerox DocuMate 3220. Not that expensive….
EDIT: Epson WorkForce GT-1500 is cheaper.
