Scanning Pages - Slightly Different Question
Posted 18 February 2011 - 02:53 PM
My scanner bed is almost 12 x 9, which means I need four scans to include the whole page. And the cover opens on the long side, so I have to turn the page 180 degrees for the second two scans. That creates shadows on different sides of the resulting images. Editing the merged images with PSE usually works, but it's time consuming. Has anyone encountered this issue, and found a simpler solution - short of going to Kinko's and paying them to scan the pages? There are NO dedicated scrapbook stores nearby; the closest is about 40 miles around the DC beltway. And to the best of my knowledge, neither Michael's, A.C. Moore, or JoAnn's - which are nearby - provide this service.
Thanks for any advice you can offer!

There is a business called "Scrapbooks to Share" that does exactly what you are looking for. They scan paper scrapbooks, save it to a disc, and then print 12 x 12 pages from the scan. Although I have not availed myself of this specific service, they have printed the vast majority of the digital pages that I have had printed so far, and they have done a wonderful job. Their prices for printing are quite reasonable. And you end up with all the pages on a disc for archiving purposes, or for reprints.
I think their website is sbtoshare.com or something close to that....
