Scanning Paper Scrapbooks

7 posts in this topic

Hi - it's been a while since I asked a question but this is one I've really wondered about. I just recently started digitally scrapping after years of doing it the traditional way. All of my "good" photos are in scrapbooks and most were prior to digital (and I didn't have the foresight to keep the negatives - duh!). I have been wondering about hand scanning these photos so I can re-do them digitally. Is it possible to get good quality photos with a hand scanner? If anyone has experience with this, any advice would be appreciated - brand, etc. I have a Mac, if that matters. :unsure:

Becky is right. The Flip Pal is a great way to scan photos that are in albums without removing them. I've had great success with it. The stitching software is super easy to use if any of the photos are bigger than a 4x6.

April and Becky are so right! I scan photos from my paper scrapping albums all the time and they turn out just great! I use the flip-pal too!

I recommend the Flip Pal as well. You can scan in really high resolution and also put the scanner on top of the photos/pages and see what you are scanning.
