  • Film scanning

    I am not sure if this is the right place for my question.
    My mom is geting her affairs in order, she's almost 78. She gave me a photo album full of pictures taken over the years of me.
    My question is, I have a combo printer/scanner/copyer, the HP Photosmart C3180 all in one. I like to scan the pictures and achive them them to dvd and to our file server. should I scan one at a time or fill the scanner bed and then scan?
    I don't think there is over fifty pictures, I might be wrong tho.

    Thank you

    I don't think it matters either way. The scanner is only able to capture so much information per square inch of photo, so it doesn't matter if you do them individually or 5 at a time. The individual files would be much larger, and they would be harder to organize and/or present (like in a slide show) if you do them in batches, but they can always be digitally separated later for projects.

      Yeah, as Cing said, you can fill the bed and just crop out and resave each individually, or just do one at a time. Start with one, if it's horribly slow, then try a full bed and crop each one out.
