Scan each photo or lay out a few on the clean glass of your scanner. Go to the settings menu and find the custom settings area. Set the resolution to 300dpi for similar size printing or 600 if you want to enlarge the print. Set to jpg for small projects or TIFF for large projects. Turn off any auto corrective settings. Scan in color. Now, as it starts to scan press down on the scanner lid with your hand. Scan again a couple more times so I can pick the best one that is the most clear and in focus scan.
When it comes to prints that can't be scanned on a scanner like old prints stuck in frames it's better to photograph them. Make sure no sunlight is directly hitting the photo. Be in the shade with no direct light sources around to prevent glares. Set light sources at 45 degree angles. Set your camera photo setting to high quality 8 megapixel or higher. RAW would be best if you have that option. (Canon cameras only). Turn off the flash. Stand directly in front of the photo, be absolutely still (maybe use a tripod or lean against something sturdy), zoom in to fill the viewfinder with the entire photo/frame, make sure it's focused and shoot. Take several shots and email them to me so I can pick the best candidate for editing. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
