Picture scanning update; 11/23 UPDATE: Hiatus November 15, 2014

Back in late September, I began the task of rescanning pictures I scanned nearly six years earlier. I was moving along at a relatively brisk pace, but haven’t scanned as much this month. When I first wrote about rescanning, I had 2,900 pictures left. I’m currently down to about 600.

Unfortunately, too many scratches on the glass of my high quality scanner – a Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II – led me to buy a replacement – a CanoScan LiDE 210. The LiDE 210’s quality isn’t as great, and it scans much slower, but it beats having to edit out scratches with the clone stamp tool in Photoshop. I also scanned some of the pictures on the Epson Workforce WF-3520, which is an all-in-one printer.

I’d like to finish scanning everything by New Year’s Eve.

11/23 UPDATE: I’m taking an indefinite hiatus from scanning. It has become too tedious and time-consuming to edit out dust and scratches in every scanned picture. I will finish scanning eventually, but it definitely won’t be by New Year’s Eve.
