Best way to scanner pictures

Margie, if you only have to scan real pictures, almost every scanner will do. If their size is big enough, then there is no need to buy an expensive scanner. If you still have the negatives of the same pictures and you want real quality, it is a complete different story. Even from old negatives you often get a lot more detail and contrast as from the pictures. But having pictures, say 3 x 4 inch. 7,5 x 10 cm.
If you scan at 1200 Dpi, and every modern scanner can, you get pictures sized 3600x4800 pixels that is 17 Mega pixels. A size most modern cameras can't produce.
The only reason to buy a scanner and not an all in one could be, you have more possibilities with a real scanner. But you need a computer.
The not so expensive Epson V370 could scan to 4800 dpi, giving you a 16 times bigger picture. Don't use that for real photos, because you end with 280 Mega pixel pictures. No computer could handle that. It has this resolution, because it also can scan negatives and slides. But it can get the maximum out of you pictures.
If you only once need to scan 100 pictures and after that never use a scanner. I'm not sure the "better" result on a real scanner is really important. And if you also need a new printer to print the pictures you could be better of with a all in one. It is cheaper, and you could use the printer later for everything else you need to print. Most all in ones, cost the same or even less than a V370. I'm sure Canon and HP do have good scanners to. I use an Epson V700 for years, and it is still supported for the new operating systems. I often use it for pictures, negatives and slides and I'm pleased with the results. I digitised hundreds and hundreds slides and negative and lots of pictures of which I don't have the negatives. (I also have a Canon all in one, but only use it to make a one to one copy on A4 plain paper, without the use of a computer. )

i hope op ei did not complicate this matter.

Can I scan legal size paper with the Canon MP 240


You can scan the largest size of paper that will fit on the glass area of the scanner (the platten).

If your legal paper fits in this area or, at least the text printed on it fits well within the borders of platten, then you can scan it.

Your scan will show you a preview of the image scanned so you can see if all the text has been scanned from the original document before you save the scanned image on the computer or copy print it.

Legal Paper Size is: 8.5" x 14" (216mm x 356mm)

A4 Paper Size is: 210mm x 297mm

Letter Paper Size is: (8.5" x 11") 216mm X 279mm

This printer's Scanning Width is: A4/Letter

This printer's Scanning Length is: A4/Letter

I hope this helps.

Epson V200 Copy Utility Problem with Incorrect Margin Output

I had the same problem forever and i just sat down today to fix it.
I have a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350w for my printer. The resolution
is set default at 600x1200 when in the Output Paper - Paper setting.
Change the resolution for your printer if you can to 1200x 1200 in the output paper - paper setting in the copy utility software, and
that should solve your problem with this half page copies. It might
still cut off some margins at the very edge, but most of the time they're just
plain paper margin. Hope this helps you out.

All in one

this can be a tricky issue, just like getting pictures to print out the size you want. basically, you either need a program like Adobe photoshop where you can change the size of the image, or you need to scan them in at a higher resolution. you can set this in your scanning software before you scan the photo. to give you a rough example: your laptop screen might have a resolution around 1280x720, if scan in a photo at 640x480, it will only cover around half your screen. This is the simple way to do it. If you have photoshop, you can open any sized picture and change the picture size (sometimes you will loose quality). hope this helps :)
