Scanning from scrapbook
If you don`t store your old photograps in paper envelopes, then these are probably in a scrapbook. The scanning of a page of a scrapbook is possible, but not expedient: the focus of the optics of the scanners are setted to the scanner glass, so everything what contacts the glass is going to be sharp. A photograph glued to a cardboard will never contact the glass. For the best quality, someone should get the photos out of the book before scanning. If we have to do this the price will be 50% more, because the preparation time is lenghtened. It will still be the same 50% if the pictures stays in the scrap book and we have to scan them as a page. We scan thousands of pictures a month, the preparation would be longer, just as the finishing time.
You would like to save the extra charge? Get the photos out of the book and bring them in envelopes.
-This way the photos will contact the scanner glass;
-The scanning will be finished sooner.
