Reply To: scanner for digitizing photo album

Another solution would be to get a FlipPal scanner (, as long as the individual photographs are no larger than 4″x6″.  Because you can turn the scanner upside down and use it directly on the photos, it shouldn’t damage the album.  I haven’t had a problem with reflection on anything I’ve scanned so far.  The maximum resolution is 600 dpi, if that’s high enough.  I would probably also use a camera to take reference photographs of the whole pages as well, as suggested.
