Skylar from Cooper City, FL
Epson Printer / Scanner

Skylar is doing a scanning project with thousands of photos to digitize them for the family. Leo says that the Epson Fast Foto wireless scanner is ideal for it. It has a sheet feeder that can feed each photograph into the scanner and digitize them quickly. It also has software for color correcting. But it's not cheap. But you pay for the speed. Or you can use an easel and a DSLR and shoot them that way. What resolution should he scan at? Chris Marquardt says 300 DPI is good for most photos unless you plan on blowing up the image, then 1200.
