I finally got around to installing my scanner which I bought almost a full year ago, but never unpacked it until today. It’s actually a nice Epson Perfection 2400 Photo that I picked up at Costco. I was motivated by a stack of old photos my grandmother gave me as she was going through some old boxes. So I fired it up and am impressed with how fast and sharp the pictures are. I also decided to install Photoshop 7, just to make sure everything was compatible. My computer did warn me that my USB port is hopelessly outdated (read: 1.1 not 2.0) and that my performance will be hindered (read: everything comes over slower).
Not sure how many photos I will post. I have for some time wanted to document at least one picture for every year of my life. I know post-1994 will be a snap, and the hard part will be dating some of the 1970’s photos since not everyone has dated them consistently. I’ll just add that to the list of projects to work on with all my free time.
