How to scan a photo

Photoshop tutorial

Step 1: Open the scanner lid

Step 2: Make sure that scanner glass and obverse surface of photo are pure (has no specks of dust, hairs, etc.). If necessary wipe the surfaces a pure dry serviette without pile.

Step 3: Place photo that you want to scan face-down on the scanner glass.

Step 4: Make sure that the photo is parallel to the scanner border. Close the lid.

Step 5: Scan photo in maximum optical resolution (at least 300 dpi) in color mode (16-bit per chanel), save it as 16-bit TIFF. If scanned photo was black-and-white you can choose better color chanel.

Films/slides scanning

If you need to scan a films/slides you have two ways:

- to use flatbed scanner with film-holder. It's cheap but don't give highest quality.

- to use professional film/slide-scanner that give highest quality. You can buy it (but it's expensive) or order scanning in photo laboratory.
