New Scanner!

So my dad and I got a new scanner. This scanner will scan photos but will also scan old slides and old negatives. Well, we did a test run and I have to admit that I am more than thrilled to how the slides turned out.

This was a slide and we scanned it without the dust cleanup and the color restoration. I wasn't disappointed in this at all and would be happy just to have this lost photo of my Grandpa Papoo (taken back in the late 70's/early 80's).

Here is the same slide scanned again only this time we choose the dust cleanup and the color restoration.
I am very happy how this turned out. The colors are sharp and the photo looks like it was just taken days ago instead of decades!

The slides took about a minute each to scan. The software and hardware of this scanner is incredibly easy to use and I cannot wait to find a ton of old "lost" photos. We couldn't find any film negatives to try out so I will have to find when I get home.

I am not sure if I will use the color restoration on all of them though. I do like how some of the old photos look aged. I will probably do that on a picture by picture basis.
