So this morning I timed how long it takes to scan slides.
Our HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One can scan 4 slides at a time. It takes 6 minutes to do this. And that's if everything goes right. This darn machine has scanned the wrong location, skipped slides all together, only scanned a sliver of the outside - ugh! Plus, that 6 minutes doesn't include the time it takes to rename those slides once they're scanned...
I just keep telling myself that it is all worth it because now the slides will be on the computer, I will be able to share them, and they will be much more visible! It is worth it!
And it. is. exhausting.
These slides are all from 1981:
|I saw Santa at the Moose Lodge Christmas Party. Can we all just take a moment to admire the polyester-awesomeness of the outfit on the woman to the left? The amazing fashion is a great reason to scan in old slides!|
|This is one of those slides that our scanner did not want to scan because it was too dark. I did have to lighten it up a bit, and I'm glad I did. Who wants to have these two cuties stuck in a box? Susana & Marcos Alan, you're looking wonderful!|
