Thanksgiving and family photographs go together like mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s coming up on Thanksgiving again (in America), so it’s time to 1) reflect upon your life to give thanks and 2) eat as much as you possibly can. If you’re exceptionally fortunate, some time this weekend you may perhaps acquire some family photographs you’ve never seen before.
If you do do your own scanning, scan at a minimum of 300 ppi (pixels per inch) and preferably 600 ppi.
Choose the tiff format and label the scan sequentially. Store your masters together in one location on your computer.
