- Handheld scanners are most appropriate for small originals that are no bigger than the scanner itself. In theory, most hand scanners allow you to scan a large original in more than one pass and "stitch" the scans together into a final image, but this is not a preferable scanning method.
- Almost anything that speeds up scanning photos (other than buying a faster scanner) lowers the scan quality, so decide the level of quality you want, and then accept the amount of work that comes with it.
- Use the gray scale or line art option when you scan black and white images.
- Evaluating the resolution of a scanner is easy - higher is always better.
