Forum: Scanning and Digitising

  1. Question Scanning photos on textured paper

    I have a batch of family wedding photos which are printed on a textured paper (a sort of canvas-like texture). When I scan these, the tiny indentations really bounce the light out and it looks like it's snowing! I have tried scanning at different resolutions, but the problem remains. It's not to...

  3. Backing up my "My Heritage" research on disc.

    I am going to try to back up my research project on My Heritage to a disc as it is only on my laptop at present and I don't want to lose it. Has anyone used My Heritage and managed to transfer the files to a disc? I hope this is the right forum for this thread.

  6. Photo editing from video still shots

    My sister sent me video CD's of family films and I have been able to capture some 30 images of still shots. The film quality is poor and the images are quite blurry. My question is : 1. Should I try and recapture the images again (requires 4 hrs of viewing)? and 2. How do I make the pics more...

  9. Question Old Maps

    Hello everyone I want to get old maps into my tree. What type of scanner or camera would libraries allow you to use? My hunch is they would be more tolereant of a "column by column" PORTABLE scanner that fits in one's pocket and can be moved over a stationary document Any ideas? John

    Hi all I would like to post an extract of an old document into a post so that I could ask for help with the handwriting. Previously I've managed to post photos using photobucket, but this extract isn't exactly a photo - the document is a will from TNA and was made available for my download...

  11. Microfiche Scanning - 35mm film scanner

    Hi Everyone I really struggle to get time on the fiche readers in my library and anyway they make me feel sick so I have tended to avoid buying fiche which is very limiting. So I HAD to find an alternative. The OHP didn't work (!) so I am now using a 35mm film/negative scanner and I am...

  13. Microfiche Scanning

    I've been trying to find a way to get my family history fiche onto CD for ages. The film scanners available from computer shops don't do the job, and the professional scanners I could find cost thousands of pounds. After much searching I managed to find a company in the UK that did the job for...

    A few years ago I bought this scanner with the bold purpose of digitising the hundreds of slides and over a thousand negs from days gone by. Well of course the task became too time consuming and was placed on the backburner. I have now decided to resurrect the task but in the meantime I bought a...
