I have to share with you my excitement... My brother very knidly bought me a scanner printer copier for crimbo and I started using the scanner for the first time last night...
Old scan... wouldn't pick up the tone of the paper so I had to change levels to create a background even though as you can see on the next image the paper clearly has a lovely tone.
New scan... the new scanner picks up pencil marks and biro tone really well as well as giving me an acurate colour representation. So much sharper too.
This may not mean much to many people out there but it makes me very happy.
I'm such a nerd!
