Re: filmscanners: Archiving Photos



Hi, Larry--

You've crammed a lot of scanning and learning into that 3 years, Larry. :-)

Yes, I might, too (although I had over 5000 files). That was the 
"cautionary" point I was making--I've always been a little "nervous" about 
the smaller files. But the CD photo albums were quite well recieved, and as 
you said, I'm the only one who knows there's a little something wrong with a 
few pictures (or why). :-)

JPEG compressions *are* retouchable, it's just that you don't get the 
results you would if you retouched from a higher-res, less compressed file 
(nor as quickly).

Best regards--LRA
