Digitizing Large Images


A potential client has an 18 x 14 image that has some water damage. My Epson 4490Photo isn't going to fit the photo on the bed. Should I try to scan the image in quarters and then put them together, or search around locally for someone with a larger scanner and outsource that part of the job? Thanks!

Or should I shoot the image with my Rebel xti?

Try both - what have you got to lose.
