  • Scanner for Christmas

    My gf wants a nice scanner for doing photo scanning, restoring, and printing. She currently has an epson photo printer that seems to do a nice job printing photo's taken on her digital camera, but the hp scanner that she currently has, doesn't do a good job. I am looking to purchase a scanner for her for Christmas and has narrowed it down to an Epson 1670P Photoscanner or an Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Scanner. She uses photoshop for doing her photo work, and has been using this product for both home, school and work for over 4 years (using version 6 now i believe).I am trying to find reviews on the web about these scanners but am unable to get a good idea of which is better or of another brand that is as good or better. I am looking for some imput on how the scanners are and maybe something that is in this price range of both of these scanners but maybe by another manufacturer. She likes to scan film and photo's. Any help would be appriciated.

      I'm considering the purchase of a scanner for use in restoring old photographs. This is going to be a hobby / small sideline initially so I can only justify a relatively small amount of money. Ideally I'd be looking to spend under £150.

      I've seen the Epson Perfection v350 and HP ScanJet...

      Scanner Recommendations????
      by cducasse
      I have grasped most of the techniques for photo restoration. I am going to be doing it on the side for extra money as jobs come in. However, I am wondering what scanners you all are using, and which one would be the best. I am interested in the scan format output...Adobe RAW, JPG, EPS (preferred)....

      Does anyone have any recommendations of a good flatbed photo scanner that can do 16bit as well a laser color printer that you could recommend? Preferrably I would like one that has both in one but can't seem to find one. I also don't really have a lot of knowledge in this area so any help is appreciated....

      Hi all, I'm new to the fourm and to retouching. I need to buy a scanner and saw a good deal for the Epson Perfection 4180. The specs say it has 4800 x9600 dpi. Is that over kill for a novice? Thanks, Carl
