I wrote last week about my desire to scan my Grandma’s extensive photo collection, to hopefully give our whole family a lasting archive of her work. The scanner I chose from Amazon (Epson Perfection V550) has arrived, and it’s a big old beast. The results are pretty impressive though, I pulled this photo out from my memory box and gave it a whirl, I’ve not touched it up with Photoshop.

The most impressive thing about the Epson Perfection V550 is the fact it can scan Negatives and Slides, I did notice Grandma did have some negatives knocking around, so having this function will be handy. I knew I had some negatives sitting in my memory box, they’d not been looked after at all and I was expecting them to look a mess. I loaded them into the Epson Perfection V550’s holder and expected the worst.




I was wrong – they looked FAB! I *love* this picture of my sister.

It needs some Photoshopping, but considering the age and state of the negatives, I’m gobsmacked, below are a few photos from the same strip, probably taken when I was 2ish. All untouched and as the scanner reproduced them, I’m over the moon..

I just need to get myself a longer USB cable and get the settings just right, and then it’ll be time to start the massive task of scanning Grandma’s collection!
