I’ve been scanning old family photos this weekend. Last time I was in Orleans I took a couple of photo albums home. The albums have lost their adhesive and the photos are jumbled up. I bought some photo-archive boxes and clear plastic sleeves and I’m taking them from the jumble, scanning and then putting them in individual sleeves and into the box. It’s way more labor intensive than I imagined.
The scanning process takes too long to sit with each individual photo. But there are a couple of menus to click through and no step takes long enough that you can turn away and accomplish something else. I’ve gone through 3 pages so far. Only about 16 more to go.
