Question by Marco Meerman: What scanner should i use to scan 1000 A6 photo’s?
I want to scan A6 photo’s to my computer to create a digital database. I have been searching for a A6 scanner (or A4 + A6) that can scan 5, 10 photo’s or more at once (like a document feeder).

Step 3: Clean the scanner Using isopropyl, or another cleaning agent that won’t leave residue or streaks, and a lint-free cloth, wipe any dust, smudges, and fingerprints off the scanner’s glass bed. Turn on the scanner’s light to reveal any overlooked smudges, fingerprints, or dirt. Step 4: Select your DPI based on your image use For images you intend to print, a DPI (or dots per inch) of 300 is recommended. Slides or negatives need a DPI of at least 2400. For use on the Web, a DPI of 72 is acceptable. Step 5: Scan your old photos Using the software that came with your scanner, scan each photo into your computer.
