Recently, more and more people are quite interested and keen to know about Digital Photography. I have actually received so many messages in the form of e-mails all geared towards knowing how to edit digital photography. There are a handful of people who are very upset when they see gigantic photos and others that are wrongly scanned.
These problems range from sizing to how to actually add text bubbles, also there is the problem of how to create an oil painting with the help of digital photographs. The following is going to explain the difficulties that are caused by scanners and the possible ways to remedy the situation.
Due to the improvement in technology, a number scanners have been made that are very difficult to manipulate, some even refuse to scan, while others usually come up with half the picture still missing, thus ruining the entire picture altogether. It should be noted that if a scanner is not properly configured and every setting well arranged, then the resolution is bound to produce grainy pictures. This is going to help you use your scanner in just the right way;
1 Firstly, when you want to scan a picture, you should endeavor to make sure that no dirt is found in the photo. If this is avoided, they quickly show in the picture just after it is scanned. In cases of dirt, try to clean it gently and softly too, so as to avoid scratching the picture all the same.
2 Also, the scanner has to be in great shape that is very clean. You have just cleaned your photo properly so you don’t want to mess them up again with your print, so in this light, both the printer and the photo need to be as clean as possible.
3 In most scanners, you will find the different options and choices like that of color copying or probably black or white copying. So if don’t actually want a black or white scan then you can opt for color scan.
4 With digital photos, it is possible to either become too large or small on your computer, making it very difficult for it to be edited when you are done scanning. This can be arranged by quickly setting the resolution to make the picture look good and lovely with everything that you have ever wanted to feature in the photo.
5 Always endeavor to hit the preview button to actually know what you are about to scan. It is of utmost importance to carefully place your photo on the scanner. The preview option will enable you to see the picture so that you don’t rescan it later.
6 Usually, there are some people who crop the image during scanner. This is however not good as if you avoid cropping only the picture will be found in it. You can possibly crop the photo later to meet your desired need.
7 While you are scanning your photo, it is not advisable to remove the photo or probably disrupt the scan, if you need to make any changes, then it should be done on the computer.
8 After uploading the image to your computer, now is the time to check the size of the image to make sure that you don’t mess up the resolution settings while scanning. In cases of the image being too large, it might crash an older computer, but usually, it needs to be gigantic to be able to do that.
9 It is good to have a scan of the original image. This does not take too much time to do, but if the resolution is very high then it might take much time.
These tips are capable of helping you with your scanner to produce wonderful images.
