This topic has certainly brought lots of reaction and my thanks to all.
My intention is to buy a new scanner which I want to use for scanning
photographs prior to carrying out restoration work. I use Ubuntu 8.10,
GIMP and XSane.
The book I have says that I should look for a scanner that captures at
least 10 bits of data and has an optical resolution of 600 pixels per
inch. I don't have lots of money and this interest in restoration is
just as a hobby and not a business. So, could some kind person guide me
in the right direction, please.
