08 December 2002 — Canon LiDE 30

I bought a new scanner yesterday to replace my rapidly dying old scanner. Here are some test scans.

My nephews Alex and Michael

My grouchy nephew Michael and his toy truck

The Canon LiDE 30 is a great little USB scanner, light-weight and efficient. After downloading the OS X drivers from the Canon web site, it works like a charm under Jaguar.

Scanning these pictures helped me learn a couple of handy techniques in Photoshop Elements, too, such as despeckle and dust/scratch-removal.
