I think this is the correct area to pose this question, so please forgive me if it isn't.
I have about 3,000 slides that I would like to scan with the best available scanner, depending on price, of course! I was wondering if anyone could help me with some suggestions on which brand and what resolution to get.
Once I have them copied, I shall do my usual Photoshopping of the photo depending on their relevence and what I am going to do with them. There are some that I want as treasured keepsakes, like those of the kids and family etc, and of course others that I would just like to have as mementos rather than a critically recorded image.
Any tips of how to go about it and how to copy them etc would be most appreciated as I am a complete novice at this sort of thing. I am thinking of converting them to TIFFs and dedicating a hard drive or two to that task, but this maybe overkill for the majority andf maybe I should just go jpegs to the not so critical?
