For a long time I've wanted to be able to scan pictures into my computer. It wasn't that I didn't have a scanner--we have a combination printer, fax, scanner. But I kept thinking it would be complicated to install the scanner. It turns out, I just put in the CD and,presto, it was installed.
The hard part was trying to figure out how to get the picture into my blog. I know there has to be a better way, but my scan program lets me click on my e-mail and copy it. So I copied it into my e-mail, and then copied it into my picture file.
So-o-o-o, until I figure out something else, this will work. I do have one little problem. There is a white border around the picture; I can't figure out how to get rid of that, so that all I have is the picture. I guess I'll have to take this one step at a time!
My other picture project was to go through several photo albums and boxes of pictures from my Dad and step-mother's things, and keep only what I thought someone might want. After working on this for several hours, I've gotten rid of all the albums, and the "keepers" are in labeled envelopes to go to the appropriate person or family. I also kept a few of what I considered "vintage" pics, that I just couldn't throw away. One of those is the picture above, which is my Mom and Dad's wedding photo.
Now that I've gone through all the pics, and sort of figured out my scanner, I'm going to the fitness center. I'm feeling the need for a good physical work-out!
