I’ve got this plan to scan a load of old family photos. Can anyone recommend a half decent scanner that can handle 1960’s style kodak colour as well as a few older black and white photographs?

I’d always go with an Epson, but then I did work for their Scanner department.

The cheapest one that PC world provide will do what you want but remember to get a decent photo processing software package. See you in redhouse park this week- we could go PC world after -youve got the money!!!Margaret macklin

Ask yourself if you’re also going to want to scan slides at some stage. Some scanners can do them and I think they don’t necessarily cost more.
