I still listen to my vinyl!It looks like there is some dirt on the scanner glass - perhaps on the inside?Can you scan at a higher resolution? That may help to avoid digital errors. Are they matt or gloss finish photos? You may find it's actually quicker and easier to set up some lights and a tripod and photograph your pictures - may well be quicker than a scanner.
If the dust pattern on the images is consistent on different photos, (try superimposing them), then the dust is on the scanner glass, (perhaps the underside).BTW a thumbnail of the full image is included in the dusty enlarged section you posted ...[attachment=11226] [ pixelated by me ]
Please explain further how the full image appeared ??...it can not be so..I uploaded just a cut out !!!..*puzzled*...thanks for pixelating !Unfortunately the dust pattern is not consistent......
...but how did you access the full picture ?
....the photos seem so clean before placing on the scanner.....but..i guess the scanner can see more than I can........ok...I'll wipe and see if it gets better rather than investing in a blowy thingy !
I shall now remove metatdata from images I use from now on
I think it has to do with the static electricity Neil. Try to degauss it. The scanner and possibly the photo too. It's EM-'dust' that disturbs the scanning I guess(Isn't 'degauss' the proper word here?)==Just don't ask me how to do such a thing. I know you British did it with whole warships under ww2, so one little scanner shouldn't be too much trouble, should it?
