I have a new toy. I bought it in preparation for our genealogy research trip this Fall. The Flip Pal is a small portable scanner that I can take to libraries, archives, and relatives homes who are reluctant to allow their pictures to be taken somewhere else to be scanned. The Flip Pal runs on batteries, saves scans to a memory card so you don't have to have a computer with it. The scan surface is small so if the picture is larger than 4x6, it takes several scans to get the complete picture. It has software on the memory card to stitch the scans together to put the picture back together. I haven't tried that yet, but I will soon. It will scan at 300 dpi and 600 dpi.
These are pictures that I scanned with it. I put them together with PhotoShop and then saved for the web to save download time. The right side is the back of the photograph.
