old pictures - none

I just got done scanning pictures from my homecomings and proms with hopes of posting them here today, but I'm noticing these white lines coming through on the scanned photos. I rescan them, but the lines are still there. My conclusion.... I bought a cheap, crappy scanner.

So I'm bummed. I was enjoying going through my photos and deciding which ones I would post. Although, the ones from the dances during my high school years are quite hideous and I don't know why I would want to put them out here in bloggyland for public scrutiny. Hideous, I tell you.

But maybe you'll still get a chance to see them. I'm thinking of going out in the next couple of days and buying a good, flatbed scanner. Does anyone know a good one? And while I'm asking questions, can I ask if anyone does digital scrapbooking? If you do, please let me know. I'd like to ask you a couple of questions.

Hopefully, more pictures to come.

My scanner is part of my HP officejet all-in-one.

Digital scrapbooking is something I'd love to do. The one I've been tempted to start wtih is scrapbookmax.com - I know they offer a free 30 day trial. I've used it and it was fun - but it isn't something I can take on right now.

Let us know what buy and keep those pictures coming!! (this coming from someone who loves to scan and post old photos!)

This is a comment on yesterday and today's blogs.

I love the old pictures! I don't think the prom pictures are hideous at all, but I'm not thrilled with my old pictures!

I like the "reflection" poem.

I've never had much luck with scanners or printers. I finally bought one of the HP all in one...it's not my favorite. The only scrapbooking I have ever done is digital. I love it. Most of the time I do only specific events though, like a vacation or something.

I would love to see old prom pictures!!
