Prints, Album Pages by Automatic Feed up to 8.5"x11" This is the most common way we scan individual prints, using the automatic feeder to gently feed photos through the scanner, scanning one side of the print. With some albums that have a looseleaf organization, the feeder is good enough so that the entire page can be fed through the automatic feeder. The multiple images on a page can then be processed to separate the individual images.
A slight variation on this is to scan both sides of a print so that any annotations on the reverse side can also be captured.
Prints, Album Pages by Manual Feed up to 8.5"x14" Some photo prints cannot be fed through the automatic feeder mechanism. This is typically true with older photos that are attached to stiff backings or photos that need to be scanned without taking them out of their frames. For this situation, we have to use a scanner that we feed manually and is limited to photos that are no larger than 8.5"x14".
Prints, Album Pages by Manual Feed up to 11"x17" For images greater than 8.5"x14", we have another flatbed scanner than can scan up to A3 size (11"x17").
Although this is the largest size we can handle with one scan, we can also make multiple scans over parts of a document and combine the multiple scanned image into one composite image that is larger than 11"x17".
