Hey bcsb experts:
I'm in the process of saving all my important documents on to some sort of digital copy. I've scanned some of them in, but is only a black and white copy and a lousy image at best. (cheap work place copier/scanner)
I've contemplated getting an all in one copier that does colour scans just for this. I don't have a copier at home.
I've also contemplated just taking a high resolution pic of the document itself in JPEG. I'm not well versed in TIFF images so don't go there...
My camera is 3000 x 4000 or 12megapixels. Most all in one printer/scanners are 1200dpi x 4800 dpi.
The only advantage I can see is that with a scanner, I can do optical image/character recognization, and the image is already in PDF form, so I don't have to convert the JPEG to PDF.
With the photo image, I've got better resolution and can adjust the image using basic photo editing software off Windows.
What say you peeps?
