Scanner Recommendations
Just bought a new HP wireless all-in-one and all of my scans of cards in screw downs come out blurry. No screw down, no problem. Tried an Epson all-in-one as well but got the same problem. Anyone know of a wireless all-in-one that will scan cards well when they are in screw downs? Thanks for your help.

RE: Scanner Recommendations
Stick something a little heavy on the lid when you scan them.
Screw downs make the lid come up which in turn messes up the scan.
Most scanners are not built to account for this.

The trick is which sensor technology the scanner uses, either CIS or CCD. CIS is a newer, lower-costing technology but it's not too good at scanning objects with depth (like graded cards).

Here's an example of an all-in-one on the left, and my dedicated Epson scanner on the right.

After scanning, upload the photo to Instagram or Picasa. They make the picture look perfect. Also, when advertising, the dimensions of your photo are very important. The width x length for "large" web pics should be 640x480 and "small" website dimensions are 448 x 336.
