Re: QSL Card Scanning Solution

What resolution are you scanning them at?  For Web publishing, 100 dpi is 
sufficient, and most flatbed scanners are pretty fast at lower resolutions.
(at least, my Visioneer scanner is...)  Some, like the Visioneer, will also 
allow you to load up the glass with, say, 6 cards, and "select" them to be 
scanned in as 6 separate images.  Very handy feature.......
