Photo Scanner

Today, there are many printers that come with a scanner function included in their list of functions. A photo scanner can be a handy feature to have on your printer and it is a great way to get your old photos onto your computer for safe keeping.

Most of the time you can simply buy an all in one printer that will allow you to scan your photos onto your computer so that you can retouch them, store them and send them over the Internet to your friends and family.

To buy your photo scanner there are a few things that you should look for to make sure that you buy the best one for your needs. Choosing a photo scanner that is a part of a printer is a great way to save space in your home office by only having one piece of equipment instead of two separate machines.

Your photo scanner can also be used to scan documents onto your computer for safe storage as well. This is a great tool to have for your home business in the event you have to sign and email back a document to someone. Simply print the document, add your signature and scan it back onto your computer for emailing back to your business contact. This is a fabulous way to avoid using a fax machine and minimize the amount of equipment you need as well as the paper that you are using in your office. Simply email your documents back and forth and only print and scan the ones that must be altered with a signature.

There are also large format flatbed scanners that you can use in your office if you have larger size documents that must be scanned. When choosing the photo scanner, you should make sure that you pick a scanner that is large enough to scan the large size documents that you need. Also, be sure that you have a large enough table to accommodate the large photo scanner.

There are some professional brands of the large format flatbed photo scanner that are generally intended for professional use and are not the most affordable scanner for typical home use. For most home use, the smaller flatbed photo scanner is generally adequate.

For those who plan to buy a printer and photo scanner all in one machine, make sure that you check out the printing features of the machine as well.
