When was the last time you used a scanner? No, not the kind that prices your Oreos or peruses your carry-on bag. I’m talking about the kind of scanner that turns pictures into pixels and doubles as a photocopier and business machine.
Although photography is decidedly digital these days, the desktop scanner still has its place. You might have old photographic prints, negatives, or slides that yearn to be seen and shared along with their digital descendants. You might shoot film when you want that analog look. You might have logos and other line art that need to end up in illustrations or page layouts.
These are just a few of the reasons why we’re working on some courses covering scanners and the scanning topics that matter in today’s world.
And it’s why we’d appreciate your help.
Below you’ll find a poll containing a list of working titles for a scanning course. Which name do you like best?
If you have an extra moment, we’d love your comments regarding scanners in general. Is yours dusty and disused? Is it an essential part of your digital life? Or does it fall somewhere in between, in that I-use-it-now-and-then neighborhood?
Most important, what would you like to see in a modern scanning course? What scanning concepts, topics, projects are important to you?
