Perfect possible, Robin.

Do you have a scanner and any scanning software at the moment?  And if
so, what do you have?

And of course, what operating system have you got on your PC?

Subject: [BCAB] Help with transferring print photo images to digital

Hi Fellow Listers

I hope this question does not reveal too much of my IT ignorance but
thought I'd risk it anyway, seeing how helpful everyone is to the less
competent amongst us!

As I steadily increase my IT skills I have managed, with sighted help,
to open a Facebook account and place some images into it. My wish is
to re establish contact with long lost friends and colleagues.

I only have a few digital images but do have a good collection of
other print images and would like to include some of these in my
Facebook account as well if at all possible.

Is it possible to scan such prints, both black and white and colour,
and then convert them into digital files for this purpose?
Unfortunately I do not have the negatives for any of these photos,
just good quality prints.

I use a laptop with JAWS 12 and Windows 7 and have a B/W printer which
can also scan.

Kind regards
