Another post, another question: card scanning
One of my preparations for the big move is to scan every non-set card I have in my collections. This includes my awards/leaders collection, type collection, autographs and relics, player collections, non-sport autographs and relics, etc. This is really slow-going. I have somewhere around 5000 cards to scan. I'm only scanning the fronts except for the type collection.
This was a lazy scan.
I'll be heading back to Georgia for about a week, during which time I hope to get through some of my cards. I would like to scan many of those, but if I scan at the same rate that I can do here (about 20 seconds a card from preview, to selection, to final scan, in groups of 9), I'll never finish.
Does anybody have any knowledge of higher-speed scanning? I think if I had a sheet-fed photo scanner I could eliminate the preview and selection parts, and at 200dpi get down to about 5 seconds per card.
