I'm planning to scan all my family photos (~200)and digitize all of it this weekend using Canon imageCLASS MF3240
I'm wondering what's best way to accomplish this task.
What software should I use? I've been using Windows XP scanning wizard and I don't like.
What resolution should I store the photos? As high as possible?
What file format should I store the photos as? JPEG or something else?
Is there way to scan multiple pictures at same time and crop them up later?
Finally, what's the best way to share and store the pictures online for long term storage? Picasa, Flickr or something else?
