If there is one thing I hate about dig­i­tal image manip­u­la­tion it is scan­ning in pho­tos. Specif­i­cal­ly it is scan­ning pho­tos on a dirty scan­ner bed.

I should qual­i­fy this post by say­ing that my scan­ner bed is not inher­ent­ly filthy and grimy. How­ev­er, it attracts dust par­ti­cles like my stom­ach attracts fried chick­en. I end up spend­ing ten min­utes try­ing to clean up pho­tos after they have been scanned in.

I try to clean the scan­ner bed as often as I can, but as soon as I open up the cov­er, dust par­ti­cles drop down like atom­ic bombs on the bed.

How do oth­er flatbed scan­ner users over­come this annoy­ance?
