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?
