For a limited time, the Central Library will be a test site for the Kodak Picture Saver Scanning System in the Arts Division . Library patrons will have free access to this high-speed system and discover how easy it is to scan photos and documents and store them as digital images on a flash drive.
Here’s how it works-
- Gather up your photo memories or documents
- Bring them to the Arts Division (2nd Floor, Bausch & Lomb Building,) along with your own flash drive and start scanning. No flash drive? No problem! First forty patrons to use the system and fill out an online survey will receive a free flash drive compliments of Kodak. After that, prospective users may purchase flash drives at the Circulation Desk or in the Library Store.
- The Kodak Picture Saver Scanning system is easy to use! Auto-feed pictures, printed memories, documents and more from wallet size up to 34 inches long. The system automatically removes red eye, sharpens images, improves color and more.
Q: What type of storage device do I use to store my photos and documents?
A: Patrons must use a USB flash drive to store and save photos and documents.
Q: How many pictures will 2 GB flash drive hold?
A: There is no real answer, as it will depend on the size of the photographs. You can save them in different formats, or scale them to different sizes, so different ones will take up different amounts of storage.
Q: What are some of the ways I can manipulate my photos using the scanner?
A: KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology provides advanced image enhancement tools to perform image retouch; red-eye enhancement; image sharpening and red-eye removal.
Q: Can photographs and documents be scanned directly from a book?
A: No, the Kodak Scanner that is being used at the library does not have a flatbed scanning surface.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The best part about being a beta test site for the scanner…it’s free! Someone from our staff will be happy to assist you.
Q: How can I find out more about this exciting service?
A: For more information, call 428-8140.
