I have really enjoyed seeing the photos posted on Facebook by my old high school friends. Since I performed in a vocal jazz and show choir group, I've been 'tagged' in lots of photo scans recently. This lead me to remember the photos I have from our group's performances, trips, competitions, and parties.
So I decided to get the photos out and scan them for posting on Facebook. But I hadn't really used the scanner function of my 4-in-1 unit, so I hoped it would be simple and intuitive.
Well, the scanning part was easy. Unfortunately, the raw scans look like someone took a photo of the photo on top of the scanner. The photo sits in the corner with a bunch of blank area around it, like this:So, I've been experimenting with the photo editing software to try and enlarge the images and crop off all the blank white area. I think I've got that part figured out, but now I'm wondering how do I 'find' these edited photos? They're not in the "My Pictures" section of my computer, which would have been intuitive. I suppose once I find them I can move them to "My Pictures" where they belong.
If anyone has any handy scanning, editing, or moving tips for me that would be great!
