Instead of copying a paper document, did you ever put a used cupcake wrapper directly on the glass and then scan it since you didn’t have a camera?
The photo above was taken by my scanner. I think it looks pretty good because I have no standards. But it can be kind of messy.
I won’t be playing with my scanner so much when I learn how to use a new camera. It’s a challenge for me. Because quite frankly, I’d rather just play with the scanner and clean up the mess. I located the ON button today. More news on the camera progress as it develops.
