I got it!!!

I got my Flip Pal portable scanner!

For those of you who have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about... here is a link to my original post about the Flip Pal.

What a cute little thing and so amazingly accurate. I thought I'd test it out first thing this morning on a huge old bible cover. Remember now.. the beauty of this little guy is no matter how big the image is it can stitch it together.

I scanned this old bible cover in 9 passes (yes.. huge) to test out the stitching capability of the scanner and here is the result:
I've left the image large enough so you can click on it to see it larger. Can you see any indication at all that the image was stitched from 9 separate images?

Now... one thing you have to remember is to be sure to overlap with each pass. As you can see by the small black patch on the bottom, I missed that overlap... so that was my fault. I could have gone back and done it again but I think you should see what happens so you can avoid it.

Pretty cool huh? Now I can scan anything/everything no matter where I go and it's all on one tiny chip ready to be read/stitched.

Sounds like I own stock in the company doesn't it? No, I have no financial interest in the company. The woman who did the demo for me last month is trying to raise enough credit with the company to get one for the Historical Society so they can scan old pics and documents for the society.

'Nuff said... I love it!

Have a great autumn day!

Best... Canace

You sold me.... I followed the links and placed an order for one. I have needed a scanner for ages anyway, and this sounds like a great tool!! Hope we both enjoy them.

Love your pic of the Old Bible. If I can . May I use the pic of your Bible for a cover of a book I am about to publish. Its Called the Sevens Pattern, of the 66 books of the Bible.
Hope to hear from you.
