Sandy, you are absolutely right, only contact PRINTS. This is not a bother (the price is) because I am interested in a scanner for 12x20 contact prints. I have a friend who lives in HK and he is going to check the same kind of scanner (i.e. A2 flatbed) and price - I would not be surprised if something similar is available in Asia.
Mrcallow, the link I attached in a previous page is for a very expensive flatbed scanner that can take as much as a 16x20 print I believe - even 20x24 I think. Pretty impressive but way too much money for simply putting prints up on my site and APUG easily and more faithfully. At least we know they are available and will no doubt tumble in price in the near future.
