See, it wasn't that hard to admit.
Seriously, my wife makes calendars, web pages, etc. and has a need to get the pictures in digital form. She has a nice digital camera, but that doesn't help her when I take real pictures. We have a decent flatbed but I have never been entirely happy with the results for pictures. When this opportunity came up, I was wondering if it was worth it. I'm going to try it out and will buy it if I'm happy with it.
