I would not recommend taking digital photos of prints over scanning them. If you get a scanner (or a digicam, I believe, though I do not have one myself) it should come with software to process the scans, though not necessarily to manipulate the photos. Be aware that some 'business/office' scanners (i.e. those not specifically designed for photos) may have very little control when it comes to things like adjusting dpi etc. But as Dave mentions above, I suspect that this thread will be closed shortly, as this topic is a bit off-topic
