I sometimes post details of scans that I did.
Machine: Xerox WorkCentre 5665
Preferences: Contrast and Brightness to high.
Filesize: one job small, one job normal.
Format: both 8,5″ x 11″
Product: One book in two batches, total of 72 scans, file size 2,5mb.
One book in 6 batches, total of 203 scans, file size 5,2mb.
Time: this time I cannot give a precise estimate but let me give you something else.
- It took me 15 minutes to get to the library.
- It took me 45 minutes to look at four books and decide to scan two of them.
- It took me 15 minutes to get back.
- It took me 10 minutes of editing (stitching them together, cutting off black edges, renaming file).
So in all it took me about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
