Default Re: Pictures and computer scanning/transfering

Pluck, the problem with scanning out of a book is that the photos in most Model A books, and newspapers, are done in a process known as "halftone." You can do a wiki lookup on that, but basically it's a photo represented as a collection of dots on the page. If you take a magnifying glass to a photo in "Henry's Lady" you will see those dots. When you do a scan on those photos you will usually get a grainy look caused by the dots.

Your best bet is to find a real photo of the car you need for your use in a document, especially if you intend to print it.
