This one here I had to scan it twice, so that you fine folks who care to view them, dont have to read it sideways.

JJoe- there should be an option to turn the scan clockwise or counter-clockwise before you save it..little arrows or something..then you don't have to scan 2x..
I found that out after I'd scanned lots of things for Florian that he has here at "Char's Vault"..
lol

Yes I know Char and that's exactly what Im doing. You see I scan the entire page from my photo albums, because there are some articles that I cant remove without damaging them. And I can only place the photo album pages one way on the glass scanner. So I scan some twice that have articles positioned in 2 directions on the same page. And then I click either right, left or 180 degrees. I hope you understand what Im trying to say here...

Thanks JJ for the scans-they also answered my "speech impediment" question on another post.

FYI for less experienced computer users who are viewing the articles, if you hold down the "CTRL" button and hit the + or - buttons, the browser will zoom in or out, allowing you a closer look. Or if your mouse has a dial built in you can use that instead of the + or -.

Thanks Next Saturday,

I always have to double right click my mouse, in order for those scans to be readable. But I didn't know about the "CTRL" button and hit the + or - buttons.

I tried it and you can bring the image very close and way far, but I find it's not as sharp as only clicking the mouse twice. May be only me though ?

But it's something new for me, thanks again for sharing this.

Nice to see the newspaper clippings. I'm not one to save newspaper clippings but once like 12-15 years ago, I clipped one about this place in Superior that was planning on making a place for outdoor concerts. I think I still have it stashed away. Later Gordon Lightfoot played there. I don't even know why I clipped it. I might have been having some kind of a premonition. They don't even have concerts there anymore.

I thought the "Relaxing With Lightfoot" article was quite enjoyable. The writer is an obvious fan, and presents his thoughts with a great sense of Canadian pride ("the man is what he is, and he is one of us").

He mentions 'new' songs from Shadows. The only single that got radio play in my parts was "Baby Step Back". How about in Canada ?

That was from Kitchener Ontario, "Centre In The Square." Are they sharp enough to read Ron & Patti ? Those were the older ones they will get better I hope.

Ok.......it's time to admit I'm totally confused........

Jesse Joe, the latest clippings were enlarged and easier to read. With all of your clippings, when I click on them I get a 'magnifying glass' pointer to enlarge them. The last ones start out larger. It's an improvement for my eyes.

On my end, with the "Ctrl + or - ", the forum text enlarges, but not the clippings.

This is the best way I can explain this. If the photo is too large I have to set my resolution at a lower number. They usualy scan at 100, some I have to bring it down to 75 or it wont fit, so it tells me your photo is too large. At 100 it's perfect when you use the magnifying glass 2nd click. Ive been able to use 100 for the latter ones. But the first bunch are all 75. John Fowles would probably explain this better. For me Im not a computer wizard. And this scanning thing to me is very new... I place the photo's to be scanned, and hope for the best. {lol}
