I hate scanning photos… it takes so long to suck up an image at high-quality. However the alternative is letting the print fade and die a slow death. Are you in the same boat? Here’s a lazy way to scan faster.

Step 1 Put as many images on your scanner bed that will fit. Just make sure that you have a small gap between the images.

Step 2 Scan the images to a high-res file.

Step 3 Open the file in Adobe Photoshop.

Step 4 Choose File>Automate> Crop & Straighten. Each photo will be detected and moved into it’s own document (cropping the borders and straightening files).

Step 5 Rotate and files 90? as needed (Image > Image Rotation > 90? CW or 90? CCW).

Step 6 Save each file and touch up as needed..

Isn’t being lazy great?
