    Hey people

    Im looking for a Auto Feed Photo scanner?

    Have any one heard of one?

    What do you mean by photo scanner? The automatic document feeder of scanners that have them have adjustable guides to accommodate various paper sizes. Scanning software has selectable resolution. If your scanner properly handles your paper stock and accurately captures color at sufficient resolution, then the device does not need to be labeled photo scanner.

    Yer I under stand document scanners. But I need one that up to 1200 dpi . Plus I sort of want one design for photos then it doesn't curl them.

    This is not quite right. The pixel density of a scanner is not nearly so important as the total number of pixels in the scanned image. The gold standard for scanning photographs is the drum scanner. You obviously cannot afford a drum scanner. Consumer-grade photo scanners are designed to scan 3x5 or 5x8 photographs. A document scanner can scan 8x10 photographs. My experience with the scan of 8x10 is most satisfactory. It is a poor craftsman who blames his tools. If you are minimally competent, then the print of your scans will blow the socks off the people who view them.

    My scanner and Vuescan scan does a great job. got a Epson V700. Just wish I don't have to place them haha. Can put 3 in at a time and Scan at 1200 dpi, 48 bits, tiff. Then do all editing in bridge.
