OK - I am buying an iMac next week. (Top end 27" model) I have a project I want to work on over the next while. I have several thousand pictures I want to archive. They are family photos which go back to over 100 years ago. Most of them are 1970s onwards but quite a lot of earlier stuff. I have a mixture of prints (in various states of repair) as well as 35mm and 120 films. What I want to do is restore these photos as well as I can. I want to scan, remove cracks, tears etc and also restore faded colours. I want these photos to be achievable at the highest quality. What software do I need and what hardware do I need? I currently have a Samsung SCX-4825FN multifunction device. I have come to the conclusion the scanner on this will not be up to the task. I have considered buying a dedicated film scanner and have looked at this. I have also considered buying a specialist flatbed for the prints that have no negatives (and for the 120s) Software wise I have been considering Aperture. Will that do everything I need and is it the best bet? I have zero experience in this type of work. I am pretty IT savvy so I am happy to learn how to do things.
