What is an efficient way to scan or get older media typically on 4x6 into iPhoto? I have a bunch of pictures in photo albums that I want to get into iPhoto. I just scanned a bunch using my Canon MX860 all in one. It was a pain. For this task I am making a DVD for my father in law birthday. It would have been easier if they are in iPhoto. On a related task, my mother has boxes and boxes of slides. We need to preserve those too. Is it good enough to just scan from the picture ? or should I try to find the negatives? What are reasonable settings for scanning pictures, 300 DPI? Any help will be appreciated.
