  • How to choose a scanner?

    Hello guys,

    Does anybody use scanner for their drawings or illustrations here?
    I'm looking for a scanner to buy for very detailed pencil drawing scans. I attached an example here what kind of quality i need.
    Could you recommend something or share your experience?
    Thank you.

      There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

        I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

          I agree, the Canoscan is a good scanner -- especially for the price. I've bought a couple of Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanners for work, and would do so again if they're still made. They've been very reliable and produce high-quality scans. Unfortunately they're several hundred dollars more than the Canoscan.

              sorry to say, I don't think that you know Photoshop pretty well. Because this type of design can be made through Photoshop. Beside this you can google it and can find any other software you like.

              I don't think there is a one-size-fits-all answer to your question. It depends on the company, its culture, the marketing person, the designer and the project at hand.

              Well the work would be work I did. For example lets say I designed someone's logo, poster or website and they want me to take it down.
