  5. Fujitsu fi-7460 document scanner

    Anyone have any experience with this document scanner. I have the Fujitsu ix500 and love it, but at some point Retromags will need to look into a larger format scanner to assist with the UK magazines and larger format issues like OXM and OPM. With the size that it accepts we could probably feed entire Nintendo Power posters thru this guy without needing to stitch them back together.
  6. The importance of renaming files in a scan

    Yeah I am guilty of this. When I start to scan a new magazine I usually set the page names right in the scanning software (Epson/Fujitsu). However lately I have been leaving it at a generic "scanned_image" placeholder because I like to do the renaming after everything has been scanned. Once I have all the pages scanned I can go to the last numbered page and see what the file name is and compare that against the page number. Some magazines will not count the cover as a page number, others wont count the cover or the inside of the cover, so you end up having to name the cover "egm_issue_064_000a.jpg" and "egm_issue_064_000b.jpg". If you are going to rename pages after they have been scanned, I recommend Ant Renamer!

    He did comment to Jason of Archive back in June, so its only been 16 weeks since we last heard from him. Who knows, he could pop up tomorrow and drop out 100 magazines as a surprise.

    Actually I may still have the Dreamcast magazines on hand, its been so long, but I did send him two boxes of magazines with the remainder of the images above. I don't think Marktrade ran off with the magazines, and I still hold out hope for a flash drive full of scanned pages to show up in my mailbox one afternoon

    This is everything I sent Marktrade, not sure what he scanned so far. A few months after sending these off Mark stopped uploading items to Retromags and started to just dump his scans onto Archive.

    Fair enough, at the moment I will just hide the User Download links from being populated. I only included Archive because that was where Marktrade was placing his items and he was linking to Archive for them. I will still move forward on linking to active publishers that we can still subscribe to with either physical or digital versions. What is still active, maybe 15 different magazines between the USA and UK at the moment....if that?
