Do you have a scanner? I don’t either. And every now and then someone say ‘scan it and send it back to me.’ Really? Scan something? Crap.
Instead of scanning, I just take a picture of my documents. It’s pretty much the same thing, without the hassle of purchasing and hooking up a scanner.
I just put the papers on my desk, hold the camera over the documents and snap a photo. Document digitization complete.
It’s really handy when you only have to scan once in a while and don’t need super high quality scans. Most digital cameras can take good enough pictures so you don’t have to spend the money on a scanner.
