I had a scanner that was well over 5 years old. Technology has advanced quite a bit and I have found that my old scanner was not cutting the mustard. Lots of work, lots of time, and as you can see - the colours were quite limited.
My husband blew me away for Christmas with a replacement. Not only is it more sophisticated and quicker to use, but the true detail and depth of colour on my work is picked up a lot better.
