- Measure the smallest size of a photo you want to crop out, then use the scanning guidelines to the right for your scanning resolution
- Scan the scrapbook page and save to a TIFF format. This is your original file to begin extracting your photos from. The file size of your scan will likely be around 50+ megabytes
- At this point you will need some type of photo editing software to extract or crop out each photograph
- Save the resulting separate photo crops to a JPEG format if NO editing is needed, or to a TIFF format if you need to do some editing on them
- Once you have completed the extraction process, save your large sized original file to a JPEG format for archiving
