marlene: When I have flat photos, I have no choice but to scan them on the flatbed. But I don't really have to do any more cleanup on flatbed scans than I do on slide scans.
If you are really careful with the slide and have a cleaning brush, you do have a chance to have a relatively clean scan but I can't say that is true for photos--they always need cleanup as photos generally aren't handled with too much care...

>>I've been using VueScan for both scanners, which gives me better results than the software than came with the flatbed and slide scanners.

Oh...I love Vuescan...I use it exclusively with my slide scanner but very, very rarely if ever with my flatbed...not sure why...

>>I am also curious to see how the 75-cent scans turn out.

I can't imagine they will be any good...
