"Scan YOUR Art "- A new e-Book by Mindy Lighthipe

It has taken me almost 3 weeks to get this e-book, "Scan Your Art" together. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I decided to start writing it. It might have been easier for me to do as a video. In the future I will look into what it would take to capture the process live on the screen and in motion. After 3 weeks of writing, taking screen shots, editing etc…..I printed out the book to read the 17 page document. It took me about 20 minutes to read it and only about 10 minutes to go through the whole process of scanning. I have been scanning my work for over 10 years and this is the first time I actually documented what I do in a step by step progression. This eBook, "Scan YOUR Art" is for Artists as well as Photographers who want to create printed reproductions using Photoshop Elements by scanning. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Scanner Settings
  • Photomerge "Stitching Large Images Together"
  • Rotating & Straightening Your Art

Thanks Mindy … what a great option for learning .. and much needed information.  Especially for botanical artists!
Much appreciated, look forward to receiving.

Hi Mindy,
Will PhotoShop Elements work with this? Love your work! 

Mindy October 8, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Hi Suzie,
YES! This tutorial is written for Photoshop Elements. I find that so many people do not have the funds for the full Photoshop version….. actually for our purposes it is a bit over kill. I recommend that people purchase Photoshop Elements as it works great and is 1/7th the price!!!! If you decide to buy the tutorial I hope that you find it helpful.
Best wishes for success,
