i've never used a scanner before (i know). since i'm married to an artist, and sometimes aspire to be one myself, it's a big deal to have one hooked up to the computer, install the drivers, and figure it out.
first scan: a coaster that was handy.
second: a poem by ursula leguin which i copied at the library today.
my brother told me to try gimp as an alternative to photoshop. i used it to play with the original scan.
