My new portable scanner – VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand

I got a new portable scanner today.  I based my decision primarily on Dick Eastman’s recommendation of the VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner in his newsletter,  Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter.  I am surprised how easy and quick it is to set up and simple it is to use.  This picture of my parents is from a very large and cumbersome yearbook from their freshman year in college.  The yearbook itself is very awkward to handle and almost impossible to place on a flatbed scanner.  It took me only a matter of minutes to scan, upload to my computer and add the text notes to the picture.  I think I am going to be using this scanner quite often!
