Scanning from Prints...How would you do it?
To make an extremely long and painful story quite short, I've suffered massive data loss. Many photos are gone forever and I'm now left trying to pick up the pieces. I really don't want to get into how that all happened, so if you would, please do not question me on it.
Right now I'm focused on solutions. Thankfully, some of my most valued photos were actually printed and framed, so I *do* have a copy of them. However, I'm curious as to how I should go about digitizing them. A heavy majority of them are larger than an 8 x 10 in size, so I can't use any scanner "off the shelf" so to speak...
Where would you go to have the absolutely highest-quality scan of your photos, if you found yourself in a similar situation? (Assuming that money is no object.)
Nothing can replace the lost originals, but I'm trying to get as close as I possibly can.
