Tips to avoid glare:

  • Light angles - Try changing the lighting angles, and possibly the location where you work. Have light sources to the left and/or right. Avoid having the light source behind or front of you, or above the photographs.

  • Time of day - Most of our users report that natural morning light works best for them. Avoid having direct sunlight on the photos you’re scanning.

  • Avoid artificial lighting if possible - bright lamp lights usually cause glare. Try using either natural light from a nearby window, or use a lamp with softer light - again, not directly projecting onto the photos you’re scanning.

  • Use a photo tent - click here - diffuses light source, softens shadow and reduces glares.

The scanning process takes a bit of trial and error, but with a little bit of patience you’ll find the right combination that works best for you.
