4 corners method to always succeed at scanning multiple photos

This method requires a bit of preparation. Group your photos by size: ideally you will want to 4 scan photos of identical size in each pass.
  1. Put one photo in each corner of your flatbed scanner's document window.
  2. Make sure the checkbox "preserve splits" is checked in AutoSplitter.
  3. Click the Scan button and see your photos being autodetected and cropped. If you need to, adjust the cropping areas.
  4. Click Save All to write the individual photographs to disc.
  5. Repeat from step #1 - from now on AutoSplitter will reuse the highlighted areas for cropping and extracting the freshly scanned photos.
What is different in this workflow? Detection of photos is only done once - and then the results are carried over for all subsequent scanning passes. This method guarantees that all your photo detections will be accurate as long as you scan photos of identical size. This scanning process is optimal, you don't need to wait for the software to autodetect photos again and again. This method will also guarantee that photos are always detected very accurately.

AutoSplitter can help you in this scenario as well.

  2. Click Open Folder button in AutoSplitter and choose the folder that contains your pre-scanned images.
  3. Drag and drop one or more scanned image files from Windows Explorer onto AutoSplitter's main screen.
In each case, AutoSplitter's photo detection will engage and look for invididual photos in the image file. If you have opened more then one file, a new panel will show up on the left side of the software's main window. This panel is titled "Review batch detection". It will show the thumbnails of all processed files. Detected photos will be highlighted by a red frame. This is how you proceed now:
  1. Double click an image in this panel. The image will be opened and the splits will be displayed in the right hand panel.
  2. Make adjustments to the detected photos if needed.
  3. Save all button writes all photos to disc.

Click Finish review button to conclude your review session. You cannot return to the review session anymore after this point, so make sure you have done everything you wanted.

Retouch your scanned photos automatically

Check out all 3 before and after examples:

Photo before retouching - example 3 Enhanced photo - orange tone removed automatically

Old photos usually fade or yellow. Why does this happen? It's mainly down to 3 things: 1) UV radiation. Ultraviolet frequencies are a part of natural sunlight. These rays are damaging, they will cause your photos to fade out over time. Protect your old prints from light, keep them under cover all the time! 2) Acidic paper. Some photos have been printed on material that will deteriorate without any interference over time. This usually causes orangeish tint in your photo. 3) Fungal growth. You can't avoid these tiny lifeforms - they will cause brownish discoloration to your photos.

Whatever happened to your colors, AutoSplitter offers automatic photo correction features which efficiently fights against all these aging effects. Revitalize colors feature will bring your old, faded or yellowed photos back to life. Even black and white photos are going to be much more vivid after revitalization. You can also change contrast and saturation values of your scanned photos. Increased contrast will make photos more lively, while increased saturation will make colors pop out even more.
