Q&A

Q1:Why don’t they use real USB connectors on digital cameras?
A1: They’re too big. The tiny plugs they do use enable them to put both USB Out and Video Out in the space that will otherwise fit only USB.
Q2:What is Video Out?
A2: Shorthand for Video Output. If your camera came with a video cable, plug it into the back of the TV set, and you can see your photos on the TV screen. Just scroll through them as you would if you were looking at them on the camera’s LCD screen.
Q3:My old family pictures are printed in brown ink. Should I scan them in color or in grayscale?
A3: Try both, and see what you think. Generally, you’ll pick up better contrast if you scan in grayscale, because you’re forcing the image to compress from millions of grays to just 256. You can always put the brown back. By the way, the brown tone is called sepia, and it’s a dye applied to the paper to stabilize the image. The brown color was simply a side-effect.
