That should work fine.
If you want the scanned images to be the same size as the original, scan at 300 dpi.
All scanners can easily do that.
Be sure to wipe the dust off of each photo before scanning.
Hello, I want to scan old photos. I have a Canon Pixma MP560 all in one printer/scanner. Is this good enough quality to save them as a JPEG? Just want to save the money of getting a shop to do it for me if I have good enough quality equipment already. Or should I buy a specific scanner? I have boxes of photos!
