We Need Sample Images, can you help?

Post by daniel_reetz » 31 Oct 2009, 12:46

Hey all,

So almost daily now people are emailing me for sample images from our various book scanners. I would love to have a gallery on the front page, featuring:

A picture of your scanner.
A page or two of the output of your scanner.

That would put to rest any of the quality arguments that seem to come up over and over again. The thing here is that the book samples should pretty much be from out-of-copyright or public domain books. Anyone interested in helping out with this?
