I have scanned perhaps 60,000 philatelic images, and I thought that was a pretty large number.

You're overthinking things. You don't need anything more than some empty space on the same desk the scanner is on. Obviously, everyone's work-flow will be different, but ultimately it's all variations of: remove stamp from wherever it is, scan stamp, return stamp to where it was or put somewhere new, mark sheet that you scanned stamp. move on to next stamp. That's it.

It looks like that wallpaper may pre-date most of my stamps.

I have similar wallpaper but do not have similar pictures hanging on my wall (but it does help me better under some of GeoffHa's previous posts).

GeoffHa, it is useful. Thank you for your example.

A lot of Belarusians have such flowers wallpapers. This is your taste, don't keep others mind on it.

My daughter and I are very messy people, unfortunately - this is better than it often looks. We used to have some lovely Sanderson tree-of-life wallpapers when my ex's father worked for a home decorating business!

I don't use special equipment. I use my smartphone to make pictures and upload them to my Google drive. In Google drive I have a separate folder for each country. When I want trade with someone I allow them to look at my drive.

Got some great advice here on SCF some years ago now, to keep my windows 7 scanner working. That scanner is the best design for me, no other scanner is like it. My scanner is a canoscan 600f working by using VueScan to patch the old scanner to work with windows 10. This scanner has a flat bed to slide a stock card on and off from with total ease. This saves heaps of work when scanning large number of images often.

I recently switched-up my setup as part of a larger project. I was without physical access to my collection for 3 years while stationed in Japan, and during that time I redesigned my album pages. So, now I have the task of remounting everything on the new album pages.

Since I'm going to have all my stamps out of the albums as part of that process, I decided to re-scan my entire collection as 1200 dpi TIFs (though uploaded to my website as JPGs for size reasons). I also decided it was time to invest in a better scanner and software that could more accurately capture the stamps' colors. It wasn't cheap, but with the volume of scanning I do, it pays for itself in the end.

Scanner: Epson 12000XL - large format (11" x 17") so I can more easily scan large volumes at once, and so I can scan Letter-sized album pages without jamming them up against the edge of the scan

Software: SilverFast Ai - allows for scanner calibration and excellent image quality. The default Epson software wasn't great with colors, and VueScan's method of scanning multiples at once is lacking.

And of course PMGS Stampfix.
