Have you digitized all of your stamps, and why doing so? Sorry for the ignorance question.
questions welcomed here, ignorance is not asking questions.
I am a worldwide collector, and it is the only way I can be ahead of what I have.
I can search and find any stamp in my collection in seconds.
(there are exceptions)
I like to see stamps up close, 600dpi to appreciate their real beauty.
If I am bidding on an auction lot, I know exactly what my "want list" requires.
(without removing and opening an Album)
When I read about a forgery here, I can immediately locate my stamp and compare and study. (without opening an album)
It kinda just makes sense to me.
Yes, I scan every stamp that comes across my desk.
Mainly built on "swaps"
If say I get 200 worldwide stamps from Dianne
I discriminate by country
Immediately find what stamps I already have, and put them into "Duplicates" to give away to other collectors free.

My basic mantra is care of Arthur Mangan...."Just have fun"
