Bracebridge Pool from a postcard published by Salmon, not postally used, but from the number, colour and car I should say late fifties early sixties. I think an expert will have to play with it and the one going into Cannon Hill. What format should I scan in

Assuming you are using Windows
1.
Left click on it to display the image
2.
When the image displays, right click on the image and 'save as'.
3.
Edit it as necessary.

On my iPad I would display it and screenshot it.
Find it in Camera Roll
Rotate it left slightly because it has a slight right rotation.
Then use editor to crop it to just show the image and save as a jpg.

This is my own postcard, so using the all singing, all dancing Minolta photocopier at work, it automatically scans in PDF, but the youngest member of staff has just advised me that I can scan in other formats, can you suggest one please?

Hi Bob,
Didn’t realise you were scanning it.
I would scan it as a jpg and use the scanner preview to see what you will get and reposition as required.

Don't think of it as a mess Bob - more a learning curve!

I stopped posting for ages because I couldn't get my pictures onto the forum and then Lyn, I think it was, explained and all was well after that. At the time they were too large and she told me how to re-size them. I've learned so much from the folks on here.

A nice old postcard view of Wyndley Pool but with a spelling mistake. I spent many happy hours playing by the pool ... even fell in it once.
