Rescanned ~700 titles last night and well over 100 did not exist in the DB. I have some work to do.

Hi,
I'm not sure about the Canada reference in the post title, but judging by the image, Australia seems more like it.

  I live in Canada. I'm typically about 1 out of 7 won't exist in the database. b-grade horror/scifi closer to 1 out of 4 with perhaps 1 out of 50 not existing in the DB at all under any UPC/locality. Canadian box sets rarely have children added properly. For a LONG time if something didn't exist, I simply went and found a different release that matched. Now, my intent is to add all the missing profiles so if I ever have to rescan again, it'll be a simple chore of zap...zap...zap. This is only about 1/4 of the collection.

what the best resolution for scanning  .. ?  200 /  300  or 600 ?    I've found that 600 takes too long to scan and 300 seemed better than 200..  my dilemma is my scans are not 'bright'  enough but  little cloudy_dull .. then I have to tweek -majorly  with some paid  software to try and bring back the same brilliance as original..
In the 60's, People took Acid to make the world Weird. Now the World is weird and People take Prozac to make it Normal.

My scans aren't the best either as I don't have a great quality scanner. I go on the premise that a mediocre quality scan is probably better than no scan at all.

Typically, I scan at 600dpi, then crop/resize/rotate the image as needed to 700px tall. Some scanners have advanced setting that will let you adjust brightness levels on the scan. If you want to do post scan processing, windows Paint won't adjust brightness/contrast, but there are lots of free picture editors out there that will, such as Pixlr or Splashup.
