I had put it off long enough, it was time to take the car in for it's maintenance. The only reason I had put if off was the time involved sitting around at the dealer. This time I packed ahead of time. I grabbed my unfinished Christmas cards, two stacks of photos from Grandam Eva's estate and my Flip-pal. I finished the cards in the first thirty minutes. I then moved on to the photos. I pulled my Flip-pal out, set up a little processing area (one arm of the chair for photos to be scanned, and the other arm for photos that have been scanned) and began scanning. I went through about fifteen photos before the first person approached and asked me what I was doing. I explained the Flip-pal, gave them a demonstration and the man walked away after asking for a pen and paper to write down the name of the scanner. I scanned about ten more photos before the next person approached. This time it was a man and wife. I went through the explanation and a demonstration. They wrote down the info on the scanner and disappeared. Next the salesman came over. "What are you doing?", again with the explanation and demonstration. I have now been at the dealer for about an hour. I had a chance to finish up one stack of photos and went on to the second stack. Guess what, more folks came into the service area and again I explained the product and performed demonstrations - three more times to be exact. Thank heavens the car was done, I was out of photos - total scanned forty five- and the lady next to me decided after my demonstration that we were best friends and she was telling me all about her age spots and bladder issues.
I love my Flip-pal, perhaps I should work for them and then I would be getting a commission on all the sales I generated during my time at the dealer. I have heard some buzz that folks prefer to save their photos in a tiff format rather than jpeg. You can use the Flip-pal to scan the photos, upload them to your computer and then save them in tiff rather than jpeg. For more information on the Flip-pal visit http://flip-pal.com/ Happy scanning!
