This is a very tiny format that i wonder might be enlarged suitable for framing (maybe to a 5x7 size). I know it's not the best because the tops of the heads are not totally visible, but it's all I have. Thanks for any improvement/enlargement you might be able to provide.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Translation of Immigration Doc, please

Many thanks, Andrew. Great job! You are right...not very exciting. However, it resolves an issue we had about whether that section had anything of value that should be included in a write up. Now, we can omit that section I think, which will save us space! Thanks again!

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Translation of Immigration Doc, please

My Swiss immigrants came to America. Would someone be able to give me a translation of this portion of their ticket? I guess it's in German?? Thank you!

Please redirect me if I should post in a different forum.

Peter - Thank you so very much for your restorations. i don't think I can ask for much more! What an improvement from my original posting. I appreciate it very much.

Boo....thank you for the tip. I am going to play around with that scanner when i get more time. I understand what you are suggesting!

Many thanks all for working with me through all the technical challenges and helping me get to the point that I can at least make a decent scan. This V600 is sooooo much better than the other scanner I was using! I actually think I know what is in that photo on the table!!!

Thanks, Chole. This link didn't work, but it did encourage me to look for a driver that would. It seems when I got the scanner a couple of years ago they did not have an Epson download for Mac. So, they provided a different compatible software called Silverfast, which is way too advanced for me. I have downloaded the Epson driver and will give it a try tomorrow.

Well Gadget and Carol - I have spent all day trying to get this scanner of mine up and running with limited success. The issue is that after I got it, I changed from Windows to a Mac and the sofware that came with the Epson 600V scanner doesn't work. I have software that does work but it is so technical I'm having problems understanding how to do what.

However, I have rescanned the photo and it seems much better than the original one I posted, so I am attaching that to see if it can be worked with any better. I think it's as good as I'm gonna get at this point. See what you think.

Thanks, Carol...I've now determined that the scanner i need to set up has this feature. I'm just having some issues setting the scanner up. So, I shall work on that today and see what I can do.

Be back with you all soon as!!

P.S. just got the call today to get our jabs! Woo hoo!!!

Yes, Gadget, the rendition by John-76 shows the white horses a bit more clearly.

I am going to have to do some research related to the "new" scanner I have to see if I can "preview" the scan and then crop and size so that there's a chance of identifying the subjects in the wall art and table photo. I've determined that the one I have been using does not have that capability.

Thought you all might be interested in seeing the home this came from. Just posting this for info. It is from a local history book. My grandfather had an original photo which I might post for restoration at some point as well.

Hmmm, Gadget. I'm not sure how I could scan just a portion of the original photo. Any tips? The scanner I have is just a flatbed scanner (you know, one of those multi-task printer, scanners). I do have another brand new scanner that I have not set up yet. I'm wondering if it would give me that option. It's been sitting in a box for (gulp) 2 years. Supposed to be really good.

Do you have any other tips on scanning just a portion of the original photo. I have an iphone 12 pro but have never tried to scan anything on it. Just got it.
