Scanning TIps - General
If you are suffering from male pattern baldness, then it is likely that you are disgusted with the genetic trait you have inherited. Although there is really nothing you can do about the genes you have inherited, you can at least try to delay or stop the progression of your hair loss issue so that you can keep the hair that makes you more presentable as compared if you were to become bald due to the generic condition. These days, male pattern baldness is treatable as long as you know what treatment to use for your hair fall condition.
In the past, there was really no effective remedy for androgenic alopecia. The triggering factors for the genetic condition are age, genes, and hormones. The only thing that you can hope to mess up with the three is hormones and this is where Propecia becomes useful. Propecia is the only FDA approved hair loss remedy that is very effective in treating male pattern baldness. In fact, the design of the treatment is particularly aimed in treating the genetic issue as it literally prevents the production of the hormone that is responsible for the hair loss itself.

Developing a bacterial infection, whether direct or indirect, is something that should put you on guard. This is because such microbial infection can cause disease and conditions that not only makes your normal bodily function put out of balance, but the disease they cause can create tremendous pain, discomfort, shame, or even death if they are not treated at the soonest possible time. This is because certain bacterial infections, once they have progressed and developed, can cause harm to other body parts. If a certain vital organ in your body gets infected and eventually leads to the failure of the organ, it may mean instantaneous death to the individual. For this reason, if you ever develop any form of bacterial infection, make it a point to treat it with antibiotics as soon as possible.
One of the most common antibiotics used for treating bacterial infections is amoxicillin. Amoxicillin is not exactly the most potent of antibiotics, but proper amoxicillin dosage use is effective enough to treat most types of infection. As long as you follow course treatment directions properly when using amoxicillin, you will be able to treat most types of infections you can get or acquire. Of course, it is vital that you attempt to treat the infection without any further delay so you can purge the infection out of your body, thus preventing it from growing, spreading, and becoming more difficult to treat.

For images intended for e-mail attachments, save them in .jpg format, with the high quality (little compression) setting.
For images intended to be sent via CD or DVD, save them in .tif format, which does not compress the image data.
I prefer to work with .tif format and I strongly suggest it to you. Tiff files are lossless and do not attempt to compress the file size by "fudging" the color information in the image data. Why reduce or limit the obtainable quality of the restored images right at the start by not making the scan as good as possible?
Begin by wiping the glass of the scanner with a non-abrasive wipe and some glass cleaner like Windex. Make sure the glass is dry before placing the photo down. If you have a can of compressed air, you may also spray the glass and (carefully) the photo itself to remove any extra dust or debris. Also, make sure the photo rests against one side of the scanner so that it remains straight. Preview the photo before scanning it. Please do not use any of the sharpening, de-screening, dust and scratch removal, or color correction functions of your scanner. Make sure they are all turned off before you start your scan.
The resolution, or dots-per-inch (dpi) that you should scan your photos is based upon their size. For Photos 2x3 in. or smaller — Scan at 600 dpi. For Photos 2x3 to 5x7 in. — Scan at 400 dpi. For Photos 5x7 and larger — Scan at 300 dpi.
The size of my working files is usually range between 5 MB to, sometimes, well over 100 MB. This allows successful printing of images with dimensions up to twice the size of the originals. Such enlargements are not feasible from .jpg images due to the image compression.
