In this example, I scanned a large, framed cross-stitch that my mom did back in 2003. I took 12 scans and used the software to put it together into one image. All I have to say is WOW! I’ve recorded the whole process in real-time so that you can see not only how quick it is, but that I’ve not altered the image in any way…it really does a fantastic job!
Be forewarned, this is my first-ever video of any kind. But I think it turned out pretty darn good in only 2 takes! So not only was I experimenting with the scanner, I played around with the video capture feature in SnagIt. This may have opened up a new avenue for me with my how-to blog posts.

Disclosure: I was selected to participate in the Flip-Pal Simple Gifts Blog Hop and by doing so I received a Flip-Pal™ Mobile Scanner to evaluate.
