    I seem never to tire of reading about, and perusing photos of, the experiences of those who served during WW2. Those photographs of your father's are a treasure.

    Which is why i'd like to offer a suggestion: These pics are awfully teensy, so it would be worth it to re-scan them at a higher resolution. Most scanner software these days will allow one to drag out a selection within the preview screen, and then set the density and size of the output. If i was doing the job i'd go with 300dpi and at least 6 inches (1800 pixels) across so that they'd be ok for printing in a book. But 72-150 dpi is fine, as long as your output will be be a reasonable size on screen. Your local library (or neighbourhood kids) might give you a crash course.

    I hope this advice is received the way i intend. After all, this is just another anonymous comment in the echo chamber. But if you knew how many archival scans i've made, not to mention my enormous interest in the untold stories of WW2 …

    Thanks, once again, for posting.
