The problem is how to get an old HP ScanJet 3400c (c. 2000) scanner working with a MacBook running OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard. Annoyingly I did all this once about 6 months ago but since my Mac got nicked and I didn’t make any notes I’ve now got to remember how to do it […]
I keep coming across amazing tilt shift images.
