I purchase my Epson Perfection 4490 3 years ago. I have scanned in over 1100 pictures. I have scanned in all types: B/W photos, color photos, 35 mm slides and even 50 mm slides (by removing the door to the 2.5 inch film holder and putting in one slide at a time in the center). I just use the Home mode and everything takes care of itself. The digital ICE really works on all the color slides...not as well on the B/W photos. The photos I have scanned in were from 1940 to 1985. The color restoration has been excellent! I just use Micro Soft Picture Manager to clean up the over/under exposure. I also us this to scan in documents and create PDF files. It allows you to scan multiple pages to a single PDF file...something my old scanner from brand x wouldn't do. When I purchased mine it cost almost 3 times more than now and didn't include Photoshop Elements. Now, Photoshop Elements is included...what a deal! I give this my highest recommendation to anyone who needs to scan in photos!

I love this scanner. I does a great job with old pictures. The software that comes with it is fabulous for cleaning up most old Polaroids. We can actually enjoy the pictures again. I'm using this scanner to create 1000's of digital pictures from my families archives. It is very fast at scanning photos and you can scan many at a time. It creates separate JPG files for each picture it recognizes.

The Epson Perfection 4490 Photo scanner has fine resolution and features as typical of such scanners. However, the negative holder leaves something to be desired. It does not hold the negatives firmly in place. I have found that they are difficult to keep at the far end while loading the second negative and/or securing the top frame in place. Older curved negatives will pull up and out of position and touch the glass. At the point of touching the glass, a phenomenon called "Newton's Rings" will occur and and be copied onto the image scanned. They may not be seen until much later if a large group of negatives are scanned and insspected at a high zoom level. They are very difficult to clean even with such programs as Photoshop. It is easier to rescan than clean but the problem can still occur. It would be a real improvement if the negative holder was stiffer and had some crossmembers between frames (such as the older and no longer available Konica-Minolta holder) to keep the negative flat. I now am trying to flatten 35+ year old negatives which do not stay flat long.

I'd never had or used a scanner before buying this product and if I had some prior experience I would have been aware that this scanner doesn't copy odd-sized negatives or B+W film strips. I have plenty of both from the 1960's and 70's that were dug out of storage with great anticipation only to be extremely disappointed. What this scanner DOES scan, it scans well. If I had known this before I bought my EPSON 4490, I would have looked for a different scanner - either an EPSON product or somebody else's. I went online to see if EPSON offered any special frames to handle my stuff but didn't see any. Maybe I didn't look in the right place. Overall, this is a good product although the advertising on the box it came in should have CLEARLY spelled out what it WOULD and WOULD NOT scan. Live and learn. Now that I've had some experience scanning I will never make this same mistake again.

I have been scanning photos and slides for over 5 years and nothing I have tried has even come close to the quality of the 4490 scanner. I had almost given up on finding a high quality film/photo scanner that was affordable. On a recent project, when I started to clean up the slide images done on another scanner, I found that the images were slightly blurred and all of the colors were off. I rescanned several of the slides on the 4490 and was amazed and the difference in quality. I ended up rescanning the entire 2,000 slides because the quality was so much better. The color correction works exceptionally well for all of the slide and photo scanning. It has completely eliminated the need for photo cleanup with the exception of red eye correction. My project is nearly complete with over 15,000 images and the 4490 has performed way above all expectations. It has handled all of the slides, photos & negatives with excellent results. Don't waste you money on any other scanner for photo work! If the scanner were to die tomorrow, the 4490 would be the would the only replacement I would consider.
