I have a Wolverine PD20 Scanner. I've cleaned everything, removed dust, and made sure that my pictures to be scanned are cleaned as well.

I am new to picture scanning. I have hundreds of pictures to scan and I really like the convenience of the Wolverine Scanner. I just don't understand what I am doing wrong.

If you look at the attached scan, you can see the white spots that appear on all of the colored pictures that I attempt to scan. If I scan black and white pictures, the problem is minimal. Only a few spots appear.

I tried working with GIMP; however, it's a lot of work and there has to be a better way to do this. Do I really need to despackle each picture? I've looked at the scans of other people on this forum and they are perfect.

Any help would be appreciated. I want to preserve all of my old family photos.

Thank you.

Thank you. I think that's the answer. It's the actual picture itself - Non smooth surface. Hopefully, I can find the negatives.

Thanks again for responding. I appreciate it.

ICE is needed.

There's also some decent Polaroid software for this, but only available on older WinXP or OS X 10.6.
We use that on Polaroid photos, but also any old prints (Kodak, etc).
