Hi! I think Divide Scanned Photos feature is amazing!
for those scans I put black construction paper in the rear, it works like a charm.
however, my mom scanned multiple photos prior to us finding Elements and did not use a dark background.
Is there any way to salvage this or is it too late?
when we attempt to Divide Scanned Photos on a set of B&W photos with a white background, no luck.
PSE11 just spits out a copy of the same photo
If PSE only make a copy of the original image it means it does not able to find the edges.
It should be scanned with dark background which clearly alienated the images seperately .
you can try "divide scan photos" feature after increasing the resolution of the image .
1)Go to Image menu >> resize >> Image size
2)check on the resample check box.
3)Increase the resolution .
4)try again "Divide scan Photos"
if still it does not do anything , try to seperate the images using selection > layer via cut , crop etc .
