I am looking to buy a scanner to scan in all of my paperwork (e.g. Reports, manuals, Tax Returns, Receipts, etc.), and could use some advice...
1.) How much do I have to spend to get a decent scanner?
2.) At what DPI would I need to scan something like a cash register receipt, so I can see it on my monitor AND re-print it if needed?
3.) Is it better to scan Textual Documents in as a PDF or a GIF? (I may be building a PHP application to manage all of my receipts, so for that, a JPEG, GIF, or PNG would be better...)
4.) Any other advice?
