How to Scan Large Artwork for Books etc

How do you scan artwork that is too big for your scanner?

After my last video, showing how to scan artwork for children’s books, Danio Caw asked me how to scan artwork that is too big for the scanner.

It depends how much too big. If the shorter side of the artwork is no bigger than the longer side of the scanning area, you can stitch it together in an image program like photoshop or affinity.

In this video I show you how. If your artwork is really big it will need to be photographed or scanned on a professional large scanner.
