I have 1.000 pages to be scanned. They are about 15cm x 22cm, and must be scanned in 300 DPI, grayscale, saved in a non-lossy compression format (for example, TIF) as nnnn.TIF. The pages are unbound (the book has been professionally cut) This is a quite "relaxed" project: I give 2 months of time to finish the work, and I accept paying in stages (for example, every 25% of the work done). So, you can use this project to keep you busy when you have no better work. Delivery can be made in tw ways: 1- CDs shipped to Italy (in this case I will pay for shipping) 2- (preferred) Files uploaded to my server. In this case, be prepared to upload a total size of that can go from 2 Gbyte to 4 Gbyte. Before I accept your bid, I might ask for sample of scan from you scanner (to check your scanner has the normal quality needed) (I have about 5 books like this to scan: if you have time/technology to take more lots at shorter time please say)
