I vaguely remember someone in the past scanned their stamp images using a software and they were able to create a stamp inventory on their computer. I'm wondering if anyone have done it and know of a software that'll auto separate a page of stamp images so I can tag/sort them quickly into categories.

I have photocopied my stamp sets onto white copy paper, but want to scan them into my computer and have a way to index them.

Any tips or advices greatly appreciated TIA!

Great idea. I'd live to read about this. I'll be watching this thread

I stamped mine on paper and scanned them. I loaded the file on my nook and use it as a reference tool along with scanned copies of my page sketch books.

yes, I'm planning to scan them as pdf to have an inventory, but was wondering if there's a program that'll take the images apart from my sets of stamps (eg. a set can have a combination of flowers, sentiments etc) and I want to be able to tag each individual stamp so that I can 'search' for all the flowers stamp in my inventory.

I don't want to separate the stamps physically and then scan them, nor do I want to have copies of the images and cut them out by hand and then scan them, and then tag them one by one

There was a thread about using an app called Evernote for tagging all individually that you include the picture with.
Check into that or ask about it directly.

I separated mine by type and just scanned them as jpegs. I then had a folder with all my stamps. I just took them out of their packages and scanned. Now it does make a bit of a difference that they were clear stamps. Don't really have enough wooden stamps to justify doing those.

I use scrappypedia for that. That way I don't have to scan.

ohhh, Thank you ladies, it was Evernote! and i'll have to check out scrappypedia also.

hmmm, the hamster in my brain is thinking, if I can get all my stamps into jpegs, I'll be able to pull them up and cut with my cameo.
