Hi, I am scanning some old b&w pics of my parents from the 40's - 50's so I can make photo books. My problem is that they all look so "flat" when printed and their faces are blurry. I use Photoshop CS-5, but am not proficient with it yet. I also have books on the subject, but haven't found what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions. Thanks.

When you Scan you lose so much resolution that there really is not anything I have found to change this.

It is my desire to learn more about photography everyday.
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.
