    I agree with Verity that a Flip Pal scanner is a very handy tool (it enabled me to capture a framed, sealed-on-the-back, 16x20 vintage photo from my cousin's wall, right through the glass), but BEWARE if you have upgraded your Mac to Catalina. The current Flip Pal software, which is on the SD card and required for stitching together your multiple scans of a large item, is 32-bit only and will not run on Catalina. I have just now run into this after getting a new desktop Mac running Catalina. I emailed the company and here was their reply, April 26, 2020:

    We are currently working on the 64-bit version of the Toolbox software that will be compatible with Catalina. If you haven't already, please register at to receive an email when that release is available. Kind regards, Gordon 970-221-7223 M-F 9:00-5:00 MT

    So, until they get their upgrade done, you can still do single, small scans and download them off the SD card, but you won't be able to stitch multiple scans together.
