finding your page

Today we deal with the consequences of the 'children' who find the trip to the photocopier so onerous that they just have to rip out the page(s) they need for their work.  In that case there is nothing to do but contact another library and get replacement pages.  However they often come single sided; makes for a tight fit, twice as much paper in a narrow space.  But with the coming of double sided printers, scanners, and my personal fave, Photoshop!, a much more pleasing outcome can be attained.

Working in Photoshop it is especially easy to line up your back to back pages by having them on different layers, changing the opacity of the top layer and moving it into alignment with what is now visible below.  You can also clean up all the ugly edges and black photocopy dots that come from the pages faxed over to you.
