The Hero line is built for professionals who need diverse printing features, and the Hero 6.1 delivers with connectivity through Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet along with Google Cloud Print compatibility.Finally, the Hero printers are the first to include Kodak's Email Print feature that lets you e-mail print jobs from any computer with an Internet connection, similarly to HP e Print.
Design and features Kodak designed the Hero series to live in a professional office environment, so the Hero 6.1's exterior looks more polished than the line, with a small red strip distinguishing the line between the control panel and the hidden scanner bay.However, most of the pictures do not have any clear id for dates on the back of the photos. so that's out (unless there is info on the negatives I can look to) but most have some imprint of their own code: a combination of numbers, symbols, and letters but nothing I have been able to figure out from my own memory of when they were taken.I have asked the local shops, but those who work there have no history of pre-digital cameras.Though most of us today are familiar with the concept of photo grain, this is mostly because we have experienced very large prints made from small 35mm negatives.But even here the effect is more of a softening of detail than a observable texture.The tonalities of photos are completely continuous to the eye producing true greys, for they are created by the reaction of individual photosensitive molecules to light rather than the transfer of ink from a plate.
In printed images the grey areas are usually made up of black marks that are spaced to create the optical illusion of greys.
I have a few boxes of photos to be scanned but prior to doing so I would like to be able to have a better idea of the date — or at least year — they were taken, and then scan and take note.

Real-photo postcards (sometimes called RPPCs) are the result of developing a negative onto photo paper with a pre-printed postcard backing.
Classic real-photo cards feature a variety of subjects, from mundane small- town street views to images of animals to photos that captured important political moments or terrifying natural disasters.
Some halftone cards were printed on high gloss paper to resemble a photograph but their screen patterns will give them away if one is vigilant.
