I would scan them in at 400 dpi or higher. Then save as a jpg. You can adjust for fading or color issues in Photoshop by going to Image -> Adjustments -> Hue and Saturation. In the drop-down menu, choose the color that your photo has become (probably yellow) and sliding the bar over to the opposit color (probably cyan) until it looks better. You can also increase the saturation of the entire photo, then play with Curves to soften the saturation and eliminate any dark shadows. These options are all in the Image Adjustments menu.

I just made a apple iphoto book for my parents for christmas, consisting of scanned images from my sister’s and my childhood to present… I just scanned them in at (I believe) 600 dpi, saved them as a jpg, and it worked perfectly. The image quality was great! People couldn’t believe that I had scanned them, because they look digital. Just be sure to scan them at the highest resolution that you can/have space for on your computer.
