Some of your answers will depend on what type of scanner you have , a full scan bed or a 1 page all in one and which way the lid opens , but the most important is what software you run .
I think most agree the Epson scan beds are best , I use an Epson all in one single page scanner , I have tried different software and I like the Epson software that came with my scanner and here on settings the most important word is descreening make sure if you can turn this on , night and day difference , and scan at 300dpi or less any more is a waste of your time and you get pics that are to big and won't upload .
To destroy a magazine or not, me I'm cheap and after I scan my whole collection I will sell them , so I try to be careful and fold them to scan , but if you have a full scan bed you can flatten them out but make sure you weight them down to flatten them out .
