Old slides to digital images

5 posts in this topic

My cousin has boxes of old slides from his time in the Service, and now he wants to get them in a little more user friendly format.

We are wanting to convert them to digital images somehow, any ideas?

My dad just had a pile of slides scanned and loaded on disks at S A M S club. I am sure there are many places to have it done. He had to look at slides that he had not seen in years and only took good slides in for scanning. He ended up with 10 disks full of pics..

I have a scanner at home that will scan slides as well. It is just a slower process. My dad used a handheld slide viewer and went thru his boxes of slide pretty fast..

It was a very good Idea to have them scanned. We looked over some of them memorial day weekend.

Make a copy and store it in a separate place.

Fastest Way if you just want to archive them. Load up your Slide Machine, set up your screen, set up a video camera, press record and start clicking. Then you can watch them as a movie, do a little edidting and add some music to them.

Or scan them in one at a time. they make some great slide scanners now. Currently working on starting a project of 5,000+ slides from the Orient.

If you are going to scan your slides don't put it off. I thought about it for years and never got around to it. Now I find that some of the slides are starting to deteriorate (emulsion seems to be breaking down)and the quality of the images is poor at best.

I'm using a Canon scanner that allows me to scan four slides at a time and give me the abillity to control resolution etc, but it is time consuming.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
