To Scan or Not to Scan – that is the Question! — 2 Comments

  1. I got a relatively inexpensive scanner a few years ago and while it would only do one slide at a time, the holder would hold three for each load. What a pain to do several hundred slides. None of the slides were great (all were taken before I knew diddly about photography) butter empathy family memories, so I wanted to digitize them. The quality of the images was nowhere as good as I remembered the slides, partly because of the machine and software, but just as much because of the dust and fingerprints, mostly dust. Cleaning, brushing , and blowing each and every slide, sometimes two or three times to try to get it clean was the biggest problem I had. And all my slides had been stored in closed cubes, not open carousels. Good luck!!
