    Sigh, the tinypic isn't working. I had to deprecate the image even more to show you. I couldn't just attach a new image so I had to make a new post, please forgive me.

    Uh so embarassing....

    I can see your problem, but the gray just doesn't provide sufficient contrast to the rust-colored circle. Squint your eyes and the two just blend together. A color blind person would see almost no difference....

    Looks like I was writing my post while you were posting your revision, which I think is much better.

    If it were me, I would remove the faint type at the top that duplicates the smaller type....

    Definitely get the deposit up front. Cash, check or credit card if you have the ability. A lot of clients like to pay by credit card so they don't have to pay out cash until that bill comes in....

  • scanner for mounted slides?

    I had access to a Nikon film/slide/negative scanner for while and was able to scan a number of slides (out of about 30 years' worth of family vacations, graduations, etc. etc....) for a photo frame for my folks.

    Unfortunately, the owner needed it back before I got near enough slides scanned...

    Does anyone know of a scanner that will take mounted slides? I can find numerous ones that will scan negatives or unmounted slides, but I'm finding nothing other than Nikon-priced scanners that will do the slides that are in their little frame thingies...

    I have an HP 4010 which has a place to "slid in" slides or film. Yes, it does seem to take the mounted slides. I've used it for the past year and it has done a fabulous job of scanning negatives and photos, and odd bits of things. I don't have slides to test for you though.

      I have a Canon 8800 that has a mounted slide holder, a light lid and will scan the slides as individual files. It only holds 4 slides at a time though. It does scan fairly fast and does a fairly decent job (you don't want to use it for going much over 8"x10" if you like pixel-sharp photos) but don't know if I'd want to do thousands that way.

      Have you checked into renting one from a photography shop perhaps? Might take some calling around. They aren't as common as they used to be.

        Artistsdad,

        You might check this out (and there is a pretty good rebate right now) . Never used it myself, but good reviews. An acquaintance of mine has one, and he's been very happy with it. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...E_Scanner.html
        What others think of you is none of your business
