  • 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

          I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

          Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

          I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

          These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

          I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

          Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
          Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

          The fee still works out to about...
