How to Scan Your Slides with a 35 mm Slide Scanner
Before digital cameras came along, color print negative film and slide film were the norm in photography. You may have several tidy little boxes or sheets of mounted 35 mm slides left over from your film cameras, which are now collecting dust in a basement or storage room. You don't need to dig up the slide projector to look at those old 35 mm slides anymore, though. Once the slides have been digitally converted with a scanner, they can be shared electronically or printed out. With slide and film scanners, anyone can scan their old 35 mm slides and share them with others. You'll need a 35 mm slide scanner connected to a computer with enough storage for a lot of digital images. Here are a few simple steps to help you start using your scanner to convert your slides.
