Digitalising 35mm slides

Recommended Posts

Have a pile of slides inheritated from my mum. Some including me looking nice with hair 60 years ago. I do not have a proper converter so tried various things. Can capture the photo ok but not exactly crystal clear. 

Best results by having a white page on my pc. Then hold a slide, on a fixed clip, in front of it.  Then photo the result with a camera. 

Anyone got any suggestions to improve the quality?

Must admit that is similar to how I've done it too .. holding in front of a white card .. but on a sunny windowsill.
Came out quite well.

I had a blank Word document on screen for white back lighting the slide. 

Have to find my tripod that is hiding somewhere in the house so camera is also fixed then use time delay to photo so no shame. That might help.

As I had so many slides to get through I was fortunately given a proper slide converter. Saves an awful lot of time and effort. The method above is fine for a few.

Look for a desktop scanner with slide scanning functionality - best solution overall.

A lot cheaper to have a specific converter if you are not looking for new scanner/printer.
