Queries and Answers: Prints from Slides
T.J. emailed me to ask, “Where can I have prints made from slides?”
It’s one of those modern picture problems. Just about every family has boxes and carousel’s full of slides. Now that slide projectors are difficult to find, what a family to do with all those slides?
- You can scan them yourself if you own a scanner with a slide attachment. Scan at a high resolution (at least 600 dpi) and save as tif files. That’s an uncompressed format.
- You can pay someone to scan all your slides at once. ScanDigital offers a reasonable price for scanning slides and other photographic medium. There customer interface on their website is very easy to follow. What I really like about this company is the follow through. You end up with all your images on a website so you can share the link with family. Instead of having to coordinate who wants what print, they can select images from the site then order reprints through ScanDigital’s printing partner, Qoop. It’s an effortless process!
