What is involved in converting slides to photographs?


Answer by  Ava (192)

I convert my slides using an Epson Perfection V500 Photo scanner. It has a special adapter to insert the slides and makes excellent digital photos which I import to iPhoto on my Mac.

If you want to get prints made from older slides, take them to a professional photo store and they can send the slides away to get prints made. You can also get slide scanners to scan them into any computer.

If you have a scanner you could scan them and print them at your local costco.They have the printer profiles of every store online so you could download them and adjust you photos for their printer.Alternately they can scan and print for you if you dont want to mess around with scanning etc.

A slide can be projected onto a piece of negative film, which is then used to print the photo; this requires special equipment. Or simply scan the slide -- using a digital scanner with a high resolution (pixels per inch) and then print the resulting file from a computer.

First and foremost, you need an enlarger and a dark toom. After you have those two, all you need to do is put the slide into the enlarger and have it shine the slide's image onto a piece of light sensitive paper. The only complicated part is operating the enlarger, but that can easily be learned.

First you have to digitalise the slide using a scanner made for slides. The digital file you created can be send to a printer or printshop for getting a photograph.

You need to scan the slide using a film scanner (or pay someone to do it). Then you can use it just like a photo from a digital camera.

A scanner with a slide adapter can be used. Have an image editing software like photoshop installed in your computer to enhance the image and make them look like new.

It's pretty simple, actually, provided you have the money to do it. Basically, you will need a scanner attached to you computer, but you will also need to make sure it is a model that has an optional slide adapter. You will need this too, obviously. Then, scan away!

Converting slides to photographs is easy if one has a computer, a scanner, and a color printer. The slide is scanned, stored digitally, and with the use of proper software, printed onto photo quality paper.


Answer by  LeheckaG (1826)

Color-transparency-slides used to be a professional's favorite; slides can be relatively-easily sorted, projected, or enlarged/printed. You can send slides to a film-processor (like via Walgreens, Walmart,...) and request enlargements/prints. Or you can scan them (via HP, Nikon, or Polaroid, ... color-transparency-slide-scanner) into your-compter, and print them on your color-printer or send them to a digital-film-printer (like via Walgreens, Walmart, ...)
