How to scan negatives & slides with the epson RX620

I'd like to scan my negatives & slides but can't work how to do it. I don't find the instructions in the manual very helpful.

Do you know if there's a tutorial for this? It would have to be step-by-step in picture form as I just can't do it otherwise!

There are holders for the slides and negatives inside the top cover. Remove the white part and take out the holders. Place the slides or negatives in the holders and place on the glass plate. Then you choose the proper menu for copy or scan and follow the directions on the screen. I scanned quite a few slides and had no problem.

    i followed the intsructions exactly but it said that it didn't recognise the film

    I was able to scan my negative, but the image is unusable in its current form. IF I wanted to create a photo from the scanned negative, I see NO way to complete that task. AND THAT IS THE WHOLE REASON FOR SCANNING THE NEGATIVES!!

Does the HP photosmart 2710 scan negative ansd 35mm slides?


This multi function printer/scanner cannot scan 35mm slides and negatives.
Some flat bed scanners with a lighr scource that shines through 35 mm slides and negatives can scan them.
You will be better off getting a dedicated 35 mm slide/negative scanner.
Check out this WEB site foe slide scanners.

I need an all in one printer that also has a negative scan facility. Any suggestions, I have 2000 slides to scan .


Do you want a recomendation?do you want new or used? Typically all in one users don't scan slides or film, but flat prints, so they don't have the lighted back lid needed to scan film.I know that the Epson Stylus PHOTO RX-620 & 700 had a holder for 4 slides or 1 strip of film about 8 inches long

How to scan a slide on flatbed scanner


This model Canon MX700 cannot scan slides.
A flat bed scanner that can scan slides and negatives has a light scource that shines through the slide and negative fand is detected by the scanner sensor.
I suggest you purchase a slide scanner, it will be cheaper that getting a new flat bed scanner with slide capability.

Can HP psc 1410 PRINTER SCAN NEGATIVE AND SLIDES


Chances are that somewhere in your family photo collections you have a bunch of slides and negatives that you wish you could do more with. You may want to include them in your family history, to publish them on the Web, or simply to make digital copies so you can share them with the family.

If you've ever tried to scan a negative or slide on a regular flatbed scanner, you'll know that it doesn't work, and you end up with a pure black scan. In this article we'll show you how you get your negatives and slides into digital format, and what issues you may face along the way.



pixblue.gif Benefits Of Scanning Film

There are some key benefits to scanning film (we'll use the term to include slides and negatives) in comparison to scanning a photo. When you scan film, you can use the full area of the slide or negative, whereas a photo will generally only display a cropped portion of the original. You are also scanning the original source image rather than the color corrected and tweaked version of it that the photo processor has provided you with. The process of turning a negative image into a positive one involves inverting the colors in the image and removing the orange cast from the negative. This would be a complicated process if you were doing it by hand; however, your scanner will provide you with software to do this automatically, or you can purchase standalone software to do it.

Most cheaper flatbed scanners are designed to scan photos and other images that reflect light when it is shone onto them. The problem is that film is transparent and light passes through it rather than being reflected off it. Many flatbed scanners have an optional transparency adapter, which replaces the scanner lid with a larger box shaped ob....

Scanning slides into computer


From Lexmark's website:
To scan negatives, slides, and transparencies, you need to place the original between the light source and the sensor array so that the light passes through them before hitting the sensor. However, Lexmark scanners place the light source and the sensor array on the same side in order to catch the light as it reflects off the original. Accordingly, in order to scan originals of this type, you need a transparency adapter (also called a TPA or TPU), which is a back light that replaces the scanner cover.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
