Scanning of negatives and slides to a computer -Is it possible

My father has one of these but lives miles away. He bought it and wants to scan neagtives and slides and save these images onto his computer. However, now he has read the instructions he says that once he has scanned the negatives he can only cause them to print a copy of the picture and he can not save the slide as a digital image in his hard drive. Can anyone tell me whether he is reading this right?

If you can copy slides onto the hard drive could someone tell me how.

Thanks

Please follow the instructions below to use the Scan and Save option in Smart Panel

1. Open Smart Panel and double-click Scan and Save

2. The scanner normally defaults to AUTOMATIC MODE and will scan without any intervention. Should you wish to use PROFESSIONAL MODE or HOME MODE, simply click on PAUSE and the MODE you wish to use.

3. After the scan completes, you will be taken to the VIEW IMAGES screen. Should you wish to change the file name, click on IMAGEXXXX( X representing the number) and enter the file name of your choice. Click NEXT

4. In the SAVE FILE screen, select your FILE PATH and FILE TYPE. After making the adjustments you wish, click on SAVE.

Did you get my question about scanner


We try to answer questions. We are not n educational centre. When you want to learn how to use a scanner, when you already bought one, it look to me like I buy a car and then I ask how to use it. I buy a Fiat 500 and want to start a delivery service for refrigerators. As soon as someone starts explaining how to use the fiat 500 I say, He how do I put a refrigerator or even better 20 refrigerators in the car?
Looks silly, but you don't but a scanner just for scanning. You must have a goal, what you want to scan.
I bought a scanner for my photo hobby and scan negatives, positives, slides and real photo's. And yes I sometimes scan an article from a magazine. But I can tell you for every different source you need different techniques. And with every scanner comes a manual (or you can download it from the net, explaining how you can scan the different media types.
Basically you put sometime on or in the scanner and start the program that came with the scanner.
But with most (cheaper) flatbed scanners you can put a slide or a photo negative on the scanner, but you can't get a picture, because it does not have a light source, needed to scan a negative or slide.
Then for every source you have different techniques to make a scan or to make a good quality scan.
After years of using scanners, I'm still learning how to improve my output.
Don't think I'm to lazy to explain how to scan, because, just put an image on the scanned and press the scan button. You will have a result. But again for every different source and foe every wanted result is a different setting needed, and it can't be explained in writing. I recently followed some Linda lectures about scanning. I think that would be the best way to go when you really want to do some good scanning.
To get an idea, google for lynda.com and scanning, or look here:

Hi, I have Canon Pixma MP270. IS it possible to scan photo negatives and change to colour prints. thanks. Blair


A multi-purpose printer scanner cannot scan negatives or slides.
You need a slide scanner or a flatbed scanner that is capable of scanning negatives and slides. Not all flatbed scanners are capable of scanning slides and negatives.

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 monochrome negatives on Coolscan 5000ED


Your killing yourself how big are you going to print this!!! Are you using Vuescan or silverfast for scanning or Nikons util? Stay away from Nikons utility! 2x sample is plenty and turn off ICE for monochrome (it makes a mess of things) but 16 bit yes until you print then go down to 8 after you resize for final print.

35mm Color Slides


Here they are for Mac and PC

Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
For scanning transparencies in HOME mode - for EPSON SCAN models, not Epson Twain/Manual mode models.
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in FULL AUTO MODE as the scan begins click PAUSE or CANCEL, then change "Full Auto Mode" to "Home Mode".
2) You will now see all Epson Scan settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the large preview button to get a visual of what is on the scanner.
3) Ensure the settings on the Epson Scan are correct for what you wish to scan. For example, the DOCUMENT TYPE for transparencies must be either "Color negative film", "B&W Negative Film" or "Positive film"*.
* FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is set for a flatbed related option, ie PHOTO, the scanner is looking for reflective items and will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT TYPES for "FILM" are greyed out or cannot be selected, close the Epson Scan, reseat the power/communication cable connecting the base of the scanner to the transparency unit, then reopen Epson Scan and try again.
NOTE for PROFESSIONAL MODE users: DOCUMENT TYPE should read TRANSPARENCY for film scans.
4) Ensure the other scanner settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing. For example:
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no means to calculate what your exact needs will be in this situation; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing a THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you receive a message that the scanner could not find the film, or you see in the preview that part of the scan is cut off, click the down arrow next to the large PREVIEW button and click NORMAL, then PREVIEW again. In NORMAL PREVIEW mode, the scanner will capture all information on the flatbed; you will then have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button (click, hold, drag) to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.
