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.

Can you scan slides and negetives on a HP C5280 all in one printer


Yes, you can scan them as you would normally scan any document. Because they are small size I would recommend you scan it to the highest quality possible to get the biggest size out of it. After you are done with the scanning, to make it proper colors, you simply go into Paint from Windows, Applications, Accessories and Paint. Then you open your scanned file, go on the Image menu and select Invert Colors and you will get the proper colors on your scanned 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....

Why is my canoscan 44oof scanning in negative mode i.e white paper with black print is scanning black with white print


I solved this problem by the following:

Don't scan from the Canoscan toolbar. Use an imaging program (I used Picasa), import from the Canoscan, and Scangear opens up. In the settings for Scangear, you can choose positive or negative film (use positive for slides). You can keep using Scangear, or after using it once, you'll see it has corrected the problem with the toolbar

SCANNING SLIDES ON TO PC


Hi svengoransso - it's not clear what your problem is! Yes, you can scan slides onto a PC using a variety of scanning methods. I use both a flat bed scanner with slide attachment, and a dedicated slide scanner. Do a google search for 35 mm slide scanner - you will get lots of info. If you have a more specific problem than this, please post a new comment explaining the problem as clearly as possible.

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
