Scanning slides is a tricky thing, because the light comes from the wrong side. What you would need is a flatbed TMA (Transparent Media Adapter, sometimes called a film adapter).
This is basically a lamp in the lid (or a replacement lid) of a scanner, to allow it to scan film. The film is placed on the scanner glass bed, but instead of being illuminated by reflected light from below like a print, this lamp shines down through, from behind the film. Then everything else pretty much works the same, we scan film using the same basics as for prints.(source)

You can give it a shot at a high resolution (1200dpi+) and see if that gets acceptable results.

I personally was never satisfied with my scanner, so I just went to a photo shop and let them do it for me.

I would like to know whether there is some sort of attachment available to copy my photo slides and photo negatives to my PC?


There are several options but the most practical one is to get a scanner that scans transparencies. They are not cheap but are the most effective. Another option is to project the slides onto a special screen and then photograph them with a digital camera. This can be done with 35 mm negatives as well and then they can be turned into positives with software.

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....

Is it possible to scan 35mm photo slides on Epson CX5000 all-in-one?


No - slides need to be lit from the backside, which requires a 2nd lamp. They also need to be held securey. If a scanner supports slides, they will say it in the features list, and there will be a slot in the lid of the scanner that will allow you to slide several slides into a slot, which will have a good neutral-white lamp behind it

Printing from the photo tray


I have found that when you put the photo paper in to the photo tray you have to slide the photo paper in to the printer gently as far as it will go, then slide the side and rear guides to the photo paper. If you just put the photo paper in to photo tray without doing this, the printer will not take up the photo paper at all.

Cant scan 4cm x 4xm slides


The mounted slide scanning option is set for scanning 35mm mounted slides (24mm x 36mm). As far as I know there is no way to change this setting. You may want to try using the film scan option, do a preview scan, and then crop each individual slide for the final scan.
