Question about HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One InkJet Printer
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.
