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.

HP Deskjet F2483. Is there a special adaptor for old slides?


This model printer with a flatbed scanner cannot scan slides.
There isnt any adapter that you can use.
It would need a light source to shine through the slides to be picked up by the scanner sensor.

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 there a manual that shows how to scan slides


Hello,

Here is the support site for your scanner:

Canon LiDE 600F Support

Under the Drivers & Downloads there are a couple manuals. The Quick Start Guide, which is a PDF file and the On Screen manual which is an exe file. The PDF will open right up. The other you will need to download the file to your desktop and when the download completes you need to run (double-click) the file to install it.

Note: This scanner does not support scanning of Mounted slides. (See Footnote #5 on Page 9 of the Quick Start Guide.)

You may be able to unmount the slides carefully and follow the instructions for scanning film. You might try that on a less desirable slide before unmounting them all. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am unhappy with the light level while scanning slides.


I haven't solved the light problem, but I have found a pretty good program that allows me to enhance my scanned slides-pics into nearly slide-projector quality pics: XnView. I have found that it is best to not try to use the enhance program in PhotoStudio 5.5 (the driver-program for the Canonscan 4400F).

Scanning 35mm slides and saving to computer


In order to scan 35mm slides to your computer, you need a scanner that has the capability of doing this. These scanners will either come with a 35mm adapter that will allow you to scan the slides, or there are scanners that will scan only 35mm slides. A good recommendation is either this or this.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

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.
