The whitest white there is is the reflective white on the underside of a scanner tray. Get 2-4 pages of regular office paper and put them between your slides and the scanner lid. That should at least be better. If still not acceptable, try a flat (as in matte, not two-dimensional), white piece of thin cardboard instead of the paper.
Try it and you'll see where I'm going. Does your printer/scanner come with any photo adjustment features in its software?

I am having problems scanning 35mm slides, I seem


you have chosen normal preview
1. change it to thumbnail preview
2. or click on "All" button in normal preview
so you would scan multiple negatives.

increase your dpi setting or your target area or both
I am also scanning color negatives at 3600dpi and 48bit. file is large but quality is very very good...

How to scan slides with Visioneer 9520 USB Scanner - it scans who


I have successfully used my Visioneer 9520 to scan 35mm slides, and they came out perfect. To do this, in my image editing software, I select File/Import/Acquire/Visioneer ScanManger Pro. This opens the VIsioneer scan manager window, where I select "Scan 35mm using:" and then I choose the desired scanning configuration, e.g., "35mm Better, 35mm Best, Custom" etc. See image below.
BTW: After several moves, I have lost my 35mm scanning template. Do you know where I can get another one, or do you know someone who could actually scan theirs and email the image to me? I could then create a duplicate from heavy black construction paper or card stock.

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.

Scanned 35mm slide comes out as rectangle with dark edges


I've not ever seen "square" 35mm slides. By definition they are a rectangular positive film in an outer square "mount".

If you have a truly square piece of film then it is not a 35mm slide. You may have to use settings other than those for a 35mm film but these would be I don't know.

When were they taken (approximately)? What brand of film? Are they in a cardboard "mount?

Scanning slides with the Epson Perfection 1250


To be honest, I have no idea of how you were able to scan larger transparencies in the past. The scanner and its software were never designed to do this and there is no workaround.
