Make sure the white document matt from uner the lid has been removed. Also in Epson scan make sure you have changed the document type from reflective to Film and Colour positive.

I am scanning Kodachrome Transparency's and I am struggling to capture the full image on some slides. Some are scanning fine, others are chopping off an edge? Any ideas?


There are manual position settings you can use.
Make sure the film is placed correctly in the film holder and the film holder is properly
positioned on the document table.
Switch to Home Mode or Professional Mode, and preview with the Normal Preview. In the
Preview window, create marquees on the area you want to scan, and then scan.

Also...if all else fails
Try rotating the slide 90 degrees, you can always rotate the saved image afterwards.Ditto flipping over to the other side

.I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Tip

LPI, PPI,DPI conversions


Here is a conversion chart for DPI (Dots per inch) to LPI (Lines per inch) or PPI (Pixels per inch)

180 DPI................31 lines/inch or 68 PPI
360 DPI................63 lines/inch or 138 PPI
720 DPI................127 lines/inch or 280 PPI
1440 DPI..............255 lines/inch or 561 PPI
2880 DPI..................510 lines/inch or 1122 PPI

If you plan to enlarge your image, it is better to enlarge it when you're scanning rather than in your application. Each time you modify
an image, you lose some quality. Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as a 35 mm slide or wallet-size photo, you'll need
to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality, but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient. You must
manually adjust the resolution (dpi) to maintain the same image quality when you resize your image. For example, if you have a 300
dpi 2 x 2-inch image that you want to enlarge to 4 x 4 (a factor of 200%), increase the Scale setting to 200% or change the resolution to 600 dpi.

My Epson 4180 does not recognize the correct size of slides and B&W negatives even though I am using the carriers that came with the scanner. For example, the first scanned image on the negative strip...


I had this problem and what I figured out is that there is random stray light getting through between the holder and the slide itself. So, I created another template and taped it to the holder. The goal is to eliminate the stray light. This is how I did it basically. Get a black sheet of construction paper. Line it up with the Epson slide template and cut out holes for each slide so just the image/film plus a tiny edge around is exposed.

The slide holder will not return after scanning. The little wheel that is supposed to move the slide holder just clicks but doesn't move the slide holder. I have to remove it by hand. By the way, this...


I have the 5400 II and have had similar problem. I found out, that it is essential, that the film/slide holder is clean and have a smooth surface. Specially on the edge where it touches the plain bearings. I have lubricated the whole holder with acid-free silicone, wich over time made the scanner work perfectly.

Hi, I have Canon Pixma MP270. IS it possible to scan photo negatives and change to colour prints. thanks. Blair


A multi-purpose printer scanner cannot scan negatives or slides.
You need a slide scanner or a flatbed scanner that is capable of scanning negatives and slides. Not all flatbed scanners are capable of scanning slides and negatives.

Scanning in Epson 4180 perfection - trying to scan slide in home mode - positive film - when it scans the slide in its holder it scans the holder & the slide. What do I need to change?


Make sure the white document matt has been removed from underneath the lid. Then make sure that the document type has been changed from reflective to Film etc. If film is greyed out then check the cable is connected properly from the lid to the base of the scanner.

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.

Slide scanning with Epson Perfection 2450


I don't know if this is truly a "solution" or not, but I get the same thing on my HP 4850 scans. After scanning, I just crop the pictures to remove the black borders. Can you do that?

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?
