Using the highest quality setting, scan your photos with a flatbed scanner. Then save them as .jpg files. The result will be quite acceptable, providing that your original shots are in good condition. If you have suitable photo software, you can sharpen them and adjust the size, brightness and contrast and so on. Great fun if you have never done it before. Don't forget to back up all your cherished data such as photos.

Hope this helps

    I forgot to mention, the other thing you could try, is to take a digital photo shot of each picture. The way to do this is to set up a digital camera on a tripod looking directly downwards. You need to make sure the camera is angled exactly otherwise the frame will distort on your new photo. Place your old photo underneath it, adjust your camera height to correctly frame the old photo and use remote release (a cable with a button on it) to take the shot. You may have to play around with lighting but it does work. I still suggest the scanner as a better option though.

    Best wishes....

Vivitar camera


Hi Lamper,

You really do not need the Cd to download the pictures. Hook up the USB cable, and turn on your Camera. Your computer should alert you that the camera is connected. Follow the directions on the computer to download your Pics. I am sure your CD was quite valuable and probably had some really cool programs to edit the photos. I like using Adobe Photoshop. I will see if I can find you a download for you a new Vivitar replacement.

I cannot download pics from my Fuji finepix T200 to my computer, the camera works fine and the pc is new, could it be the usb lead


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

Pictures all white


i'm assumming the film was in the camera?If so the film was exposed to the air and if expired this will cause white pics.If film was in sealed package than it still is film related, you bought new batteries so again persumming film is very old.Sounds like shutters are opening if white,black photo's are shutter problems. hope i helped!

How do I scan my old 35mm slides and transfer onto dics


There is a great little device at Bed Bath & Beyond right now that is inexpensive and easy to use. You just pop them in there hit a button and do the next one. There are also 6 extra converter trays for around $20 so you dont have to spend all of your time waiting on one to scan so you can put the other one in. You can find it here http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=15800313&RN=2017

Copying files to the computer


  It would be easier to diagnose the problem if you'd upload a picture.    Have you had similar problems with cameras that don't use batteries? And if so, how do you go about resetting them once they are unplugged? Proper resetting is critical!   Some older cameras (usually those with no batteries) have a selector somewhere near the PC cord socket, labeled "M" in the one position or "X" in the other. These stand for "Microsoft" and "OSX". Having it set to the wrong position for your PC can cause upload failures. Newer cameras work with either automatically.
