Converting transparencies and prints to Jpeg

Postby KirstyC » Thu Oct 28, 2021 12:15 pm

Hi all,

I have acquired a large number of my father's and grandfather's transparencies (both were members of the Forest of Dean Camera Club) plus family prints.

I'd like to share these with remaining family members as jpegs.

What is the best way to achieve this? I'm prepared to invest in scanning equipment unless anyone has some kit I can borrow or a better suggestion.

Many thanks
Kirsty

Hi,

I have a negative/slide scanner you can borrow if you're interested? As for scanning prints I suggest a flatbed scanner or if you have one use the scanner on an all-in-one device. Both will offer the option of scanning as jpegs.

Another option is to have a "copy stand", which basically enables you to point a camera down to photograph a print. I could obtain one for you at zero cost [donation to the club appreciated]. Let me know if you're interested. mail@colinwalls.com
