As a Christmas gift to my family, but mostly my grandmother, I am scanning all her old slides. I bought a little slide scanner on ThinkGeek.com call an ImageLab and it works really well. Only problem is you scan one slide at a time, so far I've scan 549 slides, that's a 1/3 of the slides! My grandfather apparently loved to take photos! He passed away when I was very little, but I inherited his love of photos!
Here is just a few of the scan slides! What do you think? It scans them in at 8x6 300dpi, so it's a good print quality too. I'm going to make a dvd with all the slides, and print some of the really awesome ones. The photo below was taken in Japan in the early 60's.
The tiny blonde haired boy is my dad!
My grandfather retired from the Airforce and had traveled all over the world. Unfortunately, I don't know where all the photos were taken. I can figure out which ones are Japan, Vietman, and Thailand, but the rest I have no idea! My grandma may know, but I'm trying to surprise her with this so it's tricky!
I haven't been very crafty lately, but I have been productive ;)
Have any of you ever done this? I keep scanning the slides in backwards, then I have to flip them all in photoshop! Anyone have any tricks or useful slide info? lol I'm very new to this!
