Slide Scanning FAQ’s
We scan various formats of slides like Standard Slides, Kodachrome Slides, Glass Slides, Medium Format Slides, Ektachrome Slides. The sizes we scan include 35mm, 110, 126, 127 slides.
We scan standard slides at 3000 DPI. 3000 DPI is the most optimal resolution to scan 35mm film formats. Any resolution above 3000 DPI gives a higher file size without much improvement in the quality. For medium format slides, we scan at 1200 DPI.
Yes, we do scan medium format slides. We scan 120/220 medium format slides, 35mm, 110, 126, 127 slides.
We generally use a cloth to clean the slides before scanning. Sometimes, we use special liquid to remove the mold. If the mold is extreme, we use restoration process to remove the mold on digital files.
Most slides will bear a brand logo or the phrase “this side facing the screen.” It is this side of the film that the scanner detector should read. The actual insertion procedure will vary from scanner to scanner.
At ScanCorner, we provide free manual color correction and restoration for each slide. This is part of our process and is included in our price. Our restoration experts spend 3 minutes on each image to restore the colors, adjust the brightness and remove dust & scratches. We use Adobe Photoshop Elements editing software to do the restoration work.
We do scan glass or glass mounted slides. We remove the glass frame, put the slide in the plastic slide holder and scan the slide. Sometimes, we scan the slides as they are and use Adobe Photoshop Elements to restore the scanned slides.
Most slides are of standard size and the photo scanners are designed to suit this shape. So, for standard slides no cropping happens. But there are some non-standard slides like a rectangular negative fit into the standard slide. In such cases, photo scanner crops the image as they aren’t designed to scan these non-standard negatives. At ScanCorner, we don’t scan the whole frame and manually crop the image part. This way, we ensure that the slides won’t get cropped.
Yes, we do scan and restore each slide. When you scan a slide at a very high resolution, you can find lots of dust and scratches on the slide. Even after employing Digital ICE, there are still some dust and scratches left on the slide. We use Adobe Photoshop Elements to restore the slides. We remove the scratches, perform color correction, do brightness and shadow adjustment on the slides. Our experts spend at least 3 minutes to restore each and every slide.
There are multiple ways to safely pack slides to ship to us. The easiest solution is to pack all slides into one or several plastic bags, put them into a sturdy carton box and ship to us. Sorting the slides can consume lot of time. So, we suggest you to ship those slides to us and after scanning, sort the digital files into various folders.
