4 35mm Slide Scanning Solutions for Your Old Pictures

slide scannerBest Tips for Digitizing 35mm Slides


In today’s day and age, if you ask a teenager what a PowerPoint slide is, chances are they might be able to tell you. If you ask that same teen to describe a projector slide show, chances are they’ll have no idea what you mean.

 

Yes, gone are the days when people would break out the projector and show friends and family the 35mm slides taken on a recent vacation. But just because those days are gone, doesn’t mean those memories are forgotten. In fact, many families have these old slides stored in boxes in the attic, collecting dust.

 

Well, if you happen to be one of these families, you’re in luck. We’ve pulled together the following slide scanner solutions that will get those old images back in use.


Store your physical slides somewhere safe

 

Just like photos, slides are prone to damage as a result of sunlight, temperature, storage methods, and improper handling. You’ll want to make sure you are storing your antique slides somewhere that is temperature controlled, out of the sun, and in an archival quality container. When handling, your hands should be clean or wear gloves made of a non-scratching fiber.

 

Organize slides in a method that works for you

 

Organization of old slides will help the digitizing and preservation process go much quicker. You can sort and catalog your slides by event, date, or the people or places in them. The key is to select an organization that works for you and your collection, and then go from there.

amelia earhartA picture is worth a thousand words, but some pictures might be worth even more than that.

 

In fact, the History Channel recently revealed that a newly resurfaced vintage photo might unlock the mystery surrounding famed pilot Amelia Earhart’s disappearance over 80 years ago.

 

Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan set off on a pioneering flight around the world in 1937. Unfortunately, Earhart and Noonan disappeared somewhere near Howland Island over the central Pacific Ocean.
