Convert Slides to DVD

Its time you switch from slides to DVDs. Slides are no longer used anywhere and considered obsolete. To pace up with the new era lets convert all your old slides to DVDs. You can convert slides to digital format by following 3 ways:

1. You can use a device for conversion.

For professional slide to DVD conversion we highly recommend ScanCafe, the scanning service used by pro photographers and Pulitzer Prize winners. It’s available to you for only 29 cents an image.

Using device:

Out there in the market you can find several devices for the purpose. Mostly they work by converting the negatives or slides to digital format. They are placed in a try aligned and with just a press of button they are converted and saved to the computer. The device is usually connected with the computer with the help of a USB cable. Certain softwares are developed specifically for the purpose. For a bulk amount of slides these devices do a great job and they are easy to use as well.

Re-photograph the slides:

In case you are owner of a good digital camera and a couple of other supplies such as a light box and graphics software, you can easily take picture of the slide. This can be considered the easiest as well as the cheapest way of conversion. Simply attach your camera to a tripod, now place your slide on the light box and now take a picture of it. And you are done. You can retouch your photograph by using the graphics software if required. This way you can get a nice copy of your photograph in a short period of time.

Scanning your slides:

For scanning slides, get a slide attachment for your scanning device. This will help you to transfer bulk amount of slides to digital format. The best thing about this method is that picture quality is not compromised. Though this method is not considered very good, when it comes to getting the photographs enlarged. But it works well when sending the images through email or for uploading on the internet.
