3 Simple Ways to Digitize Your 35mm Slides

Last Updated :

Digital photography greatly revolutionized the world of images and films. Before the advent of digital photography, small transparent pieces of film in a cardboard sandwich were used for processing films. Many of professional photographers took photographs and developed them in the form of 35mm slides. These slides were then seen either with the help of projected on a screen with the help of a 35mm slide projector. With the advent of technology, many of these slides either became obsolete or found themselves in storehouses where they were discarded. However, now with the help of some new softwares these slides can be easily be digitized.

There are some ways in which these slides can be digitized. Some of these ways are as follows:


From Google:

There are numerous websites available online those are quite efficient in digitizing your 35mm slides. These companies offer high-quality services and can deliver the scan that have a state of art clarity. While employing the services of these companies always make sure that the price they offer is reasonable. Also make sure that they deliver the products on time.

Using 35MM Slide Scanner:

You can alternatively buy a 35mm slide scanner if you have slides in bulk. No doubt, the online options offer some quality in their products, yet they can never match the level of satisfaction that one gets in doing the work himself or herself. The advantage of this approach is that you can avoid scanning pictures which you are uncomfortable sharing with a complete stranger. Scanning the slides by yourself gives you the benefit of some privacy with your photos. You just need to install the scanner and start scanning your images. After scanning, you can save them in your computer in any desired folder. However, before buying a scanner you should take care that it matches with your computer configuration. You do not want to sit down to scan your weekend pictures of that summer of ’97 only to realize that your scanner is not compatible with your PC’s windows configuration.

Take a Picture:

You can shoot your picture again. For doing this, just set up your slide on the projector screen and digitally take a photo of the screen. Though a little bit of resolution may be compromised still it gives you the option of saving your pictures and slides digitally.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
