This is a scan from a slide taken in the early 70's I did on my Epson flat bed scanner which has a slide attachment.

I think the key phrase there is that the scanner used "has a slide attachment"!  Can't see any ref. to scanning 35mm slides in the Manual.

Not all scanners can scan slides they need to have a light box above the scanner to shine through the slide, my was attached to the lid and had a cover that had to be removed for scanning slides, sounds more complicated than it is, it is much easier with a standalone slide scanner, you can get one on Amazon fairly cheap.

The attachment is a plastic frame that will take up to four slides on one side or two negative strips on the other, and simply lays on the glass bed. Yes the top cover has to be removed to allow light to project through.

Lidl had one on offer last year for £30, I hesitated at the time but wish I'd bought one now as I have a lot of slides that I'd like to convert. I was surprised that nobody seems to have invented a simple device that can clip on the front of a digital camera.

I sent some slides away to be digitised professionally last year and they cost £1 each.

George: Thanks for the link - an interesting read.

Frankiesays: A golden opportunity missed in Lidl’s then! Hope you don’t have to many slides to digitalise at that price!

I'm not going to pay that kind of money, I had those digitised because they were of my old best mate who I went on holiday with to Spain in 1972 and they were the only pictures of him in existence as a 17 year-old.

I'll look for one on E-Bay.

frankie: Under those circumstances - I too would have happily paid to have the slides professionally copied.
