    Default some questions to ask the pros. digital and darkroom.

    Guys and ladies.

    recently tried moving into slides and the results are very promising to me so far. at least i havent lost my touch..

    however i have some problems recently and i hope i can receive some valuable advices from the experts here.

    1) i wanted to achieve a border where by it looks like a flim. (when u walk on the streets, i am sure u will see pple use exposed slides, scanned to a big size and use it as some sort of a decoration. which i think its realli cool.) i tried scanning my velvia, but no avail ? and i hope to add in some BnWs from my portfolio. so it could make my work look alittle more interesting. but hw to get the borders ??

    so prolly some help here ??

    2) issit possible to scan slides into the computer using normal scanner ? coz i am now using a sucky canon fb310. which is soo ancient. so maybe some advices ?

    you will need a flatbed scanner or you can send it for a drum scan
    scan once and use over and over.

    Get a real dedicated film scanner, a normal FB scanner can never show the true quality of slides.

    I tried to scan my 120 slides using my fb scanner and an inverted lightbox... doesn't work as well... so for the time being u have to ask the shop to scan lor... then source for cheap film scanners
