I have the lide80 too, though i haven't tried scanning 10yr old photos. You are scanning the photo print i presume? Maybe u want to post some examples up for viewing?

so u r scanning the negatives and NOT the photo print then?

"www.photobucket.com" -> get a free account there unless u already have a linkable gallery somewhere. Try searching for "how to upload pictures", they can explain better than me. :embrass:

Possible reasons I can think of:

1. Film detoriate over time. Colours will go off-scale, and your decade-old films probably suffered such a fate.

2. Your system isn't properly colour-managed, so getting the right colours can be a problem.

Your scan looks a little discoloured at certain portions. How did you keep your negatives?
