Preserving the Past

In Studio 300 there are two items that are great for preserving the past and restoring what you may have thought to be lost: digital scanners that handle both negatives and slides. Now that old box of slides that has been collecting dust in the attic can be brought to Studio 300 and scanned into the computer to create a digital copy of your memories.

Both scanners will scan 35mm mounted slides and 35mm film negatives. The Epson v600 scanner can do up to four mounted slides in one scan and even includes some correction capabilities, such as color correction and dust removal. The OpticFilm 8200i scanner does one slide at a time but gives you far more control with their Silverfast software, and that allows you to go in depth with the various tools that it offers.

Of course once you have your digital copy of your slide or negative you can then take it one step further and use iPhoto or Photoshop to finalize and clean up your scanned image. As you can see in the images below preserving your past memories has never been so easy.

This is the final product of my scan, with some Photoshop magic this picture will now be ready to go up on my wall.
