Scanned from a slide
If you enlarge this one, you can just see a touch of the setting sun on the underside of the balcony. This is a foray into the archives with my slide scanner. It's great to have a way to save the old photos to digital format, but still disappointing as far as the quality goes compared to looking at them with an Agfa Lupe. If anyone has suggestions for getting quality from slides, please let me know. I did tweak it some in Photoshop. I have an ancient version (6.0), mainly because it was free. I got the color about right, but it still seems grainy, and some of my scans have way too much contrast. Are the old slides really that grainy? Have our digital cameras just gotten that much better? Anyway, as I have the time, I hope to post more shots from the slide files. I'd love to hear about anyone's experience with this transformation.
