When embarking on a scanning job, it’s best to use the highest quality of original available. In the case of slides, the slide itself is the highest quality available and, in the case of prints, it’s the film negative. Both slide and film negatives are essentially the same material and can be handled the same way.
We are living in a digital age and preserving for the future means several things - converting negatives to digital format is just one of them. Whether you have negatives from your childhood, your parent’s collection, or a recent acquisition from the famous Beatle’s auction (shouldn’t we all be so lucky), you can convert your negatives easily at home or for larger collections, enlist the help of a negative scanning service. Bob Dylan says it well, “The times they are a changin” - you don’t want to be left behind with your memories on a medium that is no longer accessible.
