Photographers and Artists

Trannies to digital format?

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

That begs the question - if your trannies are dirty, what's the best way (if any) to clean them?

Don't think there is a safe way to clean trannies, especially after they have been mounted - Alan, do you know of any?

There are software (e.g. ICE, which comes with most slide scanners) and hardware techniques (double scans with different settings, looking for surface artefacts that don't appear in both scans) for trying to detect and eliminate dirt (typically surface dust & hairs) - both at scan time and in image editors. How effective they are will depend on what the contaminantion consists of. The biggest problem with my 60-year-old slide colection is black spots which are probably dust that has become ingrained in the emulsion in hot, humid tropical weather.

No, I don't know of any good method to clean emulsion. Seems like an Internet search may turn something up?
Don't forget, there's much going on at the main site: http://www.britishexpat.com

Yeah, but most likely I'll just leave the "problem" for another five years and then wonder about it.
