I’ve posted several photos of scanned slides lately, so I thought it would be fun to show where the project is being done. The trash bag is the fourth one I’ve filled with discarded slides, along with several smaller bags. The shoebox is one of 42 similar boxes full of slides dating back as far as 1965. The scanner is an Epson Perfection V800 that scans 12 slides at a time and does a remarkable job removing dust spots. I use Vuescan software and an electronic dust blower, and have a slide database that dates back to the pre-windows DOS operating system days. The database needs to be updated whenever I delete or add slides to the scanned collection. So far, I’ve scanned over 4100 slides and discarded, probably, 40,000 slides and am working on my 18th shoebox. It has been a ton of work, but brought back a lot of great memories. Please excuse the messy workspace.
