Does anyone know if it's possible to take digital images
and have them converted to slides? And does anyone know of any
company that does that?
Yes Jeanne it’s possible, and yes I’ve used a company in the US
called " Slides.com " an online site/company where you can order
slides from digital images…
It’s a great option when you really need a slide and only have a
digital image of the item, taken with either a digital camera or a
scanner. Though I believe that a digital camera might produce a
better image than a scanner, both are in digital so both should
I sent 6 images taken as tiff. files which turned into 9 MG files,
taken with a friends Nikon Cool Pix 995 - 3.5 mega-pixel camera.
(Digital images when saved in tiff. are a good deal larger files
than jpeg format files.) Slides.com will also take jpeg. files and on
their website they have outline several options for sending images
to them, and a couple of methods to upload the images to them…
Uploading my images was pretty easy with a bit of telephone guidance
from the people at Slides.com who are very friendly and helpful! My
digital images reproduced to slides very well and I have applied to
several shows with them, with good result. I figure that my recently
purchased 8 Mega-Pixel Nikon Coolpix 8700 digital camera will
produce even better results.
