Missed something, I think


#1

Hi,

I missed “Several companies are mentioned later in regard to
professional slide archiving, storage and presentation supplies.”,
was that on your site? I am interested in that and any
other ideas on archiving.

Respectfully,

The you are looking for is in the’ PR Tools’ article
in the Business section on the topics page:

http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/tree.cgi

The ‘PR Tools’ article is an extract from the book ‘Small Scale
Photography’, from which the other photo tips articles are also
extracted.

You can archive your slides at a slide archiving company, at some
cost digitally (runs $8.00-$15.00 per 20-35 meg per file (or
slide)-eek). If you are only going to put them on the web or a
computer screen Kodak CDROM does a good job (but you won’t get them
out again at the same resolution the orgiinal slide was (cost-about
$1.50 each).

You can also take an original set, place them in archival plastic
slide boxes, put them inside a ‘Tupperware’ container, shrink wrap
that and keep the whole thing in the dark in a cool, not humid spot
in your basement-you need cool stable temperatures. This is
supposed to do a reasonable job of archiving on the cheap. Charles

Oops, I made a mistake,not ‘shrink wrapped’ as above but instead I
meant ‘vacuum packed’. You can have items vacuum packed at service
companies and some food suppliers. Charles
