I get very good results from scanning in a 5" x 7" print and after
editing, and maybe adding a title, or even bringing in other images
to make up a combination, I send a bunch of JPEGs to Elegant Graphics
by ftp (much quicker than email attachments) and the resultant slides
are super. They ask $4 for a pop for JPEGs. Seems it’s now $5.

By very good results I mean when projected at a 600-seat conference
centre the blown-up image starts to have some slight pixelation, esp
seen in the text. In a normal darkened room situation they are fine.
It’s important to treat the JPEG file format with respect. Only use
it for a copy of the final file if you have to upload it somewhere.
For storing and editing I use TIFF format or the native image file
format of my conputer ‘sprite’.
Regarding keeping sharpness of image in the 35mm slide I reasoned it
out this way. For a reasonable printout held right in front of you the
image ought to be at least 300dpi resolution, so I worked out what
distance the slide will be used and aimed for a scanning resolution
which produced a 24mm x 36mm image at 1200 dpi, so when the slide is
projected it will be on the screen at close to the 300 dpi.
