    Morning Glory Pool, Yellowstone National Park

    This photo is from among the 50 or so slides that I recently discovered that I had never scanned. Captured in July 2007. I actually reduced the saturation during post-processing.

    The larger version needs to be viewed to be appreciated. Great color and detail.

    Indeed it does. Wonderful.

    Mike - What do you use for scanning? I've got quite a few slides from the old days and have often thought about scanning them.

    Thanks, guys!

    Donald: I sent the slides to ScanCafe.com, an American company that probably would not be practical for you unless they have a European website and shipping point. The equipment they use is explained here.

    That information about the equipment actually explains something I was wondering about. When I sent my 2000 or so slides to them more than a year ago, their website mentioned that they were using the Nikon 9000 scanners for 35mm slides. Now they apparently use Noritsu scanners and they explicitly praise them for their "tremendous sharpness." I was wondering why the sharpening settings that I used on the scans that I post-processed a couple years ago are way too aggressive for this most recent batch. (I instructed ScanCafe not to do any sharpening or any other post-processing that they would normally do.) This new information explains it.
