Here are three scanning mistakes and what you can do to get better looking slide, negative, photo scans...

Scan Mistake 1: Not Cleaning Your Slides, Negatives, Photos Before You Scan Them

If your scans have too much dust and debris, cleaning them BEFORE you scan them will help a lot. But you need to do this properly or you’ll scratch them. Here’s how...

Use a lint-free cloth, and gently wipe the surface of the slide or photo. DO NOT press down hard, you’ll scratch the surface. To handle negatives, use tweezers so you don’t get your fingerprints on them.

Scan Mistake 2: Saving Your Scans At Low Quality JPEG Image Files

Before you save your scans as JPEG digital image, you’ll need to adjust the “compression” level.

What I mean is, JPEGs are compressed to save hard drive space. But the higher the compression, the lower the image quality.

So you need to check your scanner’s manual regarding JPEG compression levels, or check your File Saving settings. Make sure to change the compression level to the LOWEST setting for the HIGHEST quality.

Scan Mistake 3: Not Getting Help

I know, scanning is frustrating and takes a lot of time. I’ve been there. But after a lot of trial and error, and scanning 7 years for a living, I’m happy to share my scanning “secretes”.

And if you learn to do just ONE scan properly, the rest will be easy.

So I invite you to check out my free slide, negative, and photo scanning tips and advice:
