Have 100's of 35mm color slides. Want to scan onto Iomega 100mb disks then print my
favorites.
Bought a little HP 35mm slide adapter but scans at 1:1 size. Enlarging to 4x5" size with
any Photo editor yields blocky pixels image. Saw a passing remark somewhere of a HP
"Lighted" 35mm adapter but cannot find the product for sale, even online HP store.

Seems like there should be a device to lay on my flat bed scanner, hold one slide, project
it on a frosted focal plane in 4x5 size so it could be scanned into my puter, then saved on
my Iomega disk, then printed on my HP PhotoSmart-1115 printer.

Any guidance is welcome.
Thanks,
Jim.

The slide must be backlighted for adequate scanning, so the scanner must
be designed specifically for slide scanning. The scanner should support
high resolution, at least (IMO) 1200 dpi for a "reasonable" scan for low
resolution uses like jpg for web or projection. Much greater scanning
resolution is needed for printing, depending on the print size. Check

....also comp.periphs.scanners is a good place to look for information on
scanners, techniques, etc. Comp.periphs.printers gets the printing side
of scanning.
