Millvale1 Posted March 24, 2022 Share Posted March 24, 2022 I'm new to Alamy and part of my eventual submission will be several hundred 35mm slide images, though they will have to be scanned/copied. I've had a few scanned in the past and included a few in a recent submission. At least one got QC'd out -- or all of them. Don't know. My non-scanned images have all gotten through QC. These slides were razor sharp and saturated to begin with, shot with Zeiss glass on Kodachrome 25 and Velvia, and the scans were presumably high res. But grain (noise) is definitely apparent. Hence, that is why, I believe, people seem to be opting for camera-based copying vs. scans. So my questions are: 1) Is there now an accepted or more commonly-used slide copying device or product that can be used across camera lines? (I have Sony mirrorless) 2) Are there companies that have been able to produce 35mm slide scans that will meet Alamy QC predictably? 3) Are there companies that can do the camera-based copying that people are talking about? I'd rather have someone do it, frankly. Thanks for all responses. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
