Scan your dad's vintage slides into digital images
Scanning is NOT about preserving... it's about uncovering hidden family memories

Discover The Story That Lies Hidden In Your Slides, Negatives, and Photos

By scanning your old images, you are discovering your family story. People names, places, dates, memories that have been forgotten. They are probably your most important possession.

Think of your old images this way...

They hold historical value. Just like some old buildings or some historical images of famous people, your old slides, negatives, and photos are just as valuable. That's because they have a story. And by scanning those images, you are discovering that story. And by scanning, you are documenting that story so the next generation won't forget.

This is why it's important to scan them right, the first time.

And, what I'm going to help you do today is, show you how to scan your images into high resolution, high quality digital images -- in half the time.

Ready to learn a new skill that you never thought you'd be good at?

Great... Let's go, then!

A Little Mistake That Cost Me 56 Hours Worth of Scanning

Here's a quick story of how a scan project that should have taken me 16 hours to finish, took 56 hours.

The moral of this story is, if you're a person who wants to do things right, then listen to what I did wrong, here...

Back in 2005, I had a small scan project for an artist who was going to use the scans for his art exhibit.

How to scan slides negatives photos into digital
Scan used with only scan software vs. scan with NO scan software, but with Photoshop

To me the digital images looked good. But to him, he hated all of them.

Why?

Because, the scans didn't look anything like his originals. He knew his art intimately. He had an eye to spot the difference between the originals and the scans.

So, I had to go back and re-scan them. Not once. But for a total of 4 times.

This is what I want to help you avoid: wasting time with your scan project. If you find yourself rescanning all the time, you might quit your scan project.

Or worse, you might settle for low quality scans. That would be a shame, because there is an easy way to get high quality scans in half the time.

So, what was my big mistake? Why did I have to keep rescanning? How can you learn from my mistake?

That's next....

D. Neal liked my new method of scanning so much, he helped me find new customers

This "Fool Idea" Helped Me Get Higher Quality Scans

Remember my story about the artist and his scan project?

What I did wrong was this...

I fixed the image BEFORE I did the scan. Meaning, I used the scan software to adjust the colours, exposure, lighting, dust and scratch. Then pressed the scan button.

No matter how many times I adjusted the scans, they still came out looking bad.

Why?

Scan software isn't perfect. When you adjust the image in a preview scan window, it may look great. But once the scanner starts processing your adjustments, the digital image looks nothing like the preview scan or the original slide, negative, photos.

Scan software vs. Photoshop -- scan software isn't perfect

This was my "fool idea". Almost by accident, I decided not to use the scan software to fix a scan... and just get a "natural" scan. Meaning, no colour, lighting, dust fixes.

Then I decided to tinker with the bad scan in Photoshop, GIMP, and Lightroom.

And I was shocked at what sort of quality I got. It quickly hit me that I figured out a new method of scanning that is far superior than the old way.

The answer was so obvious! Professional artists and photographers always use software like Photoshop, GIMP, CorelDRAW, Lightroom to fix digital images.

Why not scans, too!?

Proof That The New Scanning Method is Better Than The Old One

Again, the idea is simple: Instead of editing the image before the scan, do it AFTER.

This little secret method of scanning is what has helped me become a professional scanner for 11 years.

I probably told you this before, but I've been scanning professionally since 2005. I've helped multi national companies, museums, pro sports teams, governments, book publishers, and thousands of families with their scan projects.

You will learn the exact same scan system that I use

The reason I'm telling you this is because of my "fool idea" of editing the digital images after the scan is what attracted all those companies, organizations and people to me.

People tried scanning. They weren't getting the quality they thought they get. So they tried me out. And my scans looked 10 to 100x better than they could get. That's why they hired me. That's why I get good word of mouth.

Also, I use this system to scan 1000 images in 5 days -- and still maintain the highest quality possible.

And in a moment, I'll share with you my exact scan system I've been using professionally to scan 1000 images in 5 days.


This New Method of Scanning Is Catching On...

Also, I'm not the only one that supports this new scanning method.

Hasselblad makes scanners that are priced at $26,500. They too are proponents of editing the digital images AFTER the scan. And have a built in workflow to let you edit your scans after.


How To Do Wonders With A $150 Scanner and Inexpensive Software

So, what can you do? Do you need to buy expensive software? Do you need to buy expensive scanners? Do you need to spend 4 years learning graphic design?

Nope.

I'll show you how to do wonders with a $150 scanner. And you don't need to buy expensive software -- in fact, you can use free software. You don't need to learn anything technical. You'll learn what took me 11 years to learn, in a very short time.

It Took Me 11 Years To Perfect Scanning -- And You're Going To Learn It In an Evening

What I'm about to share with you took me 11 years of trial and error, lots of mistakes, lots of wasted free time to figure out.

You don't need to spend 11 years learning this. You can do it an evening.

You don't need to buy expensive scanners. In my examples you'll see soon, I use a $150 scanner to prove my point.

You don't need to buy expensive software. You can use free software.

After scanning over 931,000 slides, negatives, photos since 2005, I've honed my scanning skills -- and I want to share with you what I've learned.

How To Get Higher Quality Scans And Improve Your Productivity So You Finish Your Scan Project Twice As Fast


Here's a break down of the Scanshop System: Complete Scan Training Program...

Sample pages in the Scanshop Ebook

1. Double Your Productivity By Making A Change To Your Workflow

In the first section, you'll be introduced to what I believe is a powerful set of methods to help you double your productivity. Let me explain...

  • The old method of scanning was invented by scanner brands and marketers to sell more scanners
  • If you ever tried scanning, you know that what they promise in their marketing is NOT what actually happens in real life
  • There is NO one-button you press, and presto, you get quality scans every time
  • Their system was made to sell more scanners, and not help you improve your productivity
  • So instead, you'll discover a new, innovative scanning method designed by a person that has been scanning almost every day for 10 years
  • We'll cover how to eliminate relying on your scanner and start developing your own personal skills at scanning so you get quality scans every time, and control your efficiency
  • It's easy to learn, easy to remember, and best of all you'll see improvements in your scanning time and quality right away

After you master a better workflow, a smarter method of scanning, you'll then go onto part two...

Sample pages in the Scanshop Ebook

2. Top Ten Familiar Scanning Troubles -- Which Do You Want To Overcome?

In the second part of the scan training, you'll get a very important lesson. You'll see how your scanner messes up your scans. In my 10 years of scanning, I've noticed a pattern. There is usually 8 to 10 issues with a scans colours, lighting, and noise. Not matter if it's a slide, negative, or photo scan.

Why bother learn this? Because...

  • If you know what the 10 scan problems are, you can spot issues faster
  • In an instant you'll start noticing how your scanner messes up colours, lighting, and noise
  • You'll develop an intuitive feel with every scan... and when you open it up to fix it, you'll know EXACTLY what you need to fix
  • This is how you improve your productivity... you don't rely on scanner software... you rely on your brain... you rely on your skills... you rely on your efficiency... you rely on your intuition
  • If you don't know what the 10 scans problems are, you'll be sitting there all day tinkering with scanning software not knowing where to start and what to do
  • Don't put your trust in your scanner software... take control by knowing exactly what goes wrong when scanning... take control of your productivity so you can improve your efficiency

I've boiled down very complicated, technical issues when it comes to scanning into 8 – 10, bite-sized chunks that are easy to remember. My goal is to make your scan project go faster. My goal in this part is so you develop an intuitive feel when scanning. And this will help you become more efficient. If you rely on your scan software, you won't develop this intuition... and you'll waste time tinkering around.

Have a peek at what some of my students wrote after going through the training:


Konrad, thank you for this.  It has been very helpful.  I am beginning to scan in slides going back to the late 60s.  These slide are important to me and you've helped me scan them correctly.
Dan L.


I appreciate all your help, and thank you soooo much...love, love love all your other tips.
Laura


Thank you for your tutorials. Dusty slides have been my nemesis but I've used the clone stamp to get rid of the most offensive bits. Yes, I try to clean the slides before I scan because you are correct, you don't notice the really fine dusty bits when you look at the slide with the naked eye. Just wanted to say Thanks for your advice. It's appreciated.
Matt D


Hello Konrad,   I have read your PDF guide to scanning and want to thank you for your really helpful work. Like you, I feel that scanning the negatives as a pure scan, then adjusting in GIMP or Photoshop would be the best way to make the adjustments.
John F.


Konrad, thank you for a very good treatment of scanning of slides, negatives, and photos.
Jim


Thanks for the great tips on scanning.  I just bought an Epson 600 scanner to scan all of my 35 year old slides into digital format.  Your book is by far the most helpful out there, especially since your examples are shown with the Epson scanner software.  Thanks again for your helpful tips.
John


Thanks for the great book on scanning.  I was going to buy photoshop but if gimp works as well I will try that.
