Tip A Day #8
Many of us have film negatives lying around so here’s a quick and easy way to convert those to a usable digital format!
Convert Film to Digital
- PC or Mac
- Image Editing Software
- Thin, non-fibrous paper
- Phone or Tablet
Place film on scanner, shiny side down (aka emulsion side up.)
Place thin paper on top of film.
Place tablet/phone on brightest setting face down on paper over the film.
NOTE: For best results, use a blank website/app with a bright screen.
Use favorite image editing software to scan.
This option is usually found within the File > Import option.
Scan as hi-res as possible for best results!
(Suggested: 1200 DPI)
Don’t forget to invert the colors!
Enjoy your new high-res digital copy of your photos!
