Above Cloud Nine

Above Cloud Nine

Scanned from a color slide made in… 1982 when I was still a student. The slide was almost lost: washed out, scratched and without chances to get something out. It took me several days to manually restore some of its original qualities. Aside from its sentimental value, this photo remains an example of a lucky shot, taken with a cheap camera without any hope for a good outcome. I would really appreciate ideas on how to restore old slides. As usual, a few words of advice and comments will make a difference. Thank you.

    • Hi Sharon. Thank you for stopping by. I use a Canon CanoScan 8800F with a film (or slide) adapter. The results are good enough to save some old images that otherwise would be lost. Good slides or negatives require minimal post processing but this slide needed more effort.
