Back in the days before digital photography was the norm, there were generally 2 methods of processing film: prints, and slides.
Way back in the late 70's my husband and I ... (we weren't married yet at the time) , preferred slides to prints and after all these years we still have them stored away in a box. Unfortunately our old projector broke down years ago and it has been ages since the last time we viewed them.
I thought that the best thing was to convert them to digital so I bought myself a slide scanner and started scanning them .
To my dismay I found out that many of the slides had turned to a reddish hue and others were fading, this meant that I would have had to do some restoration on them. This proved to be a long process since I had to edit each slide individually. The task wasn't an easy one but I managed to save some which seemed totally lost at first glance. Here are just 3 of the ones I managed to restore up to now but I still have hundreds to do and it will take me weeks to scan them all and restore the damaged ones .
The pictures show the original, almost ruined slides and the restored, digital version. I am quite satisfied with my work and glad that I saved them just in time.
