    JPEG or JPEG + Raw & convert to DNG + JPEG?

    JPEG or JPEG + Raw & convert to DNG + JPEG?

    So I'm scanning using a digital camera about 30K 35mm slides as described in the thread on lessons on scanning here. The company that makes the SlideSnap recommends only saving JPEG files for the process. They say that for most applications the size savings of the JPEG outweigh any potential...

    Lessons from the Field of scanning old film archives

    And yet another update on the huge family archive/scanning project. As of Monday, 11 March I finished scanning all the 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch film both negatives and slides. Average time to scan and rename was 4.5 minutes per image. All these items were saved as TIFF files and have been imported...

    Lessons from the Field of scanning old film archives

    Yes, I'm down to less than 150 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 B&W negatives and less than 130 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 color ones. I still have over 200 2.5in x 1.6 inch B&W negatives that I have no film holder for at all that I'm trying to figure out how to scan. Haven't started on the 35mm film at all yet. I have...

    Lessons from the Field of scanning old film archives

    I know this is old but a few more tips and tricks and even some solutions to the terrible support from VueScan for scanning items in something other than his default order. My film holders for the 2 1/4 inch square films hold 6 frames. The scan order is down 3 frams then across then down 3...

    Tethered Live View still not supported?

    I was pretty sure I'd seen somewhree that the latest version of LR Classic allowed for live view when tethering a camera but I can't seem to find anything but a 2016 statement from Adobe that LR does not support live view. Can anyone confirm or did I just missread something. I'm trying to...

    VueScan Woes

    So I gave it 2 more tries. I am persistent... This is what I sent "If another program supported my scanner I would change. Is it really that difficult to please provide an answer or a set of steps to make this work? I’ve tried your suggestions and clearly you believe this is possible but I...

    VueScan Woes

    Got all teh slides scanned. Thos I ca put in the order VueScan wants and so get them numberd correctly barring missing slide numbers. However, I still don't have a solution for the scanning in order properly described at the beginning of my post for the negatives that are 2 frames from teh...

    Lessons from the Field of scanning old film archives

    Roll numbers came from handwritten notes from either my mother or my father, both of whom have been dead for over 20 years now. New ones I've created myself after careful verification sometimes by piecing the negative (which were all hand cut into frames) by lining up the cut edges like puzzle...

    Lessons from the Field of scanning old film archives

    Just a quick note on a few things I've learned over the last few weeks scanning lots of old slides and negatives. When sorting out various film rolls(my file naming scheme has a field for roll number) get as close as you can, then scan into a working folder using VueScan’s default numbering...

    Testing backup and restore

    CarbonCopy Cloner's built in advanced option to find and replace corrupted files. For me the more automated the backups are the better.

    Testing backup and restore

    I run several backup systems. First is Time machine that does incremental backups every hour alternating between our RAID server and an external hard drive. Then I do an automatic bootable backup every night of my main computer. Monthly bootable backups on additional hard drives. One of those is...

    which photo-sharing site?

    Thanks for that post. I'm also looking at some way to share some fo the historical family photos I am scanning with other memebrs of the family. Not public but accessible,. I hadn't even thought of some of your issues and am glad you posted that there are more things to consider.

    Can't find photos imported!

    I don't run on Windows but it sounds like you thought the photos themselves would be included in your LightRoom catalog? If so that is a mistake. It's best to think of lightRoom as an index into an existing file system of photos. The photos themselves, the actual image files, are elsewhere on...

    VueScan Woes

    Update on the status. First off I purchased this book : "The VueScan Bible: Everything You Need to Know for Perfect Scanning" by Sascha Steinhoff. Not as useful as Victoria's books in terms of really explaining things but at least a whole lot better than the on-line manual. First step was to...

    CC Missing or Damaged EVERY reboot

    I tried all the various checksum stuff on LR and LR itself was not the problem. The issue was and occasionally still is, with the Creative Cloud App. I did nothing to fix it but it has gone down from every time I boot up to about once every 2 weeks. I reboot my machine every day as I do not...

    VueScan Woes

    No actually I can't deal with EpsonScan at all due to the time issues. It's dabsond who uses EpsonScan. I'm still trying to get VueScan to work the way I need it to as that looks like my best alternative to use my old scanner with my newer machine.

    VueScan Woes

    My problem with EpsonScan is that with no corrections, nothing the scan SW is doing a scan takes over an hour compared to 15 minutes or less using VueScan. But if I can't fix the automatic naming/numbering problem then I will spend that much time fixing filenames.

    VueScan Woes

    I'm trying to test using VueScan running my older Epson4870 Photo Scanner for my big project. Initial tests with slides seemed promising so I moved on to attempting to test scanning the 2.25 inch B&W negatives. Here are the steps I’ve done and the results Input tab Professional scan to file...

    Anyone have an Epson V600 scanner?

    I've bene extremely frustrated trying to do what I thought was a simple task. The tech support is terrible. I'll post on another thread in case you have some hints.

    Anyone have an Epson V600 scanner?

    Thanks for the suggestions. VueScan is powerful and nerdy is an understatement :-) I did testing using VueScan and my MacBook Air Laptop since I could carry it over to the guest house easily. Timings for this test: 8 Slides using Standard Options Preview at 150 Correct colors...

    Anyone have an Epson V600 scanner?

    My own photography went downhill once I went digital. Now it's all snaps on my phone <g> There are actually very few prints and those I've got covered with my existing Epson 4870 scanner. The biggest collection is the color 35mm slides currently estimated at about 20K slides between me, my...
