    I did read that Kodachrome can cause problems with ICE something to do with its opacity to infrared.

    Re: 35MM Slides - Improve Quality

    While not certain of this, I'll also add another question: Are the slides Kodachrome or are they an E-6 processed film such as Ektachrome, Fujichrome, etc.? I've never scanned any of my Kodachrome slides before, but I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Kodachrome may be more difficult to scan due to the different nature of its emulsion. I can't say that makes too much sense to me, but at the very least it may be helpful to know.

    Regards,

    Hi Warren,

    Give us an example of a fairly bad one.
    Do they have a red cast?
    Are they reversal film or raster prints? (They did that in the 60's!)
    Do you have a film scanner that can hold framed slides?
    Are they "wet" emulsion-to-emulsion copies? (Emulsion on wrong side: wrong autofocus in scanner, put in backwards and flip in PS).
    Are they realy 800?

    35MM Slides - Improve Quality

    I have 800+ slides I want to scan into Photoshop 6. I am fairly new to Photoshop.

    All of these slides are from 1965-1975

    What are the kinds of options can I use in Photoshop to improve the quality of these slides.

    Thanks

    Warren
