July 4th

The flag, a roaring cannon and an old fort. How patriotic! The photo was taken in the 1960's at Fort Wayne in Detroit, Michigan. Fort Wayne was built in the 1840's and still stands today!
Happy 4th of July everyone!

ookpik - I'd be interested in your thoughts on the easiest (read cheapest) way to scan negatives on a regular scanner.

Hi Kurt,

You will need two more items that I’m sure you have.

1. A piece of glass smaller than the scanner glass but bigger than the negative.

2. A light source – a desk lamp works fine.

Step 1 – Remove or prop up the lid of the scanner.

Step 2 – Put the negative on the scanner glass.

Step 3 – Put the other piece of glass on top of the negative.

Step 4 – Shine the light from the light source on the negative.

Step 5 – Hit scan and try not move!

Good luck! I used this method with great success before I purchased the "proper" equipment.
