I've scanned those old slides at 4000 ppi and then attempted to photoshop the output with dismal results. What I've seen online, created by Digmypics (I haven't received the cds as yet)is far better than anything I've been able to do for myself. This was a test. I was so pleased that I will likely have Digmypics scan the remainder of my slides. That brings to mind all the VHS tapes of the family at Christmas over the years, interviews with the Grandparents now gone . . .
