Said Baldy:
Very interesting subject. For my wife's bday, I secretly collected old slides and prints from her parents and scanned them to produce a photo album that goes back to when she was a baby. http://mom.smugmug.com/gallery/172/2/5510

I thought the results, for the most part, were pretty good considering the sad state of the slides, being faded and dirty.

We did it ourselves with an Epson flatbed scanner with a filmstrip attachment. Half the key was adjusting the photos in Photooshop afterwards. But it was a multi-day project.

We've talked about offering such a service as part of smugmug or forming a relationship with service bureau that does it, but no decision yet.

The scanner can be had relatively cheaply if you're interested in that option.
Baldy, if you're gonna mess with old pics big time, you HAVE to look at Applied Science Fiction's Digital Ice, Roc & Gem. I was _very_ wary about auto-whatever, but my new Nikon scanner has them and they just blew me away. Amazing!

Some parts (Ice) need specific hardware, but Roc is available as a standalone (plugin to PS?) app. It really does work. Cut my post-scanning editing times over 30% just with Ice alone. Big from me.

Great stuff, Roberto. Many thanks. I actually scanned most of our stuff with a Nikon film scanner (LS-2000, now discontinued) and ICE turned on for handling dust & scratches, and it was effective. I had other problems with that scannner, tho, like banding and negatives jamming that eventually caused me to use it only when I have to.

goddamn that sucks

G'z...And that was originally a 3.2 megapixel camera shot...

So, I have a few questions...

How do I maintain a little bit of quality and how do I know that I've reduced the size to an acceptable 160kb?

I'm using that Irfran view and have "resized" to about 80%...how do I know that I'm under that alloted size limit?

Also, any tips on doing this on Photoshop? I've used "save as" and then brought the quality down to about a 0,1, or 2 but have to guess if the size is alright as the bottom ratio that tells you kb/modem speed is often wrong (its actually too high when it says its below 160kb)....

Thanks

After you've resized it, navigate to the file in Windows Explorer and right click on the file name. Select properties and it'll give you the file size. Generally, once you get them down to 4 or 500 pixels across, they're about the right size.

hmmm

Even after I've reduced it to about 400 pixels across, the file is still at about 280kb....

Making it smaller than 400 pixels across really makes the picture look too small for posting (regardless of how many kb it is)....

Ok mate...im an idiot on a computer but this is what i do. I take a pic on a 1 to 2 meg camera. D/load it & open it with photoshop. I open P/Shop & adjust size.

The original size says 3.01M @ 72 pixels/inch..1184 wide.

So i reduce its width to 600 pixels & this now gives me 792 k (it was 3.01M) I save it at that size & when i reopen it & look at its size it is 100 kb & it posts well.

Hope that is of some help but keep in mind i am a lot better at digging holes than computer stuff.
