    Not sure if this will be better here or in hardware.

    I'm looking for comments/suggestions on a negative scanner. Can be an all in one, or a stand alone. Just would like something "easy."

    How many slides ???
    I'm thinking the photo services (like Wall greens) have an automated way to do this ..
    It may be cheaper and easier ... than one at a time by you .. or purchasing the equip.
    Have you got an estimate ??

    I messed with one of the slide scanners once ..
    I would not have wanted to do it myself .. (one at a time)

    I guess that looks good .. I see it has the backlite ..
    But I'm kinda partial to HP .. Just don't load HP's software :D

    I'm thinking the next part of the problem will be fixing the scans.
    Do you have something good .. Like Photoshop Elements ??

    I see the Epson has Elements included .. I wonder which version ??
    Elements can batch process a whole folder .. auto color adjust and other adjustments .. fast.
    Also .. Straitening the scan exactly .. and cropping to a specific size is easy.

    That might make the Epson my first choice .. If I didn't already have Photoshop

    I have Adobe CS4. I'm assuming that should be adequate? Even though I am not sure how to use it :eek: :D Will that do batches too? Or will I be better looking for Elements? I like HP too. Pretty much all I've used...........and I hear you on the software :D

    Overkill works :D I hope :D Now, to figure out how to use it to my benefit :D

    What do you think of the second scanner I linked?

    EDIT: I see you edited after I read......Epson sounds good :) but, I love all those Amazon reviews on the Canon :D

    Sorry ... No experience to help with the hardware .. CS4 will be a different story.
    I'm still using CS2 .. But I can load CS4 or the new CS5

    Ok, cool :) I'll wait to hear from others on the hardware :D Thanks up until now. I know who to find when I need CS4 help, which will be right after I buy the scanner :D

    Lots a PS experts hang out here .. You'll have No Problem...
    Most likely .. It can be set up to run the scanner ..
    skipping the need to load the scanner software ... Especially if it's HP :D
