Device for Vx 2000 for Slide and paper photos
I am searching for an easy and quick way to digitize slides and Paper photos ...How could I use my VX 2000...copy stand? Music Stand? Are there
any adapters available? Thanks for telling me how you might solve this problem. I am trying to avoid slow, and tedius scanners...I will need to crop and animate these photos which I have software for... like Imaginate and
Photo shop Elements...Maybe I should use a digital camera?

When I first started doing this I used my digital camera to take pictures of a slides projected onto a screen. It worked well and was easy. I manually adjusted the camera for each shot using the computer to preview, adjust, and take the shot while the camera was connected to he computer. It was a good workflow .

I then used my scanner to compare and the scanner came out better. So now I always use the scanner. I use a light bar so I can place 12 slides per scan.

I find the quality is worth the time.

Thanks, Light bar?
Thanks for your response...what do you mean by a light bar...are your putting
many slides on scanner glass at a time?

Yes, we put 12 slides on the scanner. The light bar is sold at BH Photo.
At 1st it is tricky to use but it works well once it is set up right.
