Scan photographs, documents or even 35mm negatives and slides, our flatbed scanner can do it. Create digital copies from your old film using our scanners and software.
The scanner must be plugged in to both a power outlet and a USB port on the iMac.
To scan a photo print or a document, place it on the glass scanning surface face-down and aligned with the arrow in the top right corner of the glass.
To scan a negative or positive transparency (eg. a slide) you will need to use one of the film mounts to hold the source transparency
For 35 mm film, choose the film mount with the two tracks running parallel. Insert the 35 mm film into the tracks using the guide channels on the film mount
For slides, choose the mount with four squares (which will fit four slides).
Take the film mount and place it on the scanner glass ensuring that the “pin” at the top of the glass is aligned with the hole on the film mount (there’s only one way to attach this mount). Once the film has been inserted, remove the white protective sheet on the inside of the scanner lid by pulling on the clip at the top of the white sheet. This will allow light to shine through to capture the negative or slide properly.
The rest of the scanning process takes place using the Canon IJ Scan Utitlity on the iMac
Please remember to take your original physical copies with you when finished.
