|Wasn't quite sure where to put this, but..|
I'm trying to get my portfolio stored digitally, last night I borrowed a mates scanner (cheers haca!), but every slide I tried came out really dark. We thought the reason for this was that because they're transparencies the light travels through them twice before being picked up by the sensors in the bed, if that makes any sense. Couldn't restore them to their true appearance by tweaking the brightness/contrast etc. either.
Any suggestions? I need to get this done by Sunday, and will go and pay for it if necessary, but it'd be good if I could sort it using what I've got.
