Description

These mounted slides from your digital photos are the first choice for use in slide projectors and decorative slide lights.

The 35mm photographic film slides are supplied mounted in 1.8mm thick, 50mm x 50mm CS glassless plastic slide mounts. They can be used with all straight and rotary slide magazines available in the market including CS, LKM, DIN, Universal, Agfa, Reflecta, Braun, Pradovit, Hanimex, Paximat and Kodak Carousel holding 40/50/60/80/100/120 slides. They incorporate the anti-spill feature if your magazine is capable.

When projecting place the mount so that the lighter side faces the lamp and the dark side faces the screen (ensures the image is the right way around and reduces heat absorption).

NOTE: These are now mounted in 1.8mm plastic mounts – the 2mm GePe 7011 mounts we used to use were discontinued some years ago and we have exhausted stocks.

Cropping options

35mm slides have an image dimension ratio of 3:2. Many compact digital cameras have a squarer ratio than this, or you may have deliberately cropped your image to something of your chosing. By default we don’t crop your image to fit the 35mm frame – any excess left and right (for a squarish image) or top and bottom (for a thin landscape image) is automatically filled in with black. When projected you don’t see the black bars of course – black is the absence of light – and all you see is your image the way you created it.

However, if you don’t want this then when you order your slides you have a choice of ‘Crop to fill frame’. We will then crop the image (which we will do by eye to avoid inappropriate cropping of your image) so that the full slide area is utilised. Note that images are never stretched or distorted to make them fit, just cropped.

Cropping in Photoshop

If you would rather ‘crop to fit’ yourself, then accurate cropping in Photoshop is easy and you can greatly speed up working with a lot of files by making use of presets.

select crop tool
Select the Crop tool

select 2-3
In the drop-down dialogue box choose 2:3. By default the cropping box is portrait.

flip ratio
If your image is landscape then click the ‘reverse’ button and the box rotates

adjust crop
Now click and hold on a corner and you can drag the cropping rectangle around, locked in 2:3 proportions at all times. When you are happy hit the return/enter key and your work is done. ‘Save as’ the file to a new name so that your new cropped version doesn’t overwrite the original.

create preset
You can save this crop setting so that you can return to it at any time – just name it something useful. You will see we have a couple of presets set up for 35mm slides and View-Master reels.
