    scanning old slides

    Happy 4th To All; We have recently purchased an Epson V700 scanner and are in the process of scanning some of our old slides. These slides have been in sleeve pages and stored in a cardboard box in our garage for as much as 15 years. The scanner works great for us. The photoshop software is going to take a little time (ha), but the scanned images seem crisp and our goal is to try and sell some of them through a stock agency. Does anyone have any hints for selling stock that you are willing to share?

    Happy 4th to you too (Im British but we were as happy to cut you loose. Just kidding)
    Yes, I can offer some advice if you care to take it. It really depends on what kind of images you have, that's going to be the key point. Im with Getty Images and I would recommend you go with them or one of the other big players (not many left now Getty has bought them all). Can you post some of the photo's somewhere?

    Keep in mind that photos with recognizable individuals might need model releases to be sold for publication.

    what would it take to be "recognizable"? Would it mean being able to see both of the models eyes?
