With technology constantly evolving, sometimes you'll find that the ways that you used to do things are no longer the best. If you've taken a lot of 35mm photographs in the past and had them transferred to slides, perhaps you want to update them for current times. Transferring them to DVD is a quick and easy way to share them with friends, and even to compress space for storage.
Things You'll Need
- Blank DVD
- Digital Camera
Display your slides in the way you normally would. For many, this means projecting them onto a screen. The clearer the picture and the smoother and whiter the surface, the better the end result will be.
Use a digital camera. Many consumers already have them, but if you don't you can borrow one from someone that does or even find an equipment rental house and rent one for a day.
Place the digital camera on a tripod. You can also put it on a table or any other smooth surface, but a tripod will work best for framing of shots as well as stability during picture taking.
Cycle through your slides, and as you get to each new one take a picture of it. This is just a quick way of turning your slide into a digital image on your camera.
Transfer the digital images to your computer. Once there, you can load them into any DVD burning software, use the "slide show" feature and create a digital presentation of all your slides. You can pick transitions, the lengths of time they'll be on screen and even what order you want them in. Once done it's only a few clicks in your burning software to burn a DVD.
