PhotoGraphic Specialties uses Acrobat to create 35mm slides from either Windows or Mac Adobe Portable Document Files (.pdf's).

The .pdf format lets anyone see your documents exactly as you want them to see them, and they can be made into slides as well as printed on paper. We set our software to enlarge or reduce your pages to fit onto a 35mm slide as best as possible, without cropping off any of the pages. Simply send us the .pdf file and tell us which pages to use to create slides. Please do not place any important text or images too close to the edges of the paper. Your pages may be either portrait or landscape, but you may not mix page sizes in one PDF file. An ideal page size would be 7.33 x 11 inches. Keep in mind that blank film is black whereas your computer monitor defaults to white. If you do not provide a background (either white or a color) to your file and you use black text, the text WILL be invisible.

Production of these items has ended. This page is for information only. Photographic Specialties is no longer producing slides and transparencies. I have been self-employed for 35 years, but looking forward to retirement since my wife died five years ago. With the decline of conventional photography and the recent recession, the availability of film and chemicals as well as the volume of work has declined to such an extent that it is no longer possible to have fresh chemicals to develop film. I hope that if you still need conventional slides and transparencies, you will be able to find someone who can produce them for you. Thank you for your orders over the years.
