35mm slides, overhead transparencies


PhotoGraphic Specialties uses Micrografx FlowCharter 7.0 to make 35mm slides. We accept FlowCharter .flo and Micrografx ABC FlowCharter .abc files.

When you begin to make a 35mm slide in FlowCharter, go to "File," "Page Setup" in the drop-down menus. Type in as the page size 11.25 inches width by 7.50 inches height, and set "Landscape" as the Orientation. Use "0.00 inches" for all four margins.

Create a rectangle the size of the paper and give it a dark-color fill, because 35mm film is black when it is unexposed, not the white paper you see on your screen by default. As an alternative, download our flowcharter.aft 35mm slide template to use.

When you save your digital 35mm slide file, go to the drop-down menu in the upper left of your screen; choose "File," then "Save As," and save the file as a .flo file in Version 7 or an .abc file in version 6. We have all the typefaces which came with Flowcharter 7.0 and ABC FlowCharter 6.0 as well as with Windows, but not all of them are installed on our machine permanently, so tell us the fonts you used in your file so that there are no substitutions.

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.
