To begin making a slide, create a new image of type "RGB Color", with a Width of 2048 pixels and a Height of 1364 pixels Set the resolution to 100 and the color to black. (Remember that Windows shows everything you create on a default of white paper, and since film is black when you begin, you need a black page so you can see what your image will really look like.) We have suggested this size picture as it will look sharp on your finished slide and still not create a huge file.
When you save your 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 .ppf file. Choose "Compress the image." We have all the typefaces which came with Micrografx Picture Publisher 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.
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.
