35mm slides


PhotoGraphic Specialties is a digital service bureau which uses Microsoft Publisher 2000 to make 35mm slides. We accept Publisher .pub files.

When you begin to make slides, go to the "File" drop-down menu and select "Page Setup". Under "Choose a Publication Layout" choose "Special Size". For "Choose a Publication Size" choose "Custom" and make the "Width" = 11.0", the "Height" = 7.33", and the "Orientation" = Landscape. We suggest you "Save As" a "Publisher 35mm Template" so you will have it for future use. (Also 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 to see what your image will really look like, so add a background.)

When you save your file in Publisher, go to the drop-down menu in the upper left of your screen; choose "File," then "Save As," and save the file as a .pub file. We have all the typefaces which came with Microsoft Publisher 98 and Publisher 2000, 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 to avoid substitutions.

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.
