Since you shoot on 35mm film cameras, what exactly do you use to get your images uploaded on :devart: ? What kind of scanner?

I used for some (but its quality is horrible)  a canoScan2700f;
   for some others, I used a Nikon super coolscan 4000ED : there, you've got, some now and then, to open it up and clean a little mirror that gets dirty/smoggy  with city air, translating into poor contrast when you don't clean it up often;
my last "scans"  weren't scans at all: I used an old bellows with macro lens (pentax smc-m 4/50mm, closed at f=8), a slide copier in front of it all, and used my DSLR with the biggest pixel count (a pentax K-S1 ). I shoot jpegs, with colour balance set at "normal"; there, the problem is EV compensation. In short: pics that I've shot at home, with flashes and black curtains as drop, I must do pretty the same correction as when I took the pics: EV -2  or stronger.

So basically, in a nutshell, you use a scanner on some of your images, and others, you literally take a picture of with a DSLR? lol

the scanned photos with the Canon scanner are horrible;
with the Nikon one, when opening with GIMP  to make some little twists, are huuuuge (some 600+  megabyte)  and take too long to PP
those digitalized (in the old-fashioned way we used to do just some years ago to make a duplicate of a slide) with a DSLR  are more malleable, but lack pixelpeeping quality.

The best way of viewing a slide is still  projecting it on a real big surface
