you can see that the button to scan the slide/negative is seen as a usb 2.0 keyboard.
i did not find any linux app to use this device to scan photo slide/negative.
i set “Cheese” according to use the SND 3600 C2 instead of my webcam.
i use “Cheese” to take a photo of my negatives one by one.
after that i use digikam:
- to create positives from negatives (colour inverse feature)
- to fix colours with “automatic levels”
i use digikam batch feature to do this on all photos in one step.
quality of photos: 10/20, not very good but sufficient for me (not a professional). i just want to keep souvenir.
