That is in the ball park, What happened is I tipped the camera on its side to get a vertical as opposed to horizontil shot. The the slide was scanned it automatically made it reach from the top to the bottom of the screen, but I lost about 1/4 of the screen width on each side. If I understand you correctly there is not much I can do about this w/o greatly distorting the photo. If you have any other ideas, let me know. Thanks for the input.
Well I'm typing this i'm thinking how stupid, I'm going to try scanning the slide horizontally then flipping it in the computer, maybe that will work.
