Some shots taken at airshows a few decades ago.

I am impressed... mostly with the fact that you scanned slides and got those results. I tried scanning slides... my printer had an attachment.. and all I got were some silly little photos of slides with which I could do nothing.

What is the secret of how you did that? And how large can you enlarge them? I don't think my new printer even has that capability.

Photoshop helps with improving old negatives and slides, but great shots in the beginning helps a lot more

Nice work on the convertions.
Let me guess... Kodachrome 64...No, wait Ektachrome 125???
Love the color saturation in the first photo.

I used an inexpensive scanner I bought online through Costco. I think it was about $80. It took me a couple weeks at 6+ hours per day to scan some 2500+ slides.

It will also scan negatives and automatically converts them. Bye lots of cans of air to clean them up ahead of time.

Yes it was Kodachrome weapon of choice for years.
Negatives were okay but I felt it left too much up to the lab to mess up.
