This image sells approximately once for every four views. Funny part is back when I was submitting to 6-8 agencies, only StockXpert took it.

Just some late night amusement.

It's a scan of a slide, done on a HP Photosmart scanner, (claimed) optical 2400 pixels per inch, 36-bit color. Consider this, SCSI interface and Windows 98 compatible. Although I did get an XP computer with a newer SCSI card to find it and make scans.

Opinion, do I rescan with modern equipment and submit to SS and IS, or treat this as a strange anomaly?  ???

I haven't tried any slides to digital conversions for Micro at least not with any success, so I'm also wondering if anyone has any success with old film and slides, or is it a waste of time and money? I'm talking scenic and travel, nothing with models or releases.

This is a scan from a kodachrome print.

I did replace the sky but it sells fairly well at SS.

Have tried a couple of slides - scanned commercially - but could not get them accepted.

Race, I can't see the pic. I love slides.

What I was afraid of happening, did. The link is a cache link on the ThinkStock website. I'll have to make a copy and link from a different site. Sorry!  :-[

Now I'm beginning to think it's not counting ThinkStock views on StockXpert and every time it sells, the count goes up and makes it look better, when it's erroneous. So that's two strikes?

Do I go for three in one message?
