An Alternate Method for Preparing Presentation Slides Wright and Blevins' recently reported a simplified method preparing presentation slides. I would like t o suggest an alternate method which gives satisfactory results without the necessity of loading your own film canister, doing your own developing, or contact printing. To make slides, one needs a copy stand and a 35 mm SLR camera with macro lens fitted with a yellow filter. Obtain a roll of color print film.

The negatives from the color print film will have adark blue background with the text transparent. Other interesting colors can be obtained withother colored filters.
