    I have a question about transparencies (obviously).
    I know that lots of stock photography companies want pictures submitted as transparencies.
    Where do I get these made?
    Can I make them myself on the computer?

    Is there a stand size for 35mm film?

    Any information would be helpful.

    Thanx in advance

    Transparencies are a type of color film. You can either shoot with this film, which in the 35mm format is known as "slide film", or you can have your negatives or prints "copied" onto transparency film, at a pro lab. It's not something you can do yourself on a computer.

    The size of 35mm film is 24x36mm.

    Just an FYI: Stock photo agencies and Magazines love transparencies because they are very easy to scan and yield very high resolution and detail.

    Thanx for your help.
    I will have to try and find a pro lab in the city somewhere (i live in the middle of nowhere).
    Another question: do you have to put them in those little border things yourself or will the lab do that?

    Slide film processing usually includes mounting unless you specify otherwise.
