Forgive me for the super stupid question...

When dealing with color slides which side of the slide has the emulsion on it and how do I tell?

Some of my slides are mounted on plastic squares that have no writing on them at all but one side is black and one side is white

Some other slides are white on both sides but have "COLOR SLIDE SLIDE PROCESSING BY KODAK" stamped on one side.

The film always curves toward the emulsion. It will be the non-shiny side.

Ah that tip works well on negatives but my color slides appear to be quite shiny on both sides and since they are mounted they don't appear to curve either... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

You could take a bad or mediocre shot and pop it out of the mount and see which way it curls...and check the film manufacturer's imprinting on the frame and see which way reads correctly...then you'll know the orientation for the rest of the slides...good luck!

Mounts that are white and black, the front (non-emulsion) is white, and the black is the emulsion side.

On mounts that are white on both sides, there is usually a "this side towards screen" on one side. That is the back, or emulsion side.

If all else fails, remove from the mount and the edge type will read correctly when the emulsion side is away from you.

(I have never seen plastic mounts used by Kodak. Only cardboard mounts. On the cardboard mounts, the "processed by Kodak" is the emulsion side.) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
