The Educational Media Office can assist you in the design and production of graphics, images, slides, digital video, presentations, posters, publications and other course-related materials. Contact Marek Jacisin, Educational Media Coordinator, at 617-587-5654.

In order to allow the completion of all the job requests in a timely manner please submit your orders (slide production, scanning, image editing) one week in advance. Turnaround for printing of the posters is 24 hours. However, submitting your printing request at least one week prior to AAO, ARVO, NECO and other major conferences will leave us sufficient time to fix any problems with your poster. Meeting dates can be found on our conferences page.

Digitizing of 35mm Slides

The Educational Media Office processes over 2,000 35mm slides a year using the latest technology. Collections of hundreds of slides spanning decades have been digitized, but the process is time consuming and requires planning. If you wish to scan more than 30 slides, please contact Educational Media Coordinator Marek Jacisin ahead of time.

Overview of the process

  • Scanned on Slide Scanner (Nikon LS-2000 with slide feeder attachment allowing batch scanning)
  • Scanned images are edited in Photoshop 7 image editing software
    • Cropped, rotated
    • Digitally cleaned of scratches and dust
    • Enhanced for color, light and sharpness
  • Resized and optimized for PowerPoint Presentation
    • Optimized images cover maximum area of the slide 10” X 7”
    • Saved in compressed, level 8-9, JPG format
    • File size of the images is @150-250Kb
