Factors That Can Damage Your Slides
If you are not warehousing your slides in a dark, low temperature and humidity controlled room, they can deteriorate until the slides become completely spoilt. Without proper management of the room temperature and humidity, your slides can lose color and contrast, and will eventually become very brittle, while also absorbing dirt from the environment.
Contaminants such as formaldehyde, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, vapors etc. do have damaging effects on your slides. When you store your slides in a damp environment it will easily spoil and under some conditions, insects will actually eat them.
By exposing your slides and negatives to extended periods of heavy daylight or even moderate artificial light, they will definitely lose some portion of their initial color quality. Also, strong Ultra Violet light can cause fading of slides.
Digital files are never affected by harsh environmental conditions which usually destroy analog slide, and photo files. The final product is accessible via our cloud service, on an MP3 or as a digital download.
