How Many Slides and Negatives Fit on a DVD?

Posted by cpapciak on 3-9-2016

When working on a large project, including huge quantities of slide scanning and negative scanning projects, it’s a good idea to know roughly how many images you can fit on a DVD. This way, you can better plan your discs out and include only the images you’d like on each DVD, without the worry of potentially running out of space.

The chart below will show you the resulting pixel and file sizes from your slide and negative scanning, as well as the max print size you can create from your scans.
