A quick tip on printing you longer shots, such as those from your Spinner 360, and sticking them together on the cheap.
After some dodgy “scanning” of my Spinner 360 film using a monitor and digital camera (our scanner is on its way!). I decided that although they were terrible quality we’d love to have some printed off, but are not pretty enough to warrant the expense of printing professionally.
So, here’s the tip. Take your pic and with some computer trickery (we used the free photo editing software “G.I.M.P.”) chop your picture into bite-size 6×4 chunks. Then load up onto USB stick off to local supermarket and self printing kiosk. Once you’ve got your prints, swing by the stationary isle and pick up some clear self adhesive film (for backing school books). Then simply lay down a strip to put your photos on, face down first as it is easier to make sure that the front has no air bubbles. Fold over so that the film now covers the front and the back. Trim it with scissors and push out any air bubble that are present. Simply put it up on the wall somewhere and count down until your scanner arrives!
