Somehow one of my attatchments hasn't so having another go to enlarge similar to ordinary "snap" size


I extracted these from a larger weddig group.
They have come out smaller than usual . I don't want them  very large but perhaps just an ordinary  everyday snap size?

All my cine film from 1964 was copied on to DVD .My first cameras were seconds and often filmed over earlier recordings,

I have managed to "grab" a couple of scenes which I know wiil be grainy and I do Not require any repairs.

What I would like ,if possible, is a "lightening" of the photo so that I might be able to recognize a few faces Admittedly, I don't hold out much hope (being economical here as I have seen some wonderful Work. )


This was taken as a Transparency in 1956.
Later I had all  printed but the colours are now fading.Is it possible to refresh .
Very hot and sunny day with the Bospherous in the background


I obtained a death Certificate for Richard Douglas Wilkinson who died on 9th April  1974.

This was issued by a coroner and I would be grateful if anyone can find out more details.

Thank you

Long Story. 20yrs  ago I transferred 36 hrs of cine film to Video.(2 cine Cameras .Heath Robinson set up and lots of retakes at various settings)

10 yrs ago Son in law transferred VCR to DVD .both of which I can view on TV via my Samsung Video DVD Player/Recorder. Nothing Edited.

However I would like to view this (and be able to Edit )on my desktop computer (Windows XP)which only has CD.

A friend who's hobby is  transferring Music files said that I should buy a Dual Layer DVD Player (which he would install) or an external via USB (which appeals   to me as I don't want to spend my life on this project

I am totally flummoxed with the choices.. Just too many None of which I understand, At 80yrs old ,I want someone to say buy this ,connect to your USB and GO!!!!

Hallo out there.! All I want to do is Load a DVD (as one did with a VCR)and view on my able to pause and Edit /capture a frame and save
