Slides may be a little more expensive than digital files, but if you have
access to a copy stand and a macro lens, you can do the whole thing in an
hour. I've had good luck using Ektachrome Tungston slide film, ASA 160.
your ASA on 125, f-stop at 16, expose for 1/15th sec (you may want to
bracket), drop it off at the developer and pick it up an hour or two
If you shoot multiple copies of each drawing, you only have to go through
this once. The resolution and color quality is usually very good. Good
