This is the first test of a slide scanner I just purchased, the jumbl digital film scanner/converter. I was most concerned about being able to download the images from it's internal memory onto my Ubuntu computer. All the documentation talks about is Windows and Apples. But, following the same directions it has for connecting to Windows the unit mounted onto my file system and I simple copied the scanned jpeg image and loaded it into Gimp. This particular image comes from sometime in the early '70's. I no longer have the date but I can still recognize the location.
