I am trying to scann some slides, but so far only poor results. Even though I have the resolution set high. I am still getting t scan lines traversing the image especialy noticable in the darker areas and shadows. My quiery is how do I prevent them forming.

What resolution are you scanning at? Are you doing preview scans or going straight into the main scan?
I had this problem when I tried using Vuescan with a Minolta 5400 and didn't seem to be able to configure things in a way which avoided it, so I went back to using the Minolta Software.
What scanner are you using and what software?
This is a common issue on some Nikon Scanners - its known as banding. This can sometimes occur when there are deep blacks or strong highlights - or if the slide is very contrasty.
If you are using Nikon scan software - or indeed any other scan software, try using the Super Fine Scan mode or use the multipass/multisample function. This should eliminate it.
Thanks for the replies.The Scanner that I am using is aa Hewit Placard Scanjet 3970. The resolutions I used was 4800 dpi with the sharpen set High. The Software I use is Photoshop 7.0. My last posting "Fossill" is a typical example of the problem I encountered. The subject was A contrasty one but I put a little blur to help cover the Banding. With little effect.
