Most professional photographers probably want to orientate their professional engagement towards digital photography, and the same may be also said for those who use photographic films (temporary, at least), and it is quite certain that there are people with large collections of very useful conventional slides.

Nevertheless, some professionals are still hesitating regarding the use of professional digital photography.

The paper aims at informing the professional public about numerous advantages of digital over conventional-analogue images, and especially about the methods of conversion of slides and negative films to digital images.

Digital dental photography has numerous advantages over analogue photography and is synonymous with modern dentistry. In addition to the above, it does not eliminate completely negative and positive films, but enables their conversion into a digital form as a safer, more practical, and more cost-effective form for their storage.
