|X-Rays in standard film format
You can take a digital camera with you to the doctor’s office and just snap some pictures while the x-ray is up on the light box. Take several to make sure you get at least one or two clear shots. Then make sure the size of the file is not too large to email (see below for instructions to compress file).
You can also take digital pictures of your X-Ray film by holding the X-Rays up to a white background like a blank Word document. Or place it on top of a glass coffee table with a white background. Sometimes a window will work if there is a clear background.
To compress your x-ray once it is in jpeg format read below. DO NOT SEND ZIPPED FILES, AGAIN A ZIP FILE WILL NOT WORK, IT MUST be compressed this way as instructed below.
