"Does anyone out there know an easy way to scan or convert color slides into digital images? My entire collection is photographed on color slides, which I use for occasional school presentations and at club meetings. It's easy to carry slides in the same coin boxes designed for 2x2 flips; but now I wish I had them all in my laptop to be able to make sexier Powerpoint presentations and be able to send images by e-mail for research… Please don't tell me I have to photograph everything all over again!"

Actually, today there are a number of alternatives for digitizing slides. Most photo processing shops now offer such services. I've borrowed slides from friends, given them to a processor, and received back the original slides plus a CD-ROM disk containing the digitized pictures. I've found the process very acceptable and affordable. This was over a year ago. Does anyone with more recent experience care to comment?
