Unless you are willing to sit and wait for your slides to be
scanned, there is an easier way to do this.
I have used faithfully, and have others with great accolades,
Charles Prather at discountdigitalart.com
He is reasonable, quick, and your time is worth it. One offs are
fine, but when you are scanning an entire life's worth of work, at
around 67 cents a slide, this is the best way. Charles and I have
developed a very good working relationship and the scans I have
received have been fantastic. He can also make 2 x 3 ft enlargements
which are beautiful and crisp.
You are right about slide projectors going the way of the Dodo.
Imagine 50 years of SNAG's slide library moldering away. I have been
wanting to get this imagery scanned and available for anyone to
download. Charles can even put in a copyrighted watermark with your
name, dimensions, media, etc., right on the image.
Anyway, good luck on your scanning.
