DIGITIZING SLIDES 

   Alan Luedeking writes: "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?
