going through my family's slides, I looked for an easier way than to scan them one by one. I thought, Boomer already paid hundreds to have these loaded onto four CDs in 2007: there has got to be a way to get these images off the CD and I figured it out, eventually.
I just now tossed all eighteen boxes of slides. I live in a studio, and space is more precious than old slides I'll never need. Each of the kids got a set of CDs, so nobody's gonna miss'em or even know they're gone.
The thing is, somebody has to scan the slides, and unless you have nada to do, I recommend going through them, deciding which to keep, and sending them out to have them scanned and loaded on to disc. You can make copies off the disc, a simple process, as you need them. Works for me, but I ain't the one that paid to have the discs made!
