How can I digitize 35mm slides?

Episode 1232 (1:39:11)

Leslie from Los Osos, CA

Leslie has a bunch of slides and negatives and wants to scan them all into her computer. She's looking at a pair of scanners by Epson and Canon that can do it. Leo says that it will take a very long time to do that. If she wants to take the time to do it, then she can. But why not have a service do it instead? Her time is worth something and Leo advises a service like Scan Cafe. They would send her a box, she'll stuff it and ship it to them. And it's cheap at $0.22 an image. The nice thing about that is that they will clean the negatives and slides before scanning for the best possible quality and then send her back the masters and a DVD with all the images on them.
