    I have a box full of still projector slides from my dad - Agrus 500 slide projector.
    Where can I find information on putting these to disk?

    If you don't want to pay someone else to do it you will have to buy a scanner thats capable of scanning slides. They come with complete instructions for the most part so the rest will be easy. I am in the process of scanning a couple of shoe-boxes full and it's very time consuming.... but rewarding cuz I haven't seen them in 25 yrs or so.

    Thank you for your reply and info. One last question on this matter - where do I start looking for that special scanner and what might you suggest? I have a new lexmark fax, printer, scanner at present. I mostly want to put the pix on disk to send to family members. I guess I have about 800 slides.

    You would need to buy a scanner that comes with a transparency adapter. It would be capable of scanning negatives and slides. In Canada I paid $140.00 for a Canon 5200F. It came with decent software and does the job just fine. You can take a look at some examples if you look in the "Photo Album" forum. I have posted some scanned-in pic's there in the last week or so. Alos, check to see if your scanner has an adapter you can buy. Good luck and have fun.
