transferring slides to cd's or dvd's

Postby gramamy98 on Thu Aug 02, 2007 6:31 pm

Hi, I have a problem...my dad bought a camera back in the 1950's, when the salesman told him that 620 film was the way to go! He took thousands of pictures (slides), and had a Bausch & Lomb projector to show them with. Of course, we all know that 35 mm became much more popular, but now my 91 year old mother has all these slides and can't look at them, as NOTHING is made for slides size 2 1/4 x 2 1/4. Does anybody know how we can transfer these old slides?
Thanks so much for any help.

Hi

Go to a digital photo service and they can scan the slides for you into digital format. You can find such services by doing a Google search or visitng a local digital proceesing outfit.

hello all,
That is a great tip and i will try it too! I think London Drugs may do something like that service, then you can save them on a cd as well.
