Thanks, Dave. I should have added that I work on a Mac. Many of the scanning devices work only on PCs.

I'm considering sending the slides off to a service to have them done rather than purchase a scanner to convert them myself. I'd appreciate any advice, recommendations, pointers from others who have used such services. Feel free to respond privately.
