A few years ago, I scanned several hundred slides for my parents' 50th  
anniversary party. I purchased a slide adaptor for my flatbed scanner.  
Although the results were very good, I would not recommend doing it  
that way if you have the volume you are talking about. It was *very*  
slow and tedious. If I had to do it over again, I would invest in a  
dedicated slide scanner.
