Do you have boxes of old family photographs on slides cluttering up your closet? If you do, you're not alone. They were great at the time. Now they seem to be an unnecessary source of clutter and an impractical media format. The good news is that they can be easily converted to convenient digital photographs.

There are numerous services on the Internet that will convert your slides for you. It's also likely that there is a service near your home. This may be the best choice if you don't have too many. Otherwise, at twenty to thirty cents or more per slide, you might prefer to do it yourself.

It's even possible that you could make some money copying slides for others. Here's an inexpensive slide copying instructions document and here are a few links for slide copiers from Amazon.com.
