old family slides - Photography

I will be digitalizing old family slides and want to use a professional service to do the work. I have never been through this before and would like advice on finding a service, what resolution to have them done in. I am archiving for posterity, and will be processing the pictures in photoshop 6.0. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Duncan Raleigh, N.C. -U.S.A....

    Hi,

    A decent lab is [url]www.imagers.com[/url] in Atlanta. they have been around for quite a
    while (a bit pricey).
    I would have the slides scanned at high resolution. While today your needs
    might not be that high, who knows what will be available in 2, 5 or 10 years.
    Right now monitor resolution is already available at 1600x1200, double the
    800x600 of a few years back.
    You don't mention the number of slides, but having a lab do it can be quite
    expensive. If you have the time, and you intend to manipulate the images in
    Photoshop, buying a dedicated slide scanner might be an option.
    I just ordered a Minolta Dimage Elite 5400 for $845. Nikon is offering rebates
    for their scanners.

    You can get them put onto a Kodak Photo CD (not "Picture CD"). It gives
    multiple resolutions (not particularly important) with the highest res of
    2048 x 3072 pixels. Good quality scans. I thnk the prices are 50c to $1 per
    slide, depending on where you get it done.

    And before you send a large pack of slides to a service to have them scanned
    I would recommend that you send in a few first to see if you like their work.
