rigg3935: My husband found about 2500 slides my mother in law had stored. He wanted to organize them for her 90th birthday 2 years ago. They were all mixed up. After research, He purchased a digital image converter on line and did about 100 slides a day until all were digitized. He selected about 150 and made a slide show for the birthday party. He used IPhoto, I Movie and the digital images. He had to learn all this as he did not know how to do this before he did it.

Can anyone recommend an intuitively easy but excellent photo scanner? I'd like to try it myself on days the weather's too yucky to do much else.

A Professional Organizer can scan your photos quickly and easily while you are still involved. Consider hiring someone to get this job completed. Mobile organizers come to your home and bring their scanners and you can work along side of them.
