Default converting slides

I'd love to convert our family slides to pictures so we can store on CD's or print. Does anyone know of a technique or software that could accomplish this?? TIA

I've seen (somewhere) a little device that you can use (I think it was around $50) maybe search the Internet? I need to do the same thing with my wedding photos - they are all on slides!

My mother just bought a scanner that has a plate that holds the slides. When you scan them the come up just like a pitcure. I belive it was an epson.

Oh my gosh! I just did this! My dad died in '86 and we just found a suitcase full of slides that were sitting in his basement. My brother brought them to me a month or so ago and I spent a week-end scanning them. They turned out GREAT! I have them on my computer, plus I have printed a bunch of them, and I also copied all of them onto flash drives and sent a complete set to all 3 of my brothers! I actually posted a few of them here in the photo forum! I bought a scanner from Wal-mart online, got it in a couple of days and love it for this. I didn't want the copier, printer, phone, fax stuff-just a simple scanner. It was around 85 dollars. It's an Epson Perfection V200 Photo. I'm sure there are bigger, better ones out there but for the money I am perfectly pleased. It comes with the holder to do slides and also strips of negatives.
This is one of the pics I scanned it was taken in 1954 When I was in the hospital getting my tonsils out. I loved all his slides and you will be thrilled to have family history on your computer. I have also copied them to a external hard drive and DVDs.
