Any experience with what might be a great scanner to use for photos and slides? I have several, actually probably more like thousands to go through and would like to scan and save and share them with some of my relatives. These pics were all taken by my Dad who has been gone about 30 years already and it is a job I would like to get done before it is my time too. I have a printer scanner but it isn't designed specifically for photos and sure isn't for slides. Thanks for any help.

I haven't read all of the posts so apologies if this has already been covered.

Here's a link to a post that explains the difference between CCD and CIS scanners and why it's a good idea to buy a CCD scanner to scan old photos.

Good luck with your scanning,
