    Send them away to a company that produces slides from digital images.
    There are plenty of them around - Google for 'slide from digital' and
    you will get more than enough to check through. It's not cheap though
    - I looked at one site and for a mounted slide it was £3. If you have
    a large number (over 100) buying a 1024 x 768 LCD projector starts
    looking more and more attractive.

    Personally I suspect it will be as easy to produce a digital slide
    show and hire an LCD projector.

    How? How about reading your replies from May, UC, skip, Rob, and Cats.
    They all tell you how.

    My local camera store has a service that does just that. I supply a
    burned CD (or floppy, if it all will fit) of jpegs in which the
    horizontal dimension is at least 1200 pixels. (If the photo is in
    portrait mode, put it on the CD rotated sideways so it will appear to
    the store as landscape.)
    The store will produce very nice slides on Ektachrome, I
    believe. The charge is about $3.50 each with a minimum charge of $15
    (they have to use up a 24 exposure roll of Ektachrome to do this).
    However, you said you had a LARGE number of pictures. I just
    used the service for 10 pictures, which was OK with my budget, but it
    may be too costly for a large number of slides.
    Some of the pictures I gave them were postcards I had scanned.
    My Ulead software has a method of getting rid of the halftone dots
    when scanning a postcard or newspaper photo. These made good slides.
    Also, some of the pictures were graphic images I constructed with a
    graphic arts program.

    Go to you local professional photo/camera dealer. Tell them what you
    want done. They can tell you if they can do it & how much it will
    cost. If they can't do it ask for information on anyone they know that
    can do a quality job.

    Still "but how" after so many hows? How about capturing whatever you know
    have with Slide-Film, then buy an used slide-film projector at some
    pawn-shop or Goodwill for few bucks. For years, I have seen many at
    Goodwill for $2-10 a pop.

    How to turn regular photo to slide-film you may have to Google for
    technique as I have never done myself to know which is the best way.

    I tried Jessops but the person I spoke to said they didn't have anything to
    do with that sort of thing!

    Jessops are not the only player in town. Use Google
    for 'digital to slide'. Tick the 'UK Sites only' checkbox and look
    through the results for the one with the right price. You will have
    to put the images on a CD and send them away. Hopefully that's clear
    now and you will get on and do it - or work out that an LCD projecter
    would be cheaper.

    And how much will a LCD projecter cost?

    If you don't like the other price than you can always google as few have
    already suggested.

    How long is a piece of string? Sorry but you must do the measuring
    yourself. We have given you the information that you either send the
    images away for transfer to traditional slide, or you get an LCD
    projector. Now it's up to you to use that information.

    So, no one has any idea how much a decent LCD projector will cost?

    Yes, everyone has the idea, but wonder how long it will take the idea to
    get to you <bg>

    At last - a post that deserves UC's full bile. Why on earth can you
    not do the research yourself? Are you wanting spoon feeding? Google
    will answer your question. Plus, the definition of 'decent' is a
    moveable feast.

    I asked the question here because newsgroups are said to be occupied by
    'experts' who know everything!

    And the "experts" have been telling you to GOOGLE to boost your brain to

    The subject is

    - You are looking for information

    - You are refusing to learn where to gather information

    - And the experts has been telling you to GOOGLE because GOOGLE contains
    millions of useful information that most people don't have time to feed you.
    Google is where the experts leave their information there for years, when
    information on Usenet only last for hours/days.

    - The experts already gave you much more information than you really need to
    help yourself to the next level.

    So, what you really need is to learn to help yourself with so much
    valuable information many people here try to feed you.
