Suggestions for high-quality scanning at low cost?

    At the moment I can't afford to buy a PC and scanner. My ideal
    solution would be to have my films made into Kodak Photo CD's - the
    quality's superb and according to Kodak's own website, a 24 exposure
    film can cost as little as $24 to do.

    The trouble is, here in the UK I can only find labs that do Kodak
    Picture CD, which is *way* inferior. I've also tried Jessops, but they
    give you images stored in comprssed JPEg format, whereas the Photo CD
    format is 'non-lossy'. The only other alternative here in the UK seems
    to be to have my slides done one at a time after they've come back
    from the processor, but the prices asked are just astronomical.

    So, can anyone hear suggest a reasonably low-cost way to have films
    scanned onto CD at high quality?

  2. The original Kodak Photo CD is an obsolete product, which is no longer
    available and is not supported or offered by Kodak - the current Kodak
    offering is not the same thing. I don't know where you can get the scanning
    done for a low price I'm afraid, but you could try Colab in Coventry or Home
    Counties Colour Services in Luton for quotes. They both offer a range of pro
    & amateur services and both are reliable.
