I have been meaning to get down to scanning my collection of negatives as a DIY project for some time now. I even bought an Epson scanner for this purpose a few years ago, but ended up getting through only a couple of years of stuff. I am not sure I will have the time to do this by myself in the near future. I was wondering if any one has used any of the services that are out there that they were happy with and would recommend? Also, any to avoid? As an alternative, I can pay my 11yo to do this over the summer break. He is pretty computer savvy and good with his hands. We are talking a few thousand negatives here. In that case, do people have a recommendation for a good slide/negative scanner + software which will do a good job with him in charge.
