    Searched the archives for an answer, but didn't find an answer.

    I have a small handful of slides, probably 30 or less, that I'd like to have in a digital format. Possible printing of some, so high quality scans is desired.

    My local photography store said it was $15/per image for high resolution scans. Is this the norm? Are there any decent & trust worthy "mail order" companies?

    If $15 is normal, I can select a few of my favorites and then do lower resolutions ($2/per image local store) of the rest.

    (I apologize if this is in the wrong section...mods please move if needed. Thanks!)

    Thanks,
    Bev

    It depends on what you mean by high quality. $15 sounds high per image for a scan, but it depends on the resolution of the scans. If you were to get some drum scanned, it might cost you $150 per image. Get some specs from them as to the scanning resolution (DPI) of these $15 scans.
