Why Convert 35mm Slides to Digital?

Preserving Memories

35mm slides can deteriorate over time, especially if not stored properly.

The dyes can fade, fungus can grow on the film, and physical damage can occur.

By digitizing your slides, you ensure those one-of-a-kind moments are preserved before it’s too late.

Saving Storage Space

Boxes of slides take up valuable space in your home.

Once converted to digital format, your entire slide collection can fit on a single USB drive or cloud storage account, freeing up room in your closets and cabinets.

Enhanced Sharing and Editing

Digital photos are easy to share with family and friends via email, social media, or photo sharing sites.

You can also edit the images, such as cropping, adjusting color/contrast, or restoring faded pictures.

Slideshows and photo books are simple to create, too.

Methods for Converting 35mm Slides to Digital

There are a few different ways to convert your 35mm slides:

1. Slide Scanner Equipment

You can purchase a slide scanner and digitize the slides yourself. Basic slide scanners cost around $100, while higher-end models can run several hundred dollars.


  • Cost-effective if you have a large number of slides
  • Convenient to do at home on your own schedule
  • You have control over the scanning process


  • Requires an upfront investment in equipment
  • It can be time-consuming, especially for large collections
  • Steeper learning curve vs other methods
  • Scans may be lower resolution than professional scanners

2. Slide Scanning Service Apps

There are smartphone apps, such as Photomyne or Google Photos, that allow you to “scan” slides using your phone’s camera. Essentially you take a digital photograph of the illuminated slide.


  • Inexpensive
  • Fast and convenient
  • Uses equipment you already own


  • Inferior image quality compared to dedicated scanners
  • Can’t color-correct or restore faded slides
  • Tedious for large numbers of slides
  • It is hard to get even illumination and sharpness

3. Professional Slide Scanning Services

The easiest, albeit most expensive, option is to outsource the project to a professional slide-scanning service like Memory Fortress. You send in your slides, and they scan them with high-end equipment.


  • Best image quality – Pro scanners capture more detail and color
  • Color correction and image restoration are often included
  • The fastest option, especially for large collections
  • No equipment to buy or technical skills needed

Bill F. – “ I was extremely pleased with Memory Fortress. I had about 500 old slides from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s that my parents had taken. They were nearly destroyed by water from a broken pipe in my basement. Memory Fortress digitized them all, and now I have them both on my home PC and backed up in the cloud, so they are preserved for the future. Memory Fortress did a great job and completed everything they said they would do.”
