Slide Tray Carousels, donate?

Going to get rid of about dozen slide carousels, I don't want to throw them out. Best place to leave them? Donation facility? I suspect most places might not bother with that old tech. Will likely get rid of the slide projector too, if lamp still works will use it to double check some slides in a few of the carousels have been scanned.

Most all of the original slides have been scanned, burned to DVDs and distributed to about 6 family members. Well backed up. It is still very difficult to throw the originals, most dating as far back as 40 to 60 years! winking smiley

You mentioned that the slides have been given to family members. If any of them are so inclined, this is an incredibly cool way to re-imagine them. Just read about it this morning. [www.thisiscolossal.com]

If it's not too late - you may want to rethink tossing out the original slides - once gone, they're gone forever; I like the idea that prymsnap linked to; if my parents' slides were 35mm (instead of 16mm), I'd be doing that - kinda hard to do with a digital file, though. Also - a part of me doesn't like the thought of destroying the originals.

Any photography forums? That would be where I would try to dump donate them! 30 years ago, people were pretty much dumping vinyl records.

Been getting ads for a phone app that lets you take photos of slides and convert them to digital. Does that work? Or would it be the same as just holding a slide up to the light and taking a picture of it?
