As you may know, the Professor was a member of the 2nd Battalion - 9th Marines in the Vietnam War during the years of 1966 and 1967. While overseas, he took hundreds of 35mm slide photos that have been sitting in boxes for years, brought out periodically for viewing on the slide projector.
Recently, he purchased the ImageLab Slide and Negative Scanner. For around $100, we can now convert his old Vietnam slides into 5 Megapixel photos, suitable for enlargement up to 20 x 30 inches. We gave it a test-run tonight and it was easy to use. We scanned 69 slides (a drop in the bucket) in about 20 minutes or so. They printed out beautifully. Here are a few that he said I could share, reduced in size and optimized for the web. I forgot what area these were from, but I'll find out. Click them to enlarge.

Two thumbs up for the ImageLab. I'm going over there to do some more soon, and we'll try out the "Negative Scanner" feature. Turns old 35mm negatives into big, pretty pictures.
