I knew the Anger and Sloth part ("Guilty as charged on both counts, Your Honor"), but I'm kind of wistfully sorry to be reminded about Lust. ("Nolo contendere!")

Not completely sorry, though, mind you, nor completely penitent.

I ordered six of the same image, they look fantastic, and best, they are all first generation slides

My first experience was nothing like the one Chris had.

When I called to check on the delivery the day it was to arrive, they told me they did not receive my order and that they had been having problems with their site. I watched my files upload and cue on their FTP server, so I have no idea where they ended up with all the other customers orders.

I must say the lady was as frustrated as I was when I called her about it, and they went through hoops to get them to me by the coming Monday and only charged me for normal delivery.

My lesson, like I mentioned with the frame site, is to always call and confirm that they have received and completed your request. Otherwise you will be waiting and there is nothing in the mail!

I will use them again.

I received my slides from slides.com yesterday morning. Wow, I can't believe how good they look!

I'm entering a competition in Jersey and had shot a roll with traditional slide film. I can usually get about 9 or 10 decent ones, not great, to use out of a roll of 36 when I shoot it myself. I can't afford or schedule a professional photographer to do it. I went to the local photo shop and found out that there is no longer next day or two day service anymore, it's over a week. I wouldn't have my slides in time. I found a place who would do it in two hours, but it's far and I can't take off work to do it.

I noticed a few of you were happy with slides.com so I gave them a call. Very helpful, the gentleman was also courteous and friendly, the lady sounded like she was just doing her job, but not rude. I took the pictures outside with my new NikonD70 (nice camera) and played with the pics a bit on Photoshop, mostly adjusting paper color and contrast.

Uploaded them thru their site, and I made sure I called them after to make sure they received them ok. Thanks Beth. Had them delivered overnight. It came out to $81.50 for 50 slides and overnight shipping. It might sound expensive, but I've wasted more money in film trying to get it right, and it would have been a LOT cheaper than hiring someone who couldn't give me a guarantee. I will NEVER shoot my own slides again. (unless of course slides.com goes out of business)
