It puts all the scanned slides on the desk top and I sort or put them in files
from there. Very easy to use.

Thanks, Ken. I looked at this scanner and it's selling for about $120 now.
It's gotten a lot of very positive comments. Which of course leads to more

When I'm scanning four slides at a time, and building up a large bank of images,
can I organize the images into different folders for easy retrieval, or are they
all lumped together? I'd like to have "virtual carousels" of slides for
weaving, slides for Renaissance, etc. And, if the images can be grouped into
different folders, would I still be able to mix and match images from different
folders into a unique "slide show?"

Does anyone have any hints for improving the image quality that's projected?
I've noticed the images lose color and sharp edges when projected.
