Are Old 35mm Slides Worth Anything?

FAQs Jackson Bowman September 2, 2022

Note to new and old sellers: Slides very, very, very rarely sell for more than 5 or 6 cents each – so it’s a waste of space and time to sell them at 10 or 25 cents a piece to start . Mom’s old ride with travel slides doesn’t sell for $100, even with free shipping.

What can I do with old 35mm slides?

If you have the slides but no way to project them, it’s time to convert them to digital format as a backup. You can then print out the images for a scrapbook or paperback album, or create a photo book with the images. If you don’t have a slide projector, invest in a slide viewer.

What can I do with old slides and negatives?

The best way to digitize your slides and negatives is to find a reputable company to help you. I recommend Memories to Digital (they have stores in Boulder and Lone Tree, Colorado) and FotoBridge. If you would like help managing this process, I can oversee the project so the scanning company has all the information they need.

How do you get rid of old slides?

The safest, easiest and cheapest way to destroy the pictures is to throw the slide film into boiling water. The gelatinous layers of the image melt quickly and slide off the film base to form a black jelly-like mass that you can dispose of with normal household waste.

What can I do with all my slides?

My recommendations are: 1. make sure you keep them in a safe place, and 2. get them digitized as soon as possible. You can send them to a reputable provider like Fotobridge, find a photo organizer/scanner like me, or even do it yourself with a good photo and slide scanner.

Can you recycle photo slides?

Photos that can’t be recycled

Tip: If you tear a photo in half and see layers in your photo, you can’t recycle the photo. Slides and negatives are also not recyclable. You can remove the paper frames of the slides from the film and recycle that part of the slide.

What can I do with old slide carousels?

Turns out Goodwill accepts carousel trays. It’s hard to know what they do with it, but maybe the plastic is recyclable because it’s known to be all a specific formula, as opposed to mixing different hard, black plastics together, for example. Disc carousels can be recycled by GreenDisc if you remove the metal.

Is there an app to scan slides?

One is a $140 digital scanner while the other is a free app called SlideScan. The app is unique in that you only need your iPhone or Android to scan your slides. It works really well, but we found the process to be more time consuming and the end results can be good or bad.
