Do you mean slides as in projector slides?

I don't think you can get an official transparency adapter for the Canon Canoscan Lide 30 Flatbed Scanner.

I do recall a company called 'Black Widow' having an add on adapter that simply rested on top of the glass but having never tried one I can not say how good it was.

You could get a dedicated film / slide scanner for about £250 from Jessops, this has (I quote):-

48-bit, 3600 DPI optical resolution
USB 2.0
Scans 35mm negs (B&W and colour)
Scans 35mm slides (mounted & unmounted)
Scans colour or monochrome film and mounted slides
Includes Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0

if that's bit out your price range and you like Canon products try the Canon CanoScan 3200F
@ £59 from ebuyer. It has a 1200x 2400 dpi resolution and 48 bit color-depth.

Good luck :-)

I recently bought one for my uncle from Argos at about £90 which copies the slides and all negatives across beautifully...not a lot of good if you already have a scanner but worth a thought...can get you make / model details if req...
