Capture, View, Show and Share your aging 35mm slides with your own smart phone and this very clever tool!

Quick. Simple. Inexpensive. High quality DIY digital transfers.


  • Old slide projectors are inconvenient and don't allow for quick and remote sharing of images.
  • Once beautifully-saturated slides celebrating your most important life moments and relationships — are degrading and deteriorating.
  • Decay occurs in varying degrees of loss in color, contrast, grain, sharpness and tonal range depending upon the film base, dyes used in the layers of emulsion, quality of chemicals used and care taken in processing.

As a consequence, millions of boxes of valuable images that might otherwise be treasured memories for many generations are stowed away in attics, closets and garages — fading away.

Answer: Got slides to share? Digitize, now!

Designed by a professional engineer, SlidesClick™ integrates three essential functions for foolproof slide conversions:

  • Steady camera positioning
  • Accurate slide positioning

Why was it developed?

Ed Dittmar — a Coeur d'Alene, Idaho rocket scientist, engineer, professor and inventor - recently served a mission in Europe for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (a renowned world resource in genealogical research).

Assigned to develop and construct digitizing equipment for the church's Europe Area archives, he gained deep experience in high-end digital imaging.

Dittmar was urged by regional family history authorities to develop a small, fold-able, easy-to-use, low priced tool that library patrons, and personal family historians could use to digitally capture, instantly view, and share documents, photos and artifacts with family members, friends, church archives, colleagues, students and others.

The result: FamilyClick™

FamilyClick™ is a quick, easy to use, low cost tool that makes it possible to digitize family records, photos, drawings, illustrations and artifacts with quality that rivals or exceeds that of many flatbed scanners!
