Ever considered having your slides returned developed but uncut, and then
mounting  'em yourself?  I do it with rolls of slides from total solar
eclipses - 'cause no machine nor operator can figure out where the edges of
the frames are, and that is *just* too dangerous!  Any processor will do it
if you ask, and the only extra cost is the mounts you have to buy yourself.

Hope this helps.
