Do you guys know a respectable professional photo lab that still process slide films, included 4x5 inches slide film. I am thinking mail to photographic lab,since i am located in glasgow and no labs do slide processing anymore over here.

If you're in Glasgow surely Loxley do it, i haven't heard that they'd stopped. I know they don't process 5x4 neg anymore but last i heard they were still doing e6.
loxley has stopped doing E6 a few month ago, got a disagreeable surprise in may when i went there with my films.
Peak Imaging will develop 5x4 and smaller slide films. I have always had a good service from them when getting stuff developed or printed.
Another vote here for Peak imaging - very good indeed.
Another for Peak...
I can also recommend Peak Imaging. The only qualm I have about slide processing generally is..it's getting more and more expensive!...Have you tried the new Kodak "Ektar" neg. film?....at 100asa in all formats? It's superb!....and also much cheaper...(you can process it yourself)
Since I tried it, I've not bought any more transparency film...It scans well too.
If you accept to send overseas then we have one lab in my small country can process film even 8x10, i shocked when i knew about them, so now i am very happy if i will buy a LF in the future, they processed my 120 film perfectly, couldn't be happier, they even can print and scan with their drum scanners if i want, they are experienced in their work, KODAK lab in my area for film, they are the best and all other studios or companies send any film or sheets to them for processing and developing
If film gets sent overseas for processing, isn't there a danger that Customs will want to open the outgoing package for "inspection"?
Unlike 35mm sheet film doesn't live in light-tight cartridges and many people seem incapable of reading the cautionary notice on the box.
I once came across an auditor/stock checker, in the public sector of course, who insisted on opening all the unsealed sheet-film boxes so he could count the remaining sheets!
I hope if in the future when i will order sheets to use it in my country from overseas it will not face those problems.
I hate this life when it is not going easier.
Metro in London are expensive but the best in the UK
