Living in New York City can be tough—the high cost of rent sure doesn’t guarantee a large amount of living space. So, when ScanMyPhotos customer Brandi Larsen needed to move into a smaller NYC apartment, she was faced with a downsizing dilemma.
One of the things taking up a lot of space in her current apartment was a whole bookshelf of photo albums that were practically disintegrating as time wore on. As she was preparing for the move, Brandi knew it was time to turn her analog photos into digital copies.
“The albums held every picture that I had before photos went digital. They were mostly high school and college photos, and a few my parents had given me from growing up—there were more than a thousand pictures. I had to ditch the albums to get everything scanned—and that part was difficult. There were notes, ticket stubs, and all sorts of memorabilia next to the photos so I took pictures of the album pages in order to hold onto the memories without wasting any physical space.”
