When “AARP The Magazine” wrote about photo scanning in its May/June issue, it launched a crusade – advocating that readers should start thinking about genealogy, preservation of memories and sharing photos in today’s all-digital world.
“But, the challenge in this economy was how to embrace technology to affordably archive and preserve shoeboxes of family photos,” explained Mitch Goldstone, a pioneer in digital imaging and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com. By commercializing Eastman Kodak Company imaging technology, Goldstone, a leader in the photo industry and Photo Marketing Association member since 1990, is on a mission.
Having solved the biggest problem in photography, ScanMyPhotos.com is helping to unlock millions of analog photo snapshots; for $64 the company scans 1,000 photos in minutes and can scan upwards of 300,000 pictures every day.
According to Goldstone, “The AARP article, ‘Digitize your photos in a snap’ created urgency. It dramatized the relevancy for converting analog to digital because of the magazine’s stature as the world’s largest circulation publication. The article fueled conversations among grandparents and even their computer savvy grandkids. It forged another idea for simplifying photo scanning and sharing; leading to a new ScanMyPhotos.com service called: ScanMyGrandparents.com [http://www.ScanMyGrandparents.com].”
ScanMyGrandparents.com lets families tell a story and enjoy their photo memories.
“We made it affordable and super-easy,” said Goldstone. The ScanMyGrandparents.com service includes scanning up to 100 photos onto a DVD, a Kodak-quality photo memory album, free image rotation, same-day service and free return delivery for just $49.95.
Among the hundreds of comments about ScanMyPhotos.com was this one: “It was a great service. I’ve referred it to several friends. It’s invaluable to have taken photos that were buried away in several boxes in the garage, unlikely to ever be viewed again and have them put onto my computer. Old friends have had many laughs and the grandparents are thrilled.”
