ScanMyPhotos.com named #16 “Photo 100 Best in Photography”
Background from the WEB100.com website:
Quick take: You send them a box of photos, and the pros at ScanMyPhotos scan them, all for as low as 4 cents an image.
Let the scanning begin. Perhaps that should be the motto of ScanMyPhotos, a spot that’s all about turning your boxes, bins and envelopes of print images—whether they’re from your bar mitzvah in the ’70s, your great-grandma’s wedding in 1902, or maybe even from your recent past—into digital form. ScanMyPhotos is known for speedy, reliable service, and for providing detailed instructions about how to send your photos and get them safely back. Though plans vary, one option costs $64.00 for 1,000 scans, with your images converted into digital form and placed on a DVD. Add-on services are available, too, such as image rotation, photo books, and photo enhancements. But the key here is getting those images scanned, and then having them available for sharing and printing and whatever else.
