Photo-Sharing Apps’ Missing Pictures, Solved

Sportscaster Red BarberAre you among the many rhapsodizing about the new photo-sharing apps? Each service enables you to easily find, edit and share photos faster than ever. The tech media’s firestorm of comprehensive reviews, especially for Google Photos were remarkable for empowering you to better enjoy photos. Yet, everyone has omitted the biggest challenge in photography.

 

Photography is about sharing and preserving experiences. The photo-sharing services empower you to find, edit and share photos faster than ever. However, when it comes to the Internet of Things for photography, it is more about recent experiences and things like, the food you ate last evening, or random snaps of events and instant happening you come across.

More than ever, pictures are being shared across all social media platforms and especially using the popular #TBT (ThrowbackThursday) searchable hashtag.

 

The smart and simple answer for searching, organizing, editing and sharing pictures are services like Google Photos, Facebook Moments and Apple Photos

 

But even with the vast increase of photos shared online, estimated at more than1.8 billion pictures each day, something is missing.

How To Be The Official Digitizer For All Photo-Sharing Apps

ScanMyPhotos

ScanMyPhotos.com digitized more than a quarter billion pictures

An open letter from ScanMyPhotos.com President & CEO, Mitch Goldstone,

 

Help make ScanMyPhotos.com the “Official Digitizer for Photo Sharing Apps.”

 

Do you recall the Coca-Cola Company’s popular past slogan “The Official Soft Drink of Summer?”  Based on our quarter century as a leader in the photo imaging industry, ScanMyPhotos.com is working on a campaign to be “The Official Photo Digitizer for Photo-Sharing Apps.”

 

ScanMyPhotos.com is already an unofficial digitizer of analog pictures being uploaded to the popular photo-sharing services. Will you help us become the official, favorite digitizer for all photo-sharing apps?  We are reaching out to you for input.  What ideas do you have to facilitate in our goal of becoming the “official” digitizer for all photo-sharing apps?   Email your comments to: Support -at – ScanMyPhotos.com.

 

Having scanned more than a quarter-billion pictures, ScanMyPhotos.com recognized a challenge for all photo-sharing services; mostly only recent pictures from mobile devices are being enjoyed.  But, those decades of analog snapshots are still relegated to stacks of pictures stored in shoeboxes and are unused.

 

The best new thing in photography is the launch of new, easy-to-use photo-sharing services, like Google Photos™. This is piloting a spike in the amount of pictures we see shared across social media platforms. These intuitive and smart services are the easy answer for searching, organizing, editing and sharing pictures.

 

But even with the pending increase of photos shared online, something will be missing.

 

There are two kinds of photos in this world: digital and analog. The photos you can easily organize and add to the popular photo-sharing and cloud storage services will mostly consist of recent digital pictures from mobile devices—but what about all those analog and print photos?
