Product Review: ScanMyPhotos.com
I still have an emotional attachment to these captured moments, but not a physical attachment to the paper photos themselves. I planned to digitize them long ago, but never got around to it. I finally decided to do it, using ScanMyPhotos.com – the decision based on a post I did about photo digitization.
Scanning the family photo collection
Excerpt from Jeri Danski, Unclutterer!
I have boxes and boxes of family photos (some from the 1920s) I’d like to scan in and put on CDs (is that a good way to save them?) and also put on a website where family members can access them and print out what they’d like to keep. How do I even get started? How do I organize the project? I’m overwhelmed just thinking about it.
Many people have happily used scanning services. Erin used ScanMyPhotos, as did a recent commenter, L. Charles. The company takes your prints, negatives and/or slides, does the scanning, and ships you back a DVD with those scans (along with your originals).
Save Your Family Photos from Disasters – Digitize Them!
Excerpt from Mom With A Prep:
Scanning Bulk Photos: “This option takes just a bit of faith, but my experience has been awesome, as well as others that I know. You can send a whole shoebox full of photos (of relatively the same size) to a company and have them mass scan them all for you for a single fee. It saves you TONS of time (because your time is valuable). They will send you back your photos plus a DVD of your photos scanned at 300dpi. There are companies like Scanmyphotos.com and many others….”
Excerpt via Wells Fargo, from The Huffington Post:
“The saying goes that the early bird gets the worm. But success isn’t as simple as waking up before everyone else. It’s about what you do — or don’t do — in those first hours of the day. We partnered with Wells Fargo and asked several small-business owners to share the simple morning habits that help keep them positive and productive all day long.”
“Mitch Goldstone, president and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com, reviews the previous week’s orders and sends flowers to two dozen customers every weekday as both a thank-you gesture and a way of recognizing the memorial services, anniversaries and life milestones that brought them to his site.”
