Attention Photo Lovers: Google Cloud Vision API Enters Beta Testing

google cloud visionIf you’re overwhelmed with digital photo clutter, then Google has some good news for you. Google Cloud Vision API is now entering into the beta testing phase, which means anyone can now have access to this incredible technology.

 

What is Google Cloud Vision?

 

We now have the capability to take hundreds of pictures in the matter of mere moments. These photos are stored on a SIM card, hard or flash drive, or in the cloud and we swear that one day we’ll go through them one-by-one and categorize each photo. For most people, that day never rolls around—yet, inevitably, the time will come when you need to find one particular photo, asap. You’ll sift through thousands of pictures looking for that “nice one the whole family took together on the beach three summers ago,” and waste precious time trying to do so.  

 

This is where the development of Google Cloud Vision can help.

Celebrating Our History with Presidents’ Day

George Washington PaintingWhat started out as a way to celebrate George Washington’s birthday turned into a holiday where we honor the memory of all U.S. presidents past and present.

For us here at ScanMyPhotos, this is a time to once again remember how precious it is to preserve our Nation’s history. Imagine what we could have learned about George Washington if photography or videos had been around—and carefully preserved—since 1776!

While this is only a pipe dream, we can make sure our current photos and videos stay safe for future generations to enjoy. You can start by transforming your analog photos, videos, and/or slides into digital formats today!

Photography Tips
Photography Tip

Vibrant colors add a lot to the photo. Even a little bit of blue sky does wonders as it brings in some elements of natural lighting. If you’re taking a picture of something with bright red in it, the red adds a layer to the photo you won’t get otherwise.

How a Downsizing Project Became a Family Bonding Experience

“A photo of my aunt, mom, cousins and I trying to see our breath on a chilly Christmas Eve”

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.”
