HuffPost: Preserve Your Precious Photos Before Disaster Strikes

One billion pictures were destroyed just from the flooding due to the ravages of Hurricane Harvey last August. Now, more family memories were ruined from the recent wildfires. While this past Weather Channel explains why there is an urgency to protect your pictures, the Huffington Post shares these new insights and three solutions. Reported by Andrea Smith,  the award-winning technology reporter, producer, consultant, and speaker, shares smart tips to digitize your pictures.


Three Ways to Preserve Your Precious Photos Before Disaster Strikes


Excerpt:


You hear it in each heartbreaking interview with a suddenly-homeless person. “We lost everything, our family photos, our wedding pictures, it’s all gone.”


With the ongoing fires in California, as well as the recent floods and hurricanes that ravaged several states and Puerto Rico, destroying an untold number of homes, it’s time to think about digitizing your precious memories. Losing everything you own in a flood or fire is an unimaginable thought. The good news is clothing, furniture, and even entire houses can be replaced, but charred photos are lost forever.


Yeah, I know, it’s the holidays and you’re busy, but before you move onto the next thing and completely forget about those shoe boxes of old photos tucked away in the attic, or the dusty albums your grandparents left behind, convert them to digital because no one ever counts on a disaster happening.


Scanning Service


We recently talked to Mitch Goldstone, President and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com on my Parenting Bytes podcast.

You can listen to the interview to understand both how important and how easy it is to do, but he said the most popular option is the fill-the-box photo scanning service. Here’s how it works:


For $145, you order a pre-paid box, which you fill to the brim with photos. It holds up to 1800 (I sent in 1300) and the cost includes three-way shipping; a box to you, box to them, box back to you. Organizing the photos can be tricky because most people want to group them chronologically, but they ask you to group by size. You can top each group or select photos with an index card noting the subject, and that will get scanned as well.


ScanMyPhotos handles photos from 3”x 3” up to 8”x 10” and they also offer a photograph restoration service, as well as slide and negative scanning. Processing takes about 5-10 days and is done at their lab in California. There’s an option for expedited processing at an additional cost.


The pictures are scanned at 150 dpi resolution, which is great for sharing on social media and adding to a family slideshow. Higher resolutions (300 and 600 dpi) are available at an additional cost. When you receive your box back, you’ll get all your original pictures, along with a DVD with all the scanned images on it. You can order an extra copy, or have them burned to a flash drive, all for an extra cost. From there, you can upload them to your computer, organize them however you want and easily share them with your friends and family.


Now comes the important part. Make copies of that DVD or flash drive and put them in locations outside of your home. Whether you give them to a relative, send them to your kids, or store them in your safe deposit box at the bank, make sure you have a copy outside of your home, just in case.


In addition to storing a disc with my sister, I also uploaded all the images to Google Photos which uses its image recognition software to help me organize them into albums. And I have the extra security of knowing they’re stored safely in the cloud.

Surprising Mistakes That Are Ruining Your Print Photos

print photosIf you’re like most people, you have a lifetime worth of photos stored in your home. While you may be in the process of digitizing print photos taken before the Digital Age, it’s still essential to preserve your photos.


While you may think you’re doing everything to ensure analog pictures last for generations to come, you may be surprised to learn about the following three factors that can damage your favorite shots.


Underestimating the effect of indirect light


Most of us are aware that direct sunlight contributes to a photograph fading over time, but indirect light can be a factor as well. Even a bright lamp can cause similar negative effects. To preserve the vibrancy of your photos, keep framed shots under UV blocking glass. While this may add to the cost of framing, you’ll be glad you made the investment. If the photo is special enough to be framed, it’s worth preserving. And of course, always make a digital copy of framed photos.

Like to keep snapshots on the fridge? Keep in mind these will fade and curl fast. And remember, if you need help restoring an old photo that’s showing signs of damage, we can help!


Storing precious memories in the basement or attic



The ideal environment for extending the life of your photos is one that’s dark, cool and dry. While attics and basements may be the perfect place to store old clothing or toys, it’s not good for photographs. Depending on where you live, basements can get too humid and are subject to flooding, while attics get hot in the summer if they don’t have climate control.


Instead, store your keepsakes on a bookshelf in your home. When it comes to print photos, the cooler and dryer, the better.
