What is the Best Photo Scanning Service to Use?
Better than advertising is when orders arrive with messages describing how people found us. The best answer is always, “referred by a friend.” And, here is a sampling of what happens after pictures are digitized and returned. These comments are from ScanMyPhotos customers, who we so appreciate.
Julie W: Quick service. I appreciated that. The pictures were scanned beautifully; they look amazing! Thanks! Will use service again!
Thomas B: This service worked great and exactly as advertised. Put your pics in bundles, ship them in, and get your pics and a DVD back in about two weeks. Easy!!
Gabriel P: Received my pictures and they looked great! Happy with the quality of the pictures..
Krista H: Everything went exactly as described. They kept me updated along the way as to where my photos were and in what stage of the process. And I received my photos back in perfect condition. I LOVED the service and even more, the cost.

M. S, Jul 25, 2017:Everything you need to know is on the web sit but, if you still have questions (like I did) just call Scan My Photo. I received my pics along with DVD and memory stick in very little time. Every thing looks as good as the originals.

The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life week and this is one holiday we can definitely get on board with—especially considering we were recently featured in Real Simple Magazine. (It doesn’t get simpler than that!)
So, if you, like us, want to take advantage of this holiday and simplify your life, we’ve got some handy tips to help you along the way. Check it out:
Take advantage of technology
There are so many apps and tech services out there that can make life so much easier. The following are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to using tech to your advantage:
August is our last month to live summer to its fullest potential! So, in the spirit of sharpening our photography skills and taking some time to have fun every day, we’ve decided to create a month-long photo challenge.
The rules are simple: for the month of August, use our daily prompts (listed below) to share one photo per day on Twitter or Instagram. Just be sure to caption the post with that day’s prompt, and use the hashtag #SMPphotochallenge so we can all see what we’re sharing.
Depending on the prompt, you may decide to share a scanned photo from your collection, or take a new photo that day. To make August even more memorable, challenge your friends and family to join in – it’s a great way to stay connected and practice photography.
The August Photo Challenge Daily Prompts
The Big Picture Across America Photo Project
Call to share American heritage from nostalgic photos announced by ScanMyPhotos.com from family photo album archives.
Our local history holds a treasure trove of interesting stories and tales about how our nation came to be. This history is also what helped to shape who we are, where we come from, and/or where we currently live. This is why we’re starting our #PictureLocalHistory challenge for the month of August.
While many historical societies and archivists throughout our country work hard to preserve local history, we’ve found that many of these clues and stories of the past are hiding away in the closets, attics, and basements of our customers.
That’s right—we’ve scanned 400 million vintage print photos that reveal how life was lived in American cities and towns 20, 50, and even sometimes 100 years ago. One of these photos might even be sitting in your closet right now, waiting to be preserved.
So, in honor of World Picture Day 2017—which falls on August 19—we’re challenging every city in America with a very special project: #PictureLocalHistory.
What’s your hometown’s story?
Whether it’s a photo of your great grandfather riding his 1930s Harley from Wisconsin to San Diego or a photo of your great grandmother which shows a day in the life of your Chumash heritage, old print photos highlight bits and pieces of history across America.
And, of course, there are still more pieces out there to be discovered. With 3 1/2 trillion still-analog printed photo snapshots, they are awaiting to be scanned and digitized. These photos could reveal fun, interesting, or crazy pieces of local history—and now is our chance to bring them to life.
