Lee’s family sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner 1958.

After digitizing pictures, here is how to better enjoy your photos


Years ago, photo albums were meant to organize our photos and keep them safe for future generations. However, unless archival-quality albums were used to store your treasured pictures, the acidic paper of a photo album can deteriorate printed photos over time.


This is the dilemma that ScanMyPhotos customer Lee Jackto is currently facing with her parents’ photo albums.


“My mom has about 25+ albums that are decaying rapidly—the pictures are turning yellow and are stuck in that acid-type folder paper. These albums contain pictures of me growing up, starting with my baby photos, and pictures of my parent’s wedding—overall there are about 50 years worth of photos in them.”


Lee did some online research to find a company that could scan her photos and restore some of the quality. She discovered ScanMyPhotos from a CNET recommendation and decided to move forward.

Record a touching video message


If you really want to make Dad smile, make him a video with a special message from everyone in the family. Record your siblings, close family members, and friends saying what they love most about him. Creating a video is easier than you think. All you need is a smartphone, and a simple editing software like iMovie, which comes standard in newer Apple computers.


Don’t feel tech savvy? Ask a friend or family member who knows how to use editing software for help.


Buy a magazine subscription


Solid reading material always makes a wonderful gift. Whether you have a new idea for a publication Dad will love, or happen to know that his favorite subscription has lapsed, this gift is one that’s easily purchased and ready for delivery in under five minutes. We found this useful link from Amazon for the top men’s interest magazines and how to order.

For movie buffs who want a wider scope of films than what Netflix has to offer, there are alternative streaming services with a focus on harder-to-find classics.
