Local Photo Scanning Comes to Southern California

What began as a local photo business back in 1990 grew into an international photo digitization solution to preserve millions of photo memories worldwide. Over time, ScanMyPhotos.com garnered reviews from the leading tech reporters, but it shifted away from local customers for online ecommerce ordering.

Today, the company is launching an identical service emphasizing quick and affordable scanning of photos, slides and negatives for walk-in customers throughout Southern California. This is launched just in time for those dreaded Southern California wildfires, mudslides and other natural disasters that can destroy your precious photo memories forever. In the aftermath of a disaster, your insurance usually covers the replacement of possessions that have a monetary value but items with emotional value can never be replaced. Those shoeboxes and albums of family photos tucked away in your closet or attic are often overlooked until it is too late. Family photos can also be lost due to neglectful storage, sun exposure, water damage and deterioration over time. Preserve your photo memories today and enjoy them for generations to come by having them professionally scanned and digitized by ScanMyPhotos.com.

How do you drop-off your photos, slides, negatives and videos?


Reserve a time to walk-in your order by submitting a simple appointment request. ScanMyPhotos.com requests at least one full business day’s notice between your online submission and requested appointment time.

After you’ve scheduled your appointment, prepare your photos, negatives, slides and videos prior to your reservation. Conveniently drop-off your order at the ScanMyPhotos.com Irvine corporate headquarters, located at 3 Corporate Park, Suite 160, Irvine 92606 with ample free parking.
