“You Need to ‘Back Up’ Your Old Print Photographs”

Tony Bradley at CSO Magazine, which provides news, analysis and research published a detailed review on ScanMyPhotos.com.


I did some digging for my own personal needs, and found ScanMyPhotos.com. The company offers a variety of scanning services, including scanning of slides or negatives, but the service that caught my attention is the Prepaid Photo Scanning Box. For [$145], ScanMyPhotos will scan up to 1,800 print photographs at a resolution of 300dpi and put them on a DVD for you. If you want higher resolution digital images, you can opt for 600dpi scans for [$235].


The process is pretty simple. ScanMyPhotos sends you a flat, prepaid USPS Priority Mail box to ship your photos.

ScanMyPhotos estimates that the box will hold roughly 1,800 standard print photographs.
