Thank You to All Who Serve: Honoring Veteran’s DayOn Veteran’s Day and every day, we’d like to take this time to thank all veterans for their service. Our country’s foundation was built on the shoulders of the strong men and woman who have served and worked hard to keep our freedom free.
We’d also like to encourage everyone to preserve the legacy of the veterans in their lives. We love seeing our customers’ photos of parents or grandparents in uniform. These are treasured pictures, let’s continue to keep them safe.

Photography Tip How to Use Your
Snow scenes are full of bright white color. Your camera will see this and will try to turn all the pure white into grey, leaving the resulting photo looking like a portrait of dirty snow. So, you have to trick your camera in order to take an accurate image of the snowy scene.
Sink into some cozy memories! Use scanned photos to create custom pillows that will look great in any room.

ScanMyPhotos customers send us boxes of family memories for photo scanning every day for numerous reasons, and we have been noticing a trend lately: More and more people are creating photo books to mark special occasions.
One of those customers is Mary Mitchell, who put together a 50th wedding anniversary album for her parents to chronicle their many happy years together. Unlike creating a photo book out of already-digital photos, Mary had to first get hundreds of photos digitized. Talk about a big project!
Of course, it was also a fun project. As Mary told me over the phone, “There was a trip that my parents took my brother and I on – I was 12 and he was 8 – to the Bahamas.

Winter is coming—and this one promises to be hard-hitting.
The West Cost, in particular, is facing a possible El Niño season. It seems as though the effects of El Niño may already be under way with unusual hurricanes, warm ocean temperatures, and an increase in rain fall. For California and coastal regions, the heavy rainfall could mean flash floods and mudslides. For places like Colorado, this could mean harsh winter storms with heavy snowfall.
The predicted below-average temperatures combined with the forecasted above-average perception could spell disaster for residents throughout the southern half of the U.S.
Here at ScanMyPhotos, we’ve been locked onto this developing El Niño story, hoping to gauge the coming intensity and impact. For us, impending storms are serious business.
We’ve heard countless stories about how natural disasters wiped away hundreds of year’s worth of photos, videos, and precious memories. And, as weather man Al Roker said, “Doesn’t even have to be a disaster, you could have a flood in your basement and you’ve lost everything.”
