Have a family member with a collection of photos crammed into cardboard boxes and photo albums? You can help them convert their collection to 300dpi (or 600dpi) quality JPGs without any fuss with ScanMyPhotos. This package deal will send you a prepaid box into which your photo-hoarder can pack as many photos as they’d like (up to approximately 1800). It takes 5 to 10 business days to scan them; then the company sends back the originals along with new digital copies on DVD.
This is another gift that won’t exactly “arrive” in time for Christmas because there’s some effort required on your gift recipient’s part, but preserving memories is still a great holiday gift. Give them a card and take the time to help gather and package their photos (and access them in digital form once they arrive), and your gift recipient is sure to be happy.
