Even before digital cameras, Las Vegas was most popular for photos

 

 

In ye olden days, before we took photos on our phones for cloud storage, humans took photos like apes: We pointed an analog camera at something, captured an image on something archeologists call “film,” and then we paid “photo booth people” to develop “negatives” into photos.

 

For 26 years, people have been sending such analog photos to a company called ScanMyPhotos.com, which scans customers’ old analog photos into computers and turns them into digital pictures.

 

Recently, Katy Perry’s dad got old photos of her digitized, which she then put on social media.

 

Now, ScanMyPhotos is using software recognition to analyze more than 14 million of those old analog photos that have been digitized. Results:

 

Some 70 percent of old analog photos submitted to ScanMyPhotos are travel pictures.

 

And Las Vegas is the most prominent city in those photos, beating all Disney resorts, Paris, New York and national parks.

 

Another media outlet claimed Disney beat Vegas, but ScanMyPhotos CEO Mitch Goldstone tells us Disney only beats Vegas is you combine all Disney resorts around the world, from Paris to Japan, so Vegas > Disney.

The Most Popular Photo Ops in America (via CN Traveler)

Thanks to Conde Nast Traveler for profiling the recent ScanMyPhotos.com survey of the top travel destinations according to your photo album.

 

EXCERPT:

 

ScanMyPhotos.com has the top five places spotted in nearly 15 million scanned family vacation snapshots.

 
14,450,240: that’s how many prints the site ScanMyPhotos.com digitized in the fourth quarter of 2015. While printed photos hold their own allure, many individuals are turning to services like ScanMyPhotos.com to ensure their memories last forever. But this year, the service noticed an interesting trend: nearly seven out of ten of those photos were travel related, says CEO Mitch Goldstone. Those over nine million travel scans made up for more photos than family snapshots, holiday photos and special occasion images. The company itself has been around for over two decades and scanned more than 300 million pictures for photo enthusiasts around the world, sending users a flat rate box to fill with photos to be digitized and returned for $145.

 

 

This year, taking in all of the photos the company had scanned in at the end of 2015, ScanMyPhotos.com uncovered the most photogenic and photographed spots around the nation. The most popular destination? Disney resorts, which showed up in 28.4 percent of travel snapshots. The iconic Magic Castle featured in most photos, followed by the big man mouse himself, Mickey. Runner-ups for most popular locale included Las Vegas, which featured in 27.9 percent of photos (a whopping 1.05 million images) and New York City (12.2 percent). Rounding out the top five picks throughout the ages were particularly patriotic destinations. Coming in fourth were national parks, from Yellowstone to the Statue of Liberty, and Washington, D.C. followed closely behind.
