New report shares how to digitize your pictures
Do you have tons of photos sitting around that you wish you could digitize? It’s easier to digitize old photos than ever before. We’ll tell you how to get started. Yes, that’s me, probably around 5 years old. There’s a lot you can tell about a person in a picture…or perhaps, in this case, my parents!
Use a scanning service. The Internet is full of scanning companies who will scan your loose pictures. A company like ScanMyPhotos, has been around for 30 years, located nearly in my backyard in Irvine, CA.
They’ll send you a 11″ x 8.5″ x 5.5″ box to fill with your pictures (can fill with nearly 1,800 photos). Send it back and they will scan them all and send it back in 300 dpi True Color for $278.95, including shipping your pictures along with the DVD back to you.
If you’re nervous about mailing your photos, you can go directly to ScanMyPhotos in Irvine, CA, if you live nearby.
If this price sounds high to you, just for kicks, I visited Costco.com to see what their pricing would be for 1,800 photos. I did the math and their price came to over $576! Yikes.
