Digitizing your pictures might sound like a foreign concept to some, especially if they have boxes of photographs sitting around, collecting dust in their attic or basement. However, if you want to preserve those photographs so that future generations can enjoy them as much as you do, digitizing your pictures – transferring them to digital format – is the best way to do it. If you do not digitize your old photos, slides, home movie films, and negatives, you risk racing your family history.

This is transformative. Photo Scanning has never been easier because ScanMyPhotos.com just overhauled everything with a stunning new kind of website–designed to meet consumer demands.

This is hardly a “Grand Opening,” as ScanMyPhotos.com has preserved one billion pictures since 1990. Built on its 30+ years of photo preservation experience and extensive customer feedback, the reason to reinvent everything was forged from this common complaint: “Your photo scanning is excellent, but your antiquated, prehistoric-looking website was clunky and old-school.”
