Here is an email I sent to a bunch of friends and neighbors praising ScanMyPhotos.
I have something you may (or may not) be interested in. It is getting your old family photos scanned. Suzi and I did it several years ago with ScanMyPhotos and were delighted with the results. (Attached are examples.) We just send in our second box of 1,800 photos, some going back to 1909. I will add that our kids liked getting a thumb drive with all 1,800 pictures on them. Suzi and I like the fact that ALL the pictures will go to each of the kids right now… they are not going to have to sit around a table and divvy them up someday.
The quality of the photos we got back is better than the photos I sent them. As we all know, photos deteriorate over time. But today there are algorithms that help bring back the color and resolution. So, as with the samples I’ve attached, the scanned images are not as good as when we originally brought the photos home. But they are much better than what I sent ScanMyPhotos. Also, on the batch I just sent in I ordered a photo enhancement extra that was not available last time I ordered. So my next ones ought to be better than these samples.
It is simple to order. Just put the pictures in a prepaid box that they send you and take the box to the post office. Then they send you back the pictures along with a DVD with the scanned images. (Getting them on a jump drive instead of a DVD is one of their extras.) I have to tell you that it is a real pain to fill the box. We went through all the pictures, sorted them by size, filled out a Word doc summarizing the contents each year, and rubber banded them together. We did it over a month or two, so I don’t know how much time it took. But I’d guess we’re talking about 3, 8 hour days if we did them all at once. It was fun seeing all the pictures again, but the sorting and classifying was a pain. So be aware: The pain for us was greater than the cost of getting the pictures scanned. But we’re still glad we did it. If you end up getting photos scanned, let me know and I have some tips that will save lots of time.
