We actually noticed the article due to orders flying in. We ask customers how they heard about us? The answer: “O Mag.”

Photo Organizing with ScanMyPhotos, the Review

Photo Scanning Review

Amy Slenker-Smith, the organizer and unclutter expert who publishes Simply Enough, shares here project to digitize pictures and details how she handled it by using ScanMyPhotos.com.

Excerpt: Perhaps you have a pile that looks like this? Fear not, you can turn this into organized digital photo albums to share with friends and family.

Several years ago, I owned 12+ photo boxes. By sorting and purging, the very best photos went to a few archival quality albums. Thousands of pictures were thrown away….yes, in the trash. Even baby pictures and wedding photos!

Do you have a box of black and white family photos tucked away somewhere? Are you unsure of the people in them? Unfortunately, passed down photographs rarely include important details.

My Grandma Alice was a rare exception. She detailed information on photos and sorted them into envelopes for her kids. My cousins and I spent hours looking through them. What a gift she left us years later. Inspired by her efforts, I scanned the photos including this info and her handwriting as well.

If you prefer, use a Scanning Service such as ScanMyPhotos. I love this service. With my box of 1,800 photos, I had a great experience! I opted for “Scan in Order” which was well worth the additional cost to maintain the labels I created.

“I spoke with Mitch Goldstone, co-founder, and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com He said that the average person has over 5000 photos stored in their home and that the greatest time for copying photos is when there is a death of a grandparent, parent or family member or when there is a divorce in the family. And, if a disaster happens then it is too late. So, think about preserving your photos as you do your spring cleaning. This is an easy and affordable solution for digitizing and preserving priceless memories.”
