Three Instant Ways to Digitize All of Your Photographs
Chances are you’ve thought about bringing your old paper photos into the digital age—and that would be a good idea. If your spring cleaning surfaced a trove of precious pictures, digitize them for safekeeping and single-click sharing. Once digitized, these photographs will no longer fade over time in scrapbook albums, boxes, or dusty frames. Instead, they can be organized and easily searched for on a device or in an online cloud, and you can share them with friends and family over social media. They can even be downloaded for memory-keeping projects and personalized handmade gifts. It’s not as laborious as it sounds—and you have options. Here’s a snap-shot from Living photo director Ryan Mesina.
