The ScanMyPhotos.com Journal:Celebrating Grandparents’ DayEach year on September 13, we celebrate a wonderful holiday that honors the grandest of people in our families and lives. Grandparents Day is one of our favorite holidays here at ScanMyPhotos, but sometimes the day will sneak right past everyone without much notice or fanfare.
If you forgot to do something special for your Noni or PapPap, it’s not too late! You can give them the gift of preservation by sending a ScanMyPhotos e-gift certificate their way. It’ll be a great way to honor their legacy and memory for generations to come.

Photography Tip How to Use Your
In order to make sure your photos don’t look as fuzzy as a Big Foot picture, you’ll need to determine which shutter speed is best for your picture. Use Shutter Priority mode to start and then increase or decrease shutter speed as needed.
Not sure what to give the grandparent who has everything? Load up a digital picture frame with a ton of smiling photos of you and the family, and give it to your grandparents to proudly display on their mantel.

Welcome to this week’s episode of Tales From the Pictures We Saved.
We’ve spent the past 30 years helping our customers preserve tens of millions of happy memories, milestones, achievements, and events—all of which have incredible stories behind each and every photo.
And now we’re eager to share these stories with you.
In this week’s episode, ScanMyPhotos customer Margaret Hoybach shares the details on her incredible life as illustrated by over 50,000 print photos.
You might think you have a lot of print photos sitting in your attic or closet, but how many do you really have? We often hear customers say they are working on scanning 1,000, 3,000 and sometimes even up to 10,000 print photos they have laying around, but this is the first time, in a long time, where one customer shared with us that she has over 50,000 print photos in her possession that she needs to have scanned.
Do you have a photo story to share?

This episode features music by Bensound.com. Margaret was voiced by voice-over actress Norma Jean Gradsky.
An exciting announcement!
After 29-years of constantly reinventing the photo imaging industry. Most recently with one cent photo scanning, instant uploading, and same-day scanning, the next adventure is a new corporate headquarters. But, it is not much of a move as we are on the same campus, just another building. We switched from 3 to 7 Corporate Park in Irvine, CA.
You are the reason for our phenomenal success!
Grateful to you from Mitch Goldstone, Carl Berman, and the entire ScanMyPhotos.com family

Did you know that one of the biggest recent break-out pop stars, Meghan Trainor, created a vision board to map out her success? Before she made it to the top of the charts, she used a vision board to remind her of what she wanted to achieve, including a record deal, and a photo of the Grammy’s. Trainor then went on to achieve those things and more—and you could do the same in the coming New Year.
Now’s the perfect time to create a New Year’s resolution vision board that will help you paint the picture you want to see for your life in 2019.
What is a vision board?
