How to Get Photos “Back To The Future”

How To Stop Your Pictures From Being Erased From Existence


ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 1 300x138 - How to Get Photos "Back To The Future"

Welcome. How to literally travel back in time? Do you remember the scene with the fictional character and the main protagonist in the 1985 hit film “Back To The Future” where Marty McFly’s group picture of his family was fading away?



Why you don’t need a Ouija board or “Back To The Future” DeLorean to travel back in time.


Now you can literally travel back in time. Just as the family photo in the 1985 hit film was being erased from existence, so too are everyone’s pictures if they aren’t digitally protected.


The question is how to preserve and revisit your past family history from fading away to see ancestors from decades-past with newly scanned pictures?



ScanMyPhotos is here helping. And we have a “humble brag” announcement today marking a big milestone. From our Irvine, California headquarters, the bulk photo scanning business we pioneered just scanned our 600 millionth picture. We are grateful to all who trusted us, but there is much work ahead as there are 3 1/2 trillion still-analog pictures to scan before they too are erased from existence.

Picturing Major Life Events – Part 6: Managing Memories through Separation or Divorce

divorceLife is hard to plan for. Seasons change, things happen, and time wears on. But when a major life event occurs, you need to make sure you’re able to see the big picture.


This is why we’re creating a series of posts on the tips and tricks to help manage major life events. These events range from something as simple as spring cleaning (and how it can affect your entire life) to as complicated as divorce or separation. And, of course, we’ll help you determine what to do with those old print photos at every step of the way.

Part 6: Managing Memories through Separation or Divorce


In a recent poll, we asked our customers what was the #1 reason for having their photos scanned and digitized. As it turns out, the need to evenly divide memories due to a separation or divorce was the major motivating factor.


For us here at ScanMyPhotos, we often get questions regarding managing memories during a separation or divorce. We do our best to provide professional and helpful customer service for anyone who is going through tough times—and we stick to our policies during the most delicate of situations. However, in order to make the process a much smoother experience for everyone involved, we pulled together the following tips.


Remember that everyone can receive (and replicate) digital copies


It is far easier to split photos down the middle than it is to divide up any other physical assets. The reason being is that you can easily scan, digitize, and even reprint the photos you’ve accumulated together throughout the years. This way, no one has to walk away with only half of the memories—both parties can have digital access to the photos and keep them for years to come.  Continue reading

CNET Photo Scanning Review on ScanMyPhotos

ScanMyPhotos.com Corporate Headquarters in Irvine, CAAfter digitizing 600 million pictures, and loads of national news profiles, this CNET review by Senior Managing Editor, Kent German is epic.


Everyone at ScanMyPhotos.com works so diligently to dazzle every customer and it is heartening to be recognized in this way.


Memories in a shoebox: Digitizing old photos unlocks a flood of mixed emotions. A weekend project to scan and safeguard hundreds of photos from the era of film was more than just an emotional journey, it showed how technology shapes our memories.



Excerpt:


The entire experience, from the customer service to speed with which my photos were returned, was top-notch and only took a week. If you have a box of pictures sitting around, it’s an easy way to secure them. If you’re pushing the 2,000-photo mark, go for the $145-prepaid box, which the company says will fit about 1,800 prints. If you don’t have that many, scans start at 16 cents each.

 


 

But by sorting and scanning old prints, I have the best of both the print and digital worlds. I still can leaf through my old photos when I’m feeling nostalgic, reminisce with my parents and embarrass longtime friends at milestone birthdays. Now, these mementos also live in the digital realm, and if disaster does strike, I know they won’t be lost forever.

 


 

Though I have a scanner, it works far too slowly (and I’m too lazy) to process more than a thousand photos (my husband contributed his own stash). So, I followed Sharon Profis’ advice and carefully packed a box with prints and sent it to Scanmyphotos.com instead. Just choose the scanning and delivery package you want, pack a box and mail it to the company’s office in Irvine, California. When your scans are done, the box comes back to you, along with electronic copies of your scans.
