It hardly seems possible, but digital photography has only been the primary mechanism for capturing memories for a little more than a decade! So, for most of us, there are still many important family pictures in albums, in photo boxes and in frames all over the house. You may have also inherited older family pictures that are literally one of a kind of grandparents and great-grandparents and other family. Over time, these printed photos can deteriorate, lose color and fade, even if you are taking good care of them.
Convert Prints into Digital Images
You may have thought for years about making a plan to convert all of those older pictures to digital images in order to keep an electronic backup for your family, that will stand the test of time.
There are many options for scanning, organizing and restoring photos but, before you head out to Best Buy for the equipment to do it yourself, consider the following:
- Flatbed Scanner: The safest method for scanning older photographs is using a flatbed scanner. While this may take longer than an automatic feeding system, it protects the photos and is less likely to damage the pictures.
- Color and contrast correction: When you convert your older photos from prints to digital, you want to maximize the color and crispness of the photo as much as possible. Professional photo scanning services are going to have the capabilities to enhance and correct your digital photos, leaving them looking their best.
- Extended restoration services: If your print photos have been damaged, it may be possible to restore some aspects of the print color, sharpness, etc. and a professional company has the ability to restore photos that need it.
