Why You Should Scan Your Photos

Photo scanning is the same as making a backup of your memories. This is because the digital world is here to stay. Digital storage is now the future of all photo storage. Therefore having your old photos in the same, format as your new photos just makes sense.
Most importantly, because life is not perfect. Your photos can fade.

Meaning that the sunlight can erase all the detail from photos in a matter of a few short years. Likewise moisture can creep in, even when stored in photo albums. There is also surface damage from dust mold and mildew. Lastly there are the disasters that happen. Unfortunately it happens all too often. Fire, flood or even earthquakes. We have restored the damage caused by all of these.

Share your old memories on your Facebook. Alternatively send them around the world by email or look at them on your phone. You can make multiple copies and organise your new digital images in a lots of different ways. But most of all share them. Share the memories and enjoy the good times that your photos show.

Slide And Negative Scanning

Viewing slides was a very unique experience. Inviting the neighbors around to view images on a large projector screen from your holidays abroad was a hands down winner over the humble photograph album. But today, the projectors are all gone. The slides are sitting in boxes in draws or in the garage somewhere gathering dust. Never to be seen again.

But we can help. We have the ability to digitize all of those slides and make them useful again. You can now use your TV as your projector and show your holiday snaps to everyone! Not only your slides but also your negatives. Those stripes of small images. That you can't quite tell who is in the photo because the negatives have all look brownish and the colours reversed.
