100% Satisfaction Guaranteed
If you’re unhappy with the photo digitization results, we’ll reprocess them for free.
There are many reasons to digitize photos, slides, and negatives:
The lifespan of photos, slides, and negatives can vary. It depends on what they're made of, how they're stored, and how old they are. Slides and negatives tend to last longer than traditional photo prints but can still deteriorate over time. Photo prints can fade or yellow quickly if not stored properly.
Photo albums and shoeboxes full of photographs are susceptible to floods, fire, theft, and other catastrophes, but digital images can be saved and shared forever.
Digital copies offer organizational features so you can rename, archive, and add additional information.
Photo albums, photo prints, scrapbooks, and shoeboxes of photographs take up a lot of space, but you can store them in digital format on your computer, a hard drive, a USB flash drive, or in the cloud (via iCloud, Google Photos, or Dropbox).
When you have preserved digital photo albums, your loved ones won’t have to fight over the physical copies of your family memories to enjoy them for decades to come.
It is much easier to share digital photos across the world with anybody using email and social media.

Photo scanner equipment will help you scan photos to digital format one at a time. Each scan will produce a new JPEG file. It requires lots of work but generally gives good results. However, you will pay for good quality digital memories because these machines cost $300 or more. For example, the popular and reputable Epson FastFoto costs $499.99. If you want a more affordable option, then a standard flatbed scanner can work, but the results won’t be as professional in appearance. .
You can use a digital camera or smartphone to take digital images of your physical photos. It’s fast and affordable because you can conveniently perform the scanning routine at home with items you already have. However, the digital copy will end up looking worse than the original photograph because it will pick up glares, dust, fingerprints, and other inconsistencies. It will also reduce the quality and produce a lower-resolution DPI.
Photo scanning apps like Photomyne take advantage of your smartphone technology to scan your photos better than simply using your camera, but the quality of the scans will depend primarily on the quality of your phone’s camera, lighting conditions, and your skill level. Plus, it’s a very time-consuming process to create each digital image one by one.
Our professional service scans your family photos and turns them into high-quality digital images using glare removal, color correction, retouching, and digital photo restoration.
Then, you can receive your digital photos as digital download, or add a USB drive and even a DVD to easily enjoy, view, and share.

For loose photos, slides, negatives, you will pay $29.99 for the first 50. Then, you only pay 50 cents for each beautifully scanned digital image after the first 50.
