We Live in a Digital Age
The act of getting out a photo album from the attic is slowly fading into the background replaced by never ending digital options. Photos found on high quality DVDs can be shown on big screen TVs. Whenever anyone talks about pictures they take out a digital camera, phone or computer. You can even share pictures from simply touching smart phones today - what will they think of next?
We also can’t ignore that the rate of families living far apart increases all the time. Long gone are the days of extended family living in the same communities. It is more likely than not to find parents and children living hundreds if not thousands of miles apart from each other today. if you digitize photos you can easily share them with your grandchildren that may live 4 states away from you.
