We’re constantly seeing photos on Facebook and hitting their corresponding “like” buttons. But if you look closer, you’ll probably notice that some people don’t have Facebook profile pictures, and/or don’t have any photos or albums uploaded to their page either.
Pictures are worth a thousand words, yet they work so well in the world of 140 characters. I am, of course, talking about Twitter and the impact digitized photos have on this influential platform.

How often have you uttered the words, “I will never forget this moment!” only to discover years down the road that the details of that event have faded in your memory?
Almost everyone has become familiar with technical digital image “lingo,” like TIFF, JPEG, or GIF. When it comes to understanding why these different format types exist, many people are in the dark, and never give formats a thought until they begin to digitize photos and attempt to edit or share them.
So you’ve pulled out all of your old printed photographs and shipped them to a photo scanning service. In the digital age we live in, you may expect every stain, crease, tear, or faded coloring to disappear after photos are scanned. Thanks to advanced scanning technology and editing software that a professional photo scanning service uses, it’s very possible such photos can be salvaged and optimized.

When Google Maps was first released, people were instantly fascinated by the site. How great is it to be able to type in an address and not only get directions, but be able to “virtually” travel to and view wherever you’re looking for – for free?
You don’t have to be a professional photographer to know it’s easy to develop a love-hate relationship with slides. Although the clear, sharp, large images projected onto walls and screens can’t be beat and encourage nostalgic feelings, handling slides can be troublesome. They can also be risky since, like print photos, it’s possible that slides can be easily lost in the clutter of memories.

If you want to digitize photos, you have two options: do it yourself or outsource photo scanning services. If you want to do it yourself, your best bet is to buy a scanner, including special scanner equipment if you need to scan slides or negatives. This can get expensive, especially if you have a lot of photos, slides, or negatives. The best way to scan photos yourself usually requires a high-quality scanner, costing up to $3,000 or more.

There’s no doubt about it: We live in a digital world and can’t wait to see what kind of technology will be the "next big thing." Cell phones heavy as bricks with limited capability were replaced with smartphones; renting movies is now more commonly done via Amazon, Hulu, or movie rental kiosks replacing video rental stores; we’ve traded 8 tracks for cassette tapes, cassette tapes for CDs, CDs for MP3s, and books for Kindles and Nooks.
