I’m sure I’m not the only one who grew up with a “no instructions necessary” kind of Dad. Four hours later when my ready to assemble desk was still in pieces…I knew it was time I intervene with the manual. As much as you can trust your own instincts, sometimes it is not a bad idea to get outside advice.
Okay - you've finally decided to take the plunge and get those boxes of photos scanned by a professional photo scanning service. Whew! Now how do you get them ready? Photo scanning services like FotoBridge have great information for prepapring your photos to send off for digitizing. Once you get started you will see how easy it is and the rewards are amazing!
Many adults of the baby boomer or older generations have boxes of photos that they rarely flip through. I don't know about you but I can't tell you how many I would find if I went through my parent's basement and attic. The photos remain inaccessible and are difficult to sort through and find what they are looking for. Next time you need a gift for your parents, I would consider digitizing the photos so they can view them on a computer - makes life so much easier!
