Every person has old photos of family events and programs. Those are safe in albums or in boxes. After some time, you stop thinking about the pictures and the memories are lost. Suddenly, you get the pictures and found a lot damage in. You may get excited and want to share happy moments with family and friends living out of state.

How can you send photos to them? You are able to send pictures in digital format via CD and DVD. Make the digital images either you need to scan or take photo scanning service. Scanned photos, you can send to relatives via CD or DVD or by email.

If you want to scan photos by yourself, you have to have the scanner. You will find two kinds of scanners available for sale. Flatbed scanner is utilized by the majority of people to scan documents and pictures. Film scanner is used by companies and professionals to scan high quality pictures, films and slides. Film scanner is expensive than flatbed scanner.

Now, you have the scanner. Before scanning, you need to take look on every photo. Browse through each one and make certain there is dirt-free and have no marks of finger. If it’s there, remove it with very smooth cloth and soft hand. Clean the glass of your scanner. Place your pictures on scanners. To scan more pictures at the same time, you are able to put it side by side.

It’s Time for scanning. Based on your requirements choose DPI, i.e, Dot Per Inch. Usually people utilizing 300dpi for scanning but I recommend 600dpi for high quality picture. This setting definitely slows down the scanning speedy. After scanning, make use of editing software to finalize the photos. Now digital photos are ready, get it on CD and send to your friends or family. This is the scenario of self photo scanning.

Photo scanning service will help you to get out of all this kind of stuff. You have to send them your picture and your requirements. There are many companies deliver same services with price variation. Scanning Indexing is among the company offering film, slide and photo scanning service.

Before you ship your pictures, you need to organize it in a way that you want in digital format. Also clarify the section such as vacation photos, London Trip photos. The benefit of photo scanning service is that you do not need to be concerned about all such thing that I mentioned in self photo scanning.

One advice “Have a backup copy of digital photos because you never know when the hard-drive will crash or virus will attack on your computer.”.

For me, self scanning and photo scanning service rely on situation and side of requirements. If you have the scanner, time and not worrying about quality, you can scan on your own. Or else, photo scanning service is the smartest choice.
