Archive your old photos before its too late
If you happen to be one of those people that still have a large amount of old photos or slides from years past, then it’s probably high-time that you get those digitally archived. Not only will slides and pictures deteriorate over time, but the longer you wait to convert them to digital, the more time you have to lose or misplace them. Luckily, if you do still have the slides or negatives of your photos, it’s actually quite easy to quickly digitally archive your photos.
There are two main ways to get the pictures converted to digital.
First, you can have a professional service archive them for you. This is certainly the no-hassle way to archive photos, but it can be a bit pricey too. The second, and perhaps better way, to archive your photos is to use a purchase a slide to digital picture converter and do it yourself. These converters can take either slides or negatives and quickly scan them into a digital format on your computer. In fact, depending on how many pictures you intend to archive, buying the converter will usually save you money over a professional service. Plus converting them yourself gives you complete control over cropping and retouching the digital copies as you’d like. Either way, in the end you’ll have preserved your memories in a digital format that will last a lifetime and more.
