Big Idea: The Great American Photo Scanning Project


ScanMyPhotos.com is digitally preserving millions of photo snapshots as part of the Photo Preservation Center's Great American Photo Scanning Project.

To promote the need to have the estimated 3.5 trillion analog photo snapshots digitally preserved, The Great American Photo Scanning Project is now underway.

Created by The Photo Preservation Center, and sponsored by ScanMyPhotos.com, this is a big idea.

We share it with you to help promote the goal: quickly protecting generations of family photos that are fading away and inspire people across the country to have their shoeboxes of analog photo snapshots digitally scanned.

ScanMyPhotos.com is providing up to 1000 free photo scans to members of four leading social networking sites. If you are a member of either Flickr, MySpace, Blogger or Facebook you get up to 1,000 4x6" photos scanned to DVD without charge when you mail your properly prepared 4x6" photos to ScanMyPhotos.com; pay $19.95 for return S&H and include the downloadable order form. We just ask that you post a review from your experience with us on your Blog or personal networking page.

The Photo Preservation Center is providing a national network of service providers to compliment the retail and direct mail photo scanning services by ScanMyPhotos.com.
