What Happened When I Sent My Pictures To ScanMyPhotos.com

More than a year later, we are still receiving feedback from customers who first read about us in David Pogue's "Personal Tech" column in The New York Times. Here is another comment we just received. Thanks, Andrew!

"I first read about scanmyphotos.com in a glowing article in The New York Times. It took me a while but I finally used this service and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I sent my photos by priority mail on a Wednesday, they received the package Friday and I got an e-mail that same Friday that my scanned photos were on their way back to me. I received the photos and the DVD on Monday. It could not have been any faster and the results could not have been better.

I sent the photos from the first two years of my daughters' lives when we were still using a regular film camera. The scans were excellent quality, crisp and clean, and we are so happy to now have all of our kids' pictures digitally saved. I have already pulled down my old photo albums from college and I am eagerly readying another order to be sent to be scanned by ScanMyPhotos.com.

Outstanding service and quality -- could not ask for anything more -- and now we'll have all of our photos safely saved forever."

Thanks,
Andrew M. Wong, Esq.

How to Tag, Share and Easily Identify Your Scanned Photos

Rick Broida at PC World wrote about Google's Picasa 3.5 software to easily tag your photos. Click here to read the article. From the tens of millions of analog photos, slide and negatives that are scanned at ScanMyPhotos.com, the most popular question is how to easily identify and group the newly digitized photos. Picasa has the smart solution to automatically and quickly group your pictures and it is free. It is a quick way to find your photos.




Picasa is free photo editing software from Google that makes your pictures look great. Sharing your best photos with friends and family is as easy as pressing a button! Click here for more info.

Excerpt:

"As you've probably discovered after years of taking digital snapshots, keeping a photo library organized can be a nightmare. Far and away your best ally: tags, which are little descriptors attached to each photo. Unfortunately, it's a major hassle to manually assign tags, which is why I was delighted to see the new automatic-tagging feature in the just-released Google Picasa 3.5."

Companies keep employees motivated in tough times (via OC Reg)

Excerpt from Jan Norman, Orange County Register, September 26, 2009 article.

Mitch Goldstone and Carl Berman, co-owners of Irvine-based ScanMyPhotos.com, continually look for unusual ways to thank employees. During the summer they took the entire staff by limousine to a surprise dinner at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach. Soon they will close the business for three days and take the staff for a luxury visit to Las Vegas. They'll stay in a luxury suite and go to top shows.

ScanMyPhotos.com is a Web-based service that converts pictures to digital format.

"It's important to come up with special ways to let employees know that they are our most valued asset," Goldstone says. "Employees are family to us. They are so highly motivated to do great work. There's no way we could do this business. I can't afford not to reward them."

The result of such staff recognition is that the company has no
turnover and sales have continued to climb despite the recession, he
added

Kodak SmileMaker iPhone App


After your generations of analog photo snapshots are scanned at ScanMyPhotos.com, here is a new way to relive those special moments. Have fun and add a smile to every picture.

The Kodak SmileMaker iPhone app [See: 1000Words.Kodak.com] lets you easily add an assortment of "smiles" to any photo. What fun! You can make ANYBODY smile, give it a try. With Kodak, it's time to smile and then share on Facebook, Twitter and all social networking sites!

The SmileMaker lets you choose from an assortment of smiles to add to a photo you take or pull from your saved photos. You can make the smile smaller or larger, rotate it or add multiple smiles for group shots. Even if you don't have big grins in your photo, no worries... The SmileMaker can turn frowns upside down.

Tips to Help Organize for the Family Trip

Whether it’s a day trip, a weekend getaway or a weeklong vacation you’re planning to take this summer, some pre-travel organizing is vital to ensuring a fun excursion for all.

Particularly in today’s difficult economy, having needed supplies, including cameras, batteries and snacks on hand can save time, money and frustration, according to the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO).

“Being organized for travel is the first and perhaps most important step in planning a trip,” NAPO President Laura Leist said. “Planning ahead and determining what is essential for your trip is just as important as packing the right items and knowing where they are when you arrive at your destination.”

NAPO would like to offer a few tips to help individuals and families get and stay organized during summer vacations.

To save time
• Keep a copy of your packing list on the computer to cut down on time spent recreating it for future trips. Update it before each trip to include new information such as medications.
• Create an itinerary before you travel which lists travel times, hotel check-in/check-out times and a list of activities/places you’d like to visit.
• Map out your route ahead of time if driving
• Keep all documents related to your trip (airline tickets, car rental and hotel reservations, etc.) in a “Travel/Trips” active file for easy retrieval.
• Keep a toiletry bag packed with travel-sized containers year-round. This way, you’re always ready for a long trip or an overnight stay.
• Place items you’ll need immediately at the top of your suitcase, or in a separate
handbag.

To save money
• Think ahead and pack items you may need for various vacation activities, including band-aids for hiking, beach towels and/or umbrellas for the beach and aloe vera for sunburns.
• Make sure you have camera batteries, film and other necessities before leaving home as these items will cost much more at tourist locales.
• Make sure camera and power charger cables are included on your packing list. It would be terrible to waste vacation time and money looking for cords needed to recharge your equipment.
• Review vacation planning guides for your destination to find valuable coupons on dining, entertainment and activities on your itinerary.


To save stress
• Look up the weather in your vacation destination to make sure you pack the appropriate clothing and shoes.
• Begin packing early and only pack what you absolutely need.
• Be sure to leave extra space in your suitcase if you plan on buying souvenirs.
• Organize your wardrobe around one basic color to prevent over-packing. You’ll be able to mix and match easily.
• Check items off your to-do list at least one to two weeks before you travel so you are not pressed for time at the last minute.
• Use suitcase organizers to separate outfits or types of clothing.
• Get your car fully serviced at least two weeks prior to travel so you have time to make any necessary repairs.
• Leave your itinerary and contact information with family or friends should an emergency arise.

Digital Tips Today author, Nancy Hevenor Blogs on Photo Scanning

Reposted from Nancy Hevenor's Digital Tips Today blog:



If you are over 30 you probably have a lot of non-digital photos. And for most people they are still in the envelopes and stuffed in a box or drawer where they are not only accumulating dust they are slowly fading away. Now that even most grandmothers have a digital camera and perhaps a digital photo frame it would be nice to have some of those old photos to look at and and preserve. And the only hope that your children and grandchildren will keep them may be to get them scanned to a digital format to share with them.

I know I was guilty of this problem. I had decades of photos of my children growing up and of my parents and other relatives who are no longer with us. I did not want to lose these images. While they are certainly not photographic art they are precious memories to me that I want to preserve.

So I was delighted to find a website,
ScanMyPhotos that would scan 1,000 photos for only $64.00! I know from personal experience it would take me many weeks of scanning photos to scan that many photos! And it would never get done. They have an even more affordable option where they send you a priority mail box to fill with as many photos as possible and they pay the postage.

I immediately set to work gathering up my old photos and putting them on some kind of order, eliminating duplicated and disasters. Even just this task took me the better part of a week to prepare about 2,000 photos for scanning. I also ordered the photo index book which printed a thumbnail of every one of my photos.

I must say I was delighted with the results. Browsing the book is like watching my children grow in fast forward. I made copies of the disks with the photos to send to my sons and they browsed them all too.

Poll: Top 10 Reasons Why People Scan Pictures


Previous News Article - click here

Why people digitize their analog photos is not always a pretty picture. According to a revised study released today by ScanMyPhotos.com, lamentable events in people's lives top the list of ten leading reasons why people are choosing to have high-speed commercial scans made from their shoeboxes of pictures.

But, collectively, pleasurable family occasions are also an important reason for preserving photographs.

" After and earlier poll of customers, we just asked again, and the results have maintained and mirror those prior ranking. The poll was motivated by wondering why people digitally archive their generations of family pictures that were previously stored in shoeboxes," explained Mitch Goldstone, president and CEO ScanMyPhotos.com.

According to ScanMyPhotos.com, topping the list of ten primary reasons why people want to scan pictures was divorce. "It turns out that the most common reason for scanning pictures is due to divorce and seeking to easily split up photos," explained Goldstone,. His company, ScanMyPhotos.com instantly marry pictures to a digital CD before a divorce takes it away. And, according to Goldstone, "the only thing easy and inexpensive about divorce is deciding who gets the photos; for just $64.00, his company commercially scans up to 1,000 pictures in minutes or buy a prepaid box that holds about 2,000standard pictures for $149.95 [buy two get third free]."

Divorce, followed by funerals and anxieties over fading photos topped the list, according Goldstone, who is a well-known photo imaging industry leader and regular speaker at major photo industry conventions, including PMA, Lyra Research, CES and InfoTrends.

This time, four hundred and twenty people were interviewed earlier thsi year for this revised study which identified the top ten reasons people scan pictures.


TOP TEN REASON TO SCAN PICTURES


  • 1) Divorce (22%

  • 2) Funeral / Memorial Service (15%)

  • 3) Concern About Losing or Fading Pictures (12%)

  • 4) Anniversary Gift / Multi-media Presentation (11%)

  • 5) Reunion (9%)

  • 6) Birthday, Wedding Gift / Multi-media Presentation (9%)

  • 7) Convenience (7%)

  • 8) Genealogy / Sharing / Family History Project (6%)

  • 9) Preservation from Natural Disaster (5%)

  • 10) Other (4%)

[Methodology. According to 420 consumers who were polled by ScanMyPhotos.com during Jan 5-18, the top reason why they chose to have their entire shoeboxes of pictures commercially scanned was impending divorce].

Gadget Gift Guide 2008: ScanMyPhotos.com #1 Most "Thoughtful Gift" Idea

(repost)








Laptop Magazine's annual Gadget Gift Guide 2008 is now on newstands, on page 28 is a listing of four "Thoughtful Gift Giving" ideas, including a Gift Card to Best Buy's Geek Squad, iPod tunes, iPhone customized ideas and... ScanMyPhotos.com as the #1 best idea - converting "photo albums to digital DVDs."


Convert Photo Albums to Digital DVDs
Help them preserve their precious memories with ScanMyPhotos.com, which lets loved ones share photos with family and friends easily. For $64.00, the service will scan [same day] up to 1,000 photos at 300-dpi resolution and burn them to DVD-R discs; if that thousand-pics cap is just the tip of your photo iceberg, you can order a prepaid box service for $149.95 that you can stuff with as many pictures as possible [all free shipping and all same day service]. ScanMyPhotos.com can also produce scans from 35mm slides, 35mm and APS negatives and transfer video to DVD.


Thanks Laptop Magazine and editor Jeffrey L. Wilson for the mention. Because all ScanMyPhotos.com picture scans and all our extra photo products and online and in-store services* are always completed and mailed back the same day, this is a really cool idea that was 19-years in the making. Way back in 1990, our company's customer base was local in the Orange County, Calif. area, today we service orders from around the world.



Separately, ScanMyPhotos.com also made the Esquire Magazine Gift Guide too - click here.



ScanMyPhotos.com - Those shoeboxes of pictures, waiting for the day a scanner brings them back to digital life, are no longer a lost cause. ScanMyPhotos.com will professionally scan up to a thousand of your printed shots and transfer them to a DVD for $64. If she's nostalgic about keeping the originals, they return those in two to three business days post-scan. ($64 per 1,000 photos, scanmyphotos.com) [source: Esquire Magazine]



* Slide, negative and some custom services might take longer than 24-hours to complete.

"Photo Scanning Web Services Save Time, But How Much?" (via Wired Magazine)


Click here to read the photo scanning article in Wired Magazine [Gadget Lab is Wired's hardware blog] by Jose Fermoso.

The reporter calculated it would take him 156 hours to scan just 2,000 photos. ScanMyPhotos.com easily races through 2,000 pictures in about 20-minutes for $149.95 with its free S&H prepaid fill the box service with same day return. Because its entire scanning Southern California full-service photo imaging headquarters has multiple high tech Kodak scanners and can easily digitize hundreds of thousands of pictures in a day, all photo scanning is completed and mailed back the same day - worldwide.

For more info on the company we founded in 1990, click here.


Excerpt:
ScanMyPhotos.com also offers a similar service and scans hundreds of pictures per minute through an unnamed Kodak machine seen in this video.... Its rate of 5 cents per photo is likely the cheapest out of any similar service on the Internet.
