A lot of us have old family pictures and slides sitting around. Some of them are not in the greatest condition, and we want to preserve them but don’t know how to do it.
There are businesses that specialize in restoring old photos. Slide scanning and picture scanning services can apply the latest digital technology to bring your precious memories back to life. Their fade restoration process will make the oldest photos look new again.
Nearly 25% of us say our pictures are a more valuable means of documentation than even our birth certificates or our Social Security cards. And of that group, women are twice as likely as men to feel that way. We have a lot of pictures of our children, but 52% of parents surveyed have done nothing to protect them from the ravages of time. And almost half have no idea how they will share them with family members in the future.
Restoring old photos is something most of us would like to do if we had the time and the proper equipment. But the job can be overwhelming when you have a large accumulation, some of which will likely require special attention because of their age. Just scanning your photographs alone would take many days.
It’s surprisingly affordable to have a professional convert those pictures and slides to digital format so you won’t have to worry about them deteriorating any further. And, that will give you the ability to share them online, email them or just easily make quality copies for as many family members as may want to have them.
Check with a local or internet company that advertises the service of restoring old photos to get more details about the options available to you. There should be “before and after” examples available to show you how impressive the restoration results can be.
