photographers and scanning services

MY SCANNER RECOMMENDATIONS
(I only recommend scanning services who do not outsource their work!  Please tell them Jennifer Wise sent you.)
  • West Coast Photo Scanning (CA)  Melodie has a private mailbox so your photos aren't left on her porch. http://www.westcoastphotoscanning.com/.  She also offers photo organization services and custom photo books and scrapbooks as well as photo gifts.
  • A Page is Turned (CO)  Ed can also enhance photos, restore damaged photos, and provide video-to-digital services, too.  http://www.apageisturned.com/  He also offers digitizing of any "old" media such as cassette tapes.
FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF SCANNING
If you'd like to scan your own photos, here are two options:

  • Many photo processing centers (like Walmart) have scanners available.  You sit down at the kiosk and do your own scanning, then save your scanned photos to a CD or thumb drive.  Contact individual photo processing centers for cost information and availability.
  • Most Family History Centers have scanners that are free to use.  Family History Centers are located inside some LDS churches around the world.  {This map} will allow you to find a Family History Center near you with its specific hours of operation.
