Photo Scanning and Archiving Your Digital Photos : Why is it Important to Scan Your old Photos and Archive your Digital Photos?

Photos are Your Memories – would you want to take the chance of losing the if your computer crashes, a disaster strikes, or some other force of nature wipes out everything you have?

Old photos start to deteriorate over time losing valuable family history and memories of your life.  By scanning and archiving your digital photos, these memories will stay in tact forever.

wescanfiles.com will take all your old photos, and digitally scan them with the highest possible quality. So those pictures of your ancestors will never deteriorate, and the memories will go on from generation to generation.

Now, once you have scanned your photos into a digital photo, it is essential to organize so you will be able to find the images you’re looking for quickly, without ruffling through photo after photo trying to find what you want.

Not only will it keep you organized, it allows you to share with friends and family much more easily than sending multiple e-mails with megabytes of data  to each and everyone you want to share with.

Then of course there is the safety factor.  By storing your photos off-site your photos will be safe and secure forever.

Tips for Organizing Your Disorganized Photos

  1. Delete any unwanted pictures
  2. Create Folders that are Descriptive such as; Vacation Rome with Family 2011
  3. Rename your photos, if they are not descriptive, by Tagging each photo with Descriptive Names i.e. Emily in front of the Vatican

Now all your vacation folders will be together in a list, and you can find which vacation folder you want to look at. By using the name of a family member first you will find all pictures of that person together. Another method would be to organize your folders by year, and have subfolders within each year.  Just use the method that would be easiest for you to remember.

Now you are ready to upload your digital photos on Kodak, Facebook, My Space, Flickr or any online medium to share with your friends and family.
