Digitize your photos

Every home has got few old thick (sometimes dusty) photo albums kept safely somewhere which comes out only when relatives, friends and guest gather. Since these photos are not on your hard disk drive but on paper and that too quite an aged, it’s sure that whenever the album is taken out, it gets slightly damaged. Not only when you see them but keeping the printed photos in no matter how much care, these photos tend to lose the gloss. What if you don’t have the negatives of all these photographs? Will you let the old memories go in dustbin after some years? Definitely not! What you need to do is preserve these photographs in digital format so that these photos last forever without losing their originality. There is a service called Gophoto which will handle the entire photo scanning process for you and saving you from the trouble of scanning each and every photo. So how this works? Very simple, all you need to do is mail them your old photos/negatives and they will scan each and every photo and upload it on their website which can be viewed only by you. During this process they also correct minor flaws in photos like red eye or color/contrast etc. Very old photos that develop scratch or any other defect will also be checked. Now when you check your photos on their website you can reject the photos that you don’t want to share and select only those which you want to keep, and guess what, you pay only for those photos which you keep! After the scanning and correction work is complete, Gophoto will return your original photos along with a free CD/DVD which will contain all photos in digital format so that you can view them on your computer or TV anytime and anywhere you want.
