WHY SCAN PHOTOS?

Paper photographs and plastic negatives can last for generations when they are well protected in an air-tight, moisture-resistant, fireproof location.

However, the problem with paper photos is that it can be destroyed by fire, moisture and rodents and can be stolen by thieves.

Archiving photos is the best way to preserve memories for generations to come. Digital photos take up zero physical space, and with the internet, they can be kept in multiple locations for safe-keeping.
