Can you scan 2,000 photos yourself? Yikes, that could take forever, if you could finish at all without your arms giving up first. Thatâ€™s why thereâ€™s ScanMyPhotos.com, launched by California-based photo retailer 30 Minute Photos Etc. Theyâ€™ll do it for you for $100.
â€œFrom Shoebox To CD,â€ thatâ€™s their slogan, because theyâ€™ll scan all the pictures you could fit in one shoebox. You ship them your shoeboxful of photos, then they digitize your pictures one by one using Kodak hi-speed photo scanners to batch scan the images. The photos are then saved onto DVDs as 4×6 sized images at 300dpi, approximately 1.5 or 2 megapixels each, and sent back to the customer without additional return fees. All in a dayâ€™s work.
Havenâ€™t they lost a box yet? The company says each box is marked with a tracking number and no, they havenâ€™t lost a box yet. â€œYou will lose your photos if you donâ€™t send them to us,â€ the company president said.
