Scan My Photos

Best Digital Photo Scans, August 2009

Your Kodak moments are entombed in a shoe box somewhere. Isn’t it time to haul them out and upload a few on your blog? Or at least back them up digitally? If the thought of scanning thousands of pictures seems as appealing as sitting on a cactus, go to Scan My Photos. Here’s how it works: You sort your images by size, pack them up, and mail them to the Irvine-based company, which has become the country’s leading source of quick scans. For around 50 bucks per 1,000 pics, it will convert your hard-copy memories to high-resolution JPEGs, burn them onto a CD, and return them within two days.
