Organizing and Scanning PHOTOS

We are here to help guide you to create an
organized and usable digital collection

Our photos are in so many different  places we simply can't enjoy them.

What would you do if all the photos on your phone suddenly disappeared?  When you sync them to the cloud, they are not secure - they're just synced. The cloud can be compromised. You should  have a secure copy of all your phone's photos.

What if disaster strikes your home like a fire or a flood? Most people say their photos are the most precious items they have. Are your photos backed up in case of a disaster?

Old pictures are part of your family's legacy. Are your pictures labeled? Will your family know who is in your pictures if you aren't there to tell them?  Are your pictures organized so they can be shared with future generations?

Let us help you get started. We will organize your photos, digital images and media so they are safe, secure, and can be searched, viewed and enjoyed.

  • Save all your scattered digital photos into one central hub on an external hard drive.

  • Build a chronological core file structure  by creating folders based on year-month-day or year-month or theme and add your photos into those folders based on the photo metadata.

  • Rename your photo files in ways that make them easy to find.

  • Provide a written recommendation for your backup plan.

 

Let's get a plan in place for you >

We know that handing your treasured family memories over to someone else can be tough. We use industry standards in digitizing, printing and preserving your images. After your collection is digitized and backed up we can set up a regular maintenance plan so your new photos are always up to date. When properly protecting your Collection, the industry standard is to have it backed up in three places.

 

We can even set up a regular maintenance schedule to bring your files up to date. We can also set up a back up system so your photo files will be safely preserved for the future. We recommend using a 3-2-1 backup (3 copies, 2 different media, 1 stored offsite) whenever possible.
