As a resident artist at Robo Gumby , its fair to say I have a good grasp on technology and its uses. I recently tried using a photo scanning service and was pleasantly surprised with the results I got. So in this article I will share with you my own unique experience of using a photo scanning service and explain the different benefits that can come about as part of using this service.
Old Photos And Media
Old photos and media are important to preserve. With more and more new technology being developed every day , it is important that we are able to keep hold of and preserve older media on unsupported formats. I know personally in my attic there are VHS , photographs and old cameras strewn across several parts of the room. I managed to collect and condense a set of old salvageable photos that I wanted to get transferred onto a newer and more sustainable media platform.
One of the unique things about older photographs is that they need developed. Before the age of digital cameras older photos were developed in order to produce a picture. This was a skilled process which needs to be done carefully so that damage to the photograph can be avoided. If photographs are not developed properly then they may not appear accurate or well described.
I became motivated to try and use a photo scanning service for some of my old photographs as I wanted them on a more portable and accessible format. It can be difficult to illustrate or draw old media. Therefore the concept of being able to access this media on a computer or other digital platform is a brilliant way through which the media can be preserved/ stored more easily.
My Experience With Using A Photo Scanning Service
Before enquiring , I had never considered using a photo scanning service. One of the main motivators for me reaching out to the digital conversion company was the website and also the contact options. They had a fast and well laid out website as well as an easy to use contact form. This helped streamline the contact process and I enjoyed a quick and easy discussion about what my requirements were and how the process would be conducted.
In addition to this , the prices were advertised were very affordable which meant that I was more inclined to choose this service. What I learned is that by scanning my photos using this unique service , I could use them on multiple digital platforms thanks to storing them with a USB. Furthermore , I also received my original copies which I could choose to store if necessary.
Therefore , to conclude I would say that this service was highly beneficial. It meant that I was able to store some of my older media and put it onto a more viable digital platform. I found it to be the best quality and value service that I could find anywhere online.
