Convert Old Media
We all have cherished family photos taken years before the popularity of digital cameras. Don’t let those memories lie unremembered in a storage box—use a scanning device to digitize those photos, slides, and negatives so you can print and share them for years to come.
A photo scanner simplifies the conversion of photo prints to digital image files. Simply insert a photo print, and the scanner will save it as a digital file on a memory card. From there, you can edit or add special effects to the files using media editing software on your computer or pop the SD card into a digital photo frame to instantly enjoy a slideshow display. Some models can also digitally convert photo slides and negatives so you can back up your entire collection for the future.
Print, Copy & Scan
An all-in-one printer can tackle a variety of media tasks in addition to photo scanning. Not only can you convert photo prints into digital files, but you’ll also be able to instantly make copies, print borderless images in seconds in addition to handling your everyday document needs. Many AIO printers have LCDs that let you edit and preview your images before printing them, and some models have built-in memory card slots so you can print without using a computer.
Time, heat, and humidity can wreak havoc on print photos, VHS tapes, and film reels. If you don’t want to deal with the time-consuming endeavor of converting old media to digital files, there are services that can handle the process for you. Often, all you need to do is gather your old media, put it in a box, and ship it to a facility that will digitally convert everything. And to ensure your memories last for years to come, these service providers can also back up your files on a DVD or portable hard drive.
