Photo Scanning Life Lessons: Choose Your Favorites

Life lessons surround us and we have learned so many things hidden in the lessons of scanning photos.

Some are deep and emotional. Others are common sense reminders we need from time to time.

Here is a lesson learned: How about you just grab your favorite print photos and scan them first?

Seriously! Scan your favorite photos – how much sense does that make?

The daunting task of scanning every print photo in all the boxes. And envelopes. And drawers. Who said we have to do that?

What if you start with any old photos in frames around your house? And when you open the boxes, what if your immediate goal is to sift through quickly and grab only those photos that “move you”. Whatever feeling you get that makes you catch your breath or gives you goosebumps. Maybe they make you laugh out loud. Or tears well up in you eyes.

Yep, those are the favorites to scan right now.
