Scanning Old Photos from Home

Are you ready to start scanning your old photos?

The pandemic has created all kinds of project time for all of us who are staying safe at home. We’ve seen so many people digging out their shoeboxes of photos from their childhood or dusty boxes they’ve inherited. The boxes are filled with fading and fragile photos and are filled with images that make us remember so many stories.

If you’re lucky enough to have these old print photos and you’ve never done anything with them, there’s no better time to get started!

Take a moment to let go of the guilt – maybe you just haven’t had the time until now. Maybe you’ve put it off because it’s hard to open the boxes because of the flood of memories of very different times than we’re currently living in. Whatever your reason, we encourage you to be gentle with yourself and tackle this project.

You’ll be thrilled with the results if you take the time to get a quality photo scanner and start scanning these precious print photos. You’ll have a digital copy that can be shared with family and friends. The time you spend doing this is cause for celebration!

  1. Just a question about scanning photos from an old photo album that won’t easily be taken apart (I may have to but it will destroy the album).

    1. Hi Janice – we recommend that you scan the whole page first and then you can take apart and scan individual photos. Or you can take photographs of the pages before you take the scrapbook apart so you can have reference photos if you want to “rebuild” the scrapbook in the same order it was first made and create a digital album. Let us know how it turns out!
