PRESERVE YOUR FAMILY HISTORY
PRESERVE YOUR FAMILY HISTORY
We scan and digitize your photos, diplomas, and other important documents.
Save them to a DVD, USB Flash Drive, or to the "cloud".
We're a local family-owned business, but we have partnered with a national company to provide our Tampa area clients with permanent cloud storage that comes with a lifetime guarantee!
Who hasn't laughed when they saw an old photo of a loved one? The hairstyles, clothing, awkward teen years...
Don't lose your precious family photos to water damage. We can help safeguard your memories and documents.
Homes can be rebuilt. A burned photo album is lost forever. Talk to us about keeping your memories safe.
Have you inherited your family archive from your parents and grandparents. Making sense of it all can be a daunting task. We can help.
Whether you have boxes of loose photographs or have them organized into photo albums, we can digitize them for safe keeping.
Digitized pictures are not only safer than physical photographs, they can be viewed (and shared) from almost any place you have internet access.
No, not your New Years Resolution! In digital photography, the word resolution refers to how much detail is in the photograph. Typically, this is measured in units called DPI or "Dots per Inch". A higher resolution will have a higher DPI, for example 300 dpi vs 600 or 1200 dpi.
Yes, they do. When casually looking at photos on a website, we can usually get away with using a lower resolution photo. They also have the advantage of allowing a website to load quickly.
Typically, the resolution of a photo starts to become more important if you plan on printing, zooming into, or blowing-up a photo. If you're just going to use your photos on a website, then a lower resolution is adequate. However, if you plan on using your photos to create framed mementos, holiday ornaments, calendars, etc, then we would recommend going with something a little higher. Expect to make a poster to really celebrate a special photo? Then an even higher resolution scan would be the way to go.
The samples shown here are taken from the same photos as above. At this level of detail, the difference in the photo's resolutions becomes obvious.
There is no easy answer to this question. A lot has to do with what you plan on doing with your photo scans... both in the near-term and in the future. We like to have a conversation with our clients to help them make the best long-term decision. Contact us today so we can help you.
Loose photographs, photo albums, 35mm slides, film negatives. (This is in addition to our video and film transfer services.)
We often recommend saving your memories in the "cloud". However, that might not be what you need. We can also put them onto a DVD or a USB. This is why we really like to have a conversation with our clients to determine your vision.
Not at all. Photo albums can be heavy. We would be happy to come to your home to explain everything to you and pick-up your photo albums. You're also welcome to bring them to our office. We're on Florida Avenue, just north of Bearss Ave, with easy access to and from I-275. Of course, if you really want to ship them to us, that's up to you!
It depends. Given current standards, 300 dpi is adequate for most casual uses and creates smaller file size. However, we tend to recommend 600 dpi to "future proof" your memories. Higher resolutions are also available, but probably unnecessary. Let's talk.
If you like decorating your photo albums with stickers, labels, borders, etc, be sure to ask us about "digital scrapbooking"
We can scan entire scrapbook pages to preserve all the loving details you've created. Once they're digitized, you can store the entire book online and digitally share it with friends.
Once individual photos have been scanned, we can show you how to layout a new digital scrapbook, complete with all the extras you love. You can then order as many printed copies as you want. They make excellent gifts!
