organization and scanning
We help people get their digital and printed photos organized, and processes set-up for them to stay that way! This includes...
- getting digital photos off computers, phones, cameras, external hard drives, old computers, flashdrives, dvd/cds, etc. and into an organized, safe place that is backed up. We work with both PCs and Macs;
- getting printed photos out of drawers, developer envelopes and clear plastic boxes sorted, and into photo-safe locations; and,
- scanning to help you preserve and share your photos.
We provide in-home, remote and offsite services in half-day sessions.
how it works
We start with a phone consultation to talk about your goals. From there, we schedule our first session, develop a customized plan that considers your entire collection (including your printed photos, digital photos and videos) and get started.
Photo organization packages
Please contact us with questions and pricing information.
Additional services and products can be added to all packages, including additional sessions and products to help us complete the project such as scanning, photo-safe storage, photo organizing software, etc.
We provide premium scanning services, which includes attention to each individual image. All photos and memorabilia (up to legal size 8.5x14) are scanned locally at 600 dpi. Basic color correction and enhancement, and basic file renaming (e.g. SmithScan.jpg) are included. Additional editing and color adjustments, as well as keywording to allow you to search on your photos, can be requested as an additional service.
You will receive your original back, along with a .jpg file on the media of your choice. Options include a flashdrive or cloud option (e.g. Dropbox). There is an additional $15 charge for flashdrives on orders less than 200 scans.
Ask us about additional copies for family and friends, as well as prints. Additional copies on flashdrives are $25/copy.
