Bogged down with boxfuls of family photos to digitize? We show you three ways to speed up the scanning process.
Scanning your family photos, slides and negatives opens up many possibilities. You can use the digital images in your genealogy software and share them with relatives on a CD, DVD or photo-sharing Web site. And though you certainly won't want to discard the originals, digital copies serve as backups in case disaster strikes.
The catch: Scanning photos one by one is time-consuming — especially if you have hundreds or thousands of pictures to convert. There's got to be a better way, right? We dug into different digitizing options and discovered three routes to swifter scanning.
