The catch, of course, is you have to let your pictures out of your possession. If youre like me, you might not feel so comfortable entrusting your precious memories to UPS or the postal service. So this type of service might not be the best choice for irreplaceable historical photos.
On the other hand, if you dont scan or otherwise copy your favorite photosfrom yesterday and todayyou risk losing them should they become victims of a flood, fire or even the family dog. If you have duplicates of photos, batch scanning seems like an ideal solution for getting them digititzed.
In addition to photographic prints, many services will also scan 35 mm slides and negatives. Depending on the service, you can get your scans on a CD, DVD, USB drive or even have them stored online.
Heres a sampling of the services weve found. Know of any others? Post a comment.
