Your precious memories organised and preserved to enjoy.
Do you have old family photos displayed in albums, stored in boxes, or even scattered around the house in various places? Did you know that some types of photo albums can cause damage to the photos they display? Would you like to be able to properly archive your printed photos, slides and negatives, and digitise them to keep them safe for future generations to enjoy?
A photo captures a moment in time, and tells a story of people and places in time gone by. A printed photo might mean a lot to those who hold an association with its subject/s, but if the next generation does not know the people in the photo, or the place that it has been taken, the connection has been lost. It is therefore important to properly document old photos, slides and negatives by scanning them and converting them to digital files.
Once your photo collection has been digitised, each file can be sorted chronologically, and metadata such as location, subject, and information about the event can be embedded, meaning that this information will always be retained with the image, helping to tell the story behind the photo for future generations. Having a digitised photo collection also allows you the option to creatively share your important photographic history with family and friends.
and one that you might prefer to hand over to someone else. As a professional photo organiser, I can help.
If you live in Adelaide, I can personally collect your photos, slides, negatives or albums and arrange for them to be scanned
into a digital format. From there I can organise the digital files, ensuring they are correctly dated and applying metadata.
I can then instigate a back-up system to ensure the files are kept secure for future generations.
As part of my service, I can colour correct and restore any of the digital images where the
original photo/s have been damaged over the years.
After your original, printed photos have been scanned, you might decide to keep them out of their albums and store them in archival boxes – saving space, and keeping them safely preserved. I can assist with this, too.
I know how much your photos mean to you, and will make sure they are handled carefully throughout all of the processes described above.
