Digging Out Old Media

One of the first steps that you will need to take in order to digitise photos is to dig out your old media. Digging out your old media is important as it means that you can gain access to old memories and check the overall condition of your old photographs. One of the problems with older style photographs is that they can wear down rapidly over time if they are not carefully stored and looked after. Furthermore, you may only have one or two copies when you could greatly benefit from far larger copies of older media.

What Is Involved In The Conversion Process?

There are a number of steps that are involved in the digital conversion process. One of the first steps that you need to take is finding a suitable company to take on this work. If you are looking for a good service I would highly recommend you research a businesses reviews as well as reputation before going ahead with any work.

Doing this ensures that you can benefit from a better quality service overall. If this costs slightly more then the small added cost may be worth it as you only need to digitise old media once for it to be permanently stored on a digital platform. 

Another key step you need to take is establishing the time frame for the digital conversion process. This normally means getting in touch with the business to see what timescales they can offer you for having your photographs digitised. 

What Are The Benefits Of The Digital Conversion Process?

There are a range of different benefits that come about as a result of choosing to digitise your photos. Here are some of the main points which I have identified:

  • Your photos become far less susceptible to damage meaning that they can last a lot longer
  • The overall conversion process can be completed within just a matter of days which means you don’t have to spend too long without your media
  • Choosing to digitise your photos is typically low cost and low hassle
  • Services can be arranged online and you can post your chosen photos and have them returned alongside new copies. 
  • Photos on a digital platform can be stored online and shared with family and friends.
