Pictures are an amazing link to our past. Without the invention of photography, many historical events would be nothing but hearsay. The problem with photos is that they are fragile and can easily be damaged or lost to time, erasing that moment that was captured. The good news is that it is possible to scan those old photos and preserve that history forever.
Old Photos and Family Pictures
Some people love the idea of holding a physical picture in their hand or flipping through a scrapbook, which is fine. However, that joy can easily be lost if something like a natural disaster causes a fire or flood that destroys those memories. Having those pictures scanned may not be the original but having the scan is better than losing the photo forever.
The Digital Advantage
Once a picture or slide is scanned, it can be altered digitally. There are many advantages to digital alteration; for example, you can colorize a black and white photo or digitally enhance a blurry picture. Most importantly, pictures can be uploaded to the cloud and accessed from anywhere at any time, so they will never be lost.
History Preserved Old Photos
Much like anything in life, the older it is, the more fragile it is, and if you have photos over 100 years old, they could be disintegrating on their own. These photos need a professional touch to handle them without any further damage, but scanning them is the best way to ensure that they will live on for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
