In today’s all-digital world, consumer demand and a new tech innovation led to one cent photo scanning.
IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) April 25, 2019
Unless your car requires premium-grade high-octane gasoline, you are wasting money. Pumping the higher priced premium fuel when your vehicle requires regular is a cash guzzler.
The same is true when it comes to digitizing pictures. The actuality is like premium gasoline, ultra-high photo scanning resolutions are not always required.
According to ScanMyPhotos.com, which has digitized 600 million pictures, if you are just uploading newly scanned photographs to social media photo-sharing apps, you are squandering your money.
After asking 480 recent customers how they shared their scanned snapshots, nearly 80 percent revealed they just post to sites like Facebook, Instagram, Snap, and Twitter.
If you drive a high-performance car or are a professional photographer archivist, the top grade is the way to go. For photo scanning at ScanMyPhotos.com, the three digitization resolution grades are 150 dpi (1 cent each), 300 dpi (8 cents) and 600 dpi (16 cents). Compare this to buying a DIY scanner which may cost $600 before the time and labor of digitizing a single photo. Or outsourcing where prices range from 40 cents to a dollar and according to PC Magazine [April 8, 2019, “Get Organized: How to Scan Your Old Photos,”] may take months to return.
ScanMyPhotos.com Launches One Cent Photo Scanning
Inspired after being profiled in Oprah Magazine for the top ways to declutter your home by digitizing pictures, an idea was hatched.
If you heard the term the “Oprah Effect,” it is real and powerful. Many readers responded by explaining they had 5,000 and 10,000 pre-digital photos. They sought a more economical way to digitally preserve their nostalgic family history.
After 6 weeks of testing, the feedback led to ScanMyPhotos.com being the first photo digitization service to launch a new way to unclutter decades of analog photographs with photo scanning as low as one cent each. The lessons from billions of pictures destroyed by hurricanes and wildfires were also the foundation for an urgency to pioneer a new way to affordably protect photos.
Mitch Goldstone, ScanMyPhotos.com CEO explained “The photo scanning resolution paradox is just like choosing which gasoline grade to pump. Do you know anyone who uses high-octane premium gas in their car even though it only requires regular? The same is happening when scanning photos. Too many people are having their pictures digitized at the highest super-premium resolution when they may only be uploading their photographs to social media sites.”
Just like at gas stations, ScanMyPhotos.com, the photo digitization experts, do feature all three grades from 150, 300 and 600 dpi with instant ordering online. There is a $40 minimum charge that is applied to the order which means if 4,000 photos are scanned without any add-on enhanced services, the cost is $40. Among the most popular add-on features are same-day scanning and instant uploading of the digitized pictures.
