Scan, Scan, Scan!

Earlier this month Robbin and I started scanning photos from our old photo albums.

I had no idea we had so many pictures! So far we've completed 11 albums, with a total of 2,141 photos!

Many of the photos need "work", so after we get the scanning done, we use PhotoShop to correct color, remove "uggies" (blemishes), crop and do whatever we can to make them as good as possible.

There are companies that do photo scanning, at a price of about 28 cents per picture. That doesn't include any kind of corrections or adjustments. So far that would have cost us $599.48. It's more work -- and time -- to do it ourselves, but the results are worth it.
