  • This is pretty cool!

    I have a pile of old pictures my dad gave me, and a flat bed. For some reason the effort never seems worth taking. Definitely cool.



  • Yeah, my next vacation to home, I am going to spend some time to get those old photos! 🙂



  • A major advantage here is that you can snap just a few whenever you have time. When you have to use a scanner, most people want to make sure they have a fair amount of time in front of them so they can accomplish most if not the entire task.

    Now, got 5 mins, OK let me take a few pictures.

    And in your case, assuming there isn't a scanner where ever vacation is, now you don't have to bring anything other than your phone. Heck, you could teach your parents to do it easily enough.



  • I have a scanner,... okay,.. four really. But the dedicated Scanner can also do negatives, which if you had an automatic negative scanner this is better.

    Sadly - about 90% of my photos from years ago are gone.. I wished I knew where they were... but I'll not know...

    I do a decent amount of digital now,.. but there is the draw back on that is they never get printed..

    But is it really a draw back? what stops you from printing them? Why do you want them printed?



  • My mom has atleast 5 bags of photos from my childhood and am gonna teach her to do the scan when i go next time-connect to google photos-share that with my account! I get the full library and she gets something to do on her free time 🙂 Win-Win
