We will create a slide show for your Paper Photographs just the same as you would get if you have 35mm slides. Please note that we do not intermix Slide Scans with Photo Scans. They can be in the same "Show" or "Chapter" but we do not intermix them unless we charge extra. By that, we mean that we don't put paper photo scan #36 in-between 35mm slide scan #23 and #24. Intermixing takes a lot of extra time. We can make sure they are all in the same "show" or folder on your disk at no extra charge.
Text On Your Paper Photos
If you have any writing on some of your paper photos and it is on the border of the photo, it is going to get trimmed off by our scanner.
The best thing to do would be to use a sticker of some kind and write on it or just write on the photo and put your text inside the border.
Packaging your Paper Photos
Be very careful about using rubber bands on your paper photos. You may put a bend in the photos and damage them. Most people separate the photos by putting them in envelopes that are big enough to hold them without a rubber band. Photos that are not flat may not scan well. Please don't pack them with shredded paper or anything that would cause problems during the scanning process.
Mixing Different Photograph Sizes Together
You can mix different size photos together in the same show. You do not have to separate the pictures according to size.
Here is a good way to make sure all your paper photos, especially if they are different sizes, stay together. Go to your local business supply store and look for "Binder Clips." They come in various sizes and you can get some that can hold a lot of paper photos. Once the photos are clipped together, you can put them into an appropriately sized envelope for further protection.
Paper photos are scanned at 600 pixels per inch and the finished scan is 600 pixels per inch. This is a high resolution image, suitable for printing.
Number of Photos Per "Chapter" or "Show"
We recommend, for organizational purposes, that you do not have more than 100-150 photos per chapter or show. Your menu selections are just going to be much better if you have more chapters rather than less.
If you number the pictures on the back or do other writing on the back, do the marking in pencil and not ink. We had more than one customer who ruined a good part of their photo collection by marking with a permanent magic marker on the backs of the photos. On many of the photos, the ink offset onto the picture below. Please avoid this heartbreaking situation. Use pencil.
