Converting old pics to digital?

Converting old pics to digital? Has anyone done this?


My family has tons of pictures and since my parents divorced my dad has almost no pics of us when we were young except a few that we gave him.


We would all like to have a copy of the pictures from my mom and I saw this in a catalog The Photograph To Digital Picture Converter. at Hammacher Schlemmer and wondered if anyone has one or something like it?


Thanks :)

I wanted to make my uncle a book of his son that is in the army, so he gave me all the prints he had and I went to walmart and scanned them in. It saved them in high resolution so I could have enlarged it a little. It probably would have still been a bit blurry, but some photos were over 20 years old!


That machine looks convenient, but you really just need a scanner and some time! If you have any negatives, they do make scanners or machines that scan those in and make digital copies.

I wouldn't spend money on something like that. Just buy a scanner that you could get more use out of (like a 3 in 1) If you don't want to scan them you could always take them in somewhere and have them do it. Good luck.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
