    100FREEBPR exp 11/15/08

    I'm so excited to learn about this. you mail them a box of pictures & you get digital images on a CD/DVD back.

    I've gone through the tedious process of scanning so many kid pics. I planned on doing more in the future, but now I'm just doing this.

    I placed my order for the 100 free scans. You print a pre-paid shipping label, put the pics in a box & drop it off at UPS. Shipping for my 100 free pics was $8.

    Also, you can send in up to 200 pics and pick the 100 you want.

    without the code, it's 24 or 27 cents a picture.

    I'll update once I get my pictures scanned. They do red eye removal & color correction, too. It takes about 2 1/2 weeks.

      Thanks so much for posting this.

      I have so many photographs going back over 30 years or more and many of them are in albums in chronological order, only thing is I started before acid free or archival paper were readily available. Many of my photo's including my own wedding ones are yellowing already. I figured at some point I would have to go through them all and scan some of the important ones. What I could do now is select a combination of negatives and photos and send them all in, or even send the whole album.

      Still a daunting task to go through the boxes of negatives I have and the over 20 albums with 400 photo's in each . . .

                I just checked and they don't accept orders from Canada...yet. Under FAQ, it says they are working with US customs to figure out how best to do this and hope to accept Canadian orders soon. If I start sorting my pics now, maybe by the time I'm ready, they'll accept our orders :)

                Thanks for posting, Morgan!!

                  Thanks for the heads up about the Canadian orders. I know that I have to do something with our photo's eventually. It's such a daunting task and I'm seriously procrastinating on this one.

                    Will they scan professional pics too? There's one that I really want of me and FI at my sisters wedding, but I know that places like wallgreens and CVS won't scan professional pics. I wonder if shutterfly will... hmmmmm
