    Default Transfer old family photos to CD?

    Has anyone had this done? Larry's older sister is the keeper of the family photos now. I was going to offer to pay to have them transferred to CD's for Larry and the younger sister if it doesn't cost a fortune!

    That shouldn't cost more than a little time, CD's, a photo editing program, a computer and a scanner. All of these items can be used for so many other things, so it is not a loss of money.
    YOu can even each get a external harddrive and have her scan and transfer to the harddrives, where you can then make copies of them.

    She doesn't have any of that Allie, and is not close by. I was just going to send her into a camera store and pay someone to do it, after she gets them in order.

    Would she consider sending them to you so you could do it?

    I don't want to. I have hundreds of my own that are sitting in bags waiting for me to get to them. (And have been for five years!) LOL

    I was going to do that with my family's photo's after I scanned them, but you can't put many on a CD, unless you do a thumbprint (is that what it's called). Just be warned that anything you put them on, can mess up, so do a backup of somekind.
    I lost most of my edited, scanned pictures when our harddrive crashed, so just keeping them on your only harddrive is not a good idea.
    I have a feeling that it may be expensive to do what you want her to do, but I really don't know.
    Can she go to to WalMart and get copies of them. Maybe doing a few at a time so it doesn't take so long? I'm not sure of the quality, but once you get the pictures, you can do whatever you want to do.

    I've been scanning old photos little by little as well, to store on my computer. I have a Mac with iPhoto and it works great. Sometimes I scan the individual photos, sometimes I scan the whole page in the photo album so that I can go back and crop and edit each pic on the page when I have more time.

    My project for summer is to scan my wedding photos.

    And along the same lines, I'm going to sign up with www.carbonite.com just in case my computer ever gets stolen (Macs usually don't crash).

    You might checkout Kinko's. I've have not made a video but they helped me last year with a cool project the High School did to produce a poster to represent your child's high school years. I just went online and it says they have a service to put pictures of CDs or DVDs.

    I am sure size impacts cost. But my project ended up being inexpensive.

    I'm thinking maybe Walgreen's has this service available.....might check anyway! Plus if they do, they're always putting out good coupons for stuff in their flyer.
