question that has nothing to do with the archos

Post by piranhaleg »

Sorry to ask this here, but I dont know where to look. Does anybody know a place that will take old photos and convert them to jpeg. I know everybody like, cvs, walgreens, will take jpeg from a memory card and make photos prints, but i need to get a bunch of old photos on my computer. Anybody know?????

Google "Scanning services". There are hundreds of professional services that scan, color correct, repair, etc all photos and slides.

Surely it's better and cheaper to buy a photo/negative scanner.
There are so many good scanners on the market, you can enhance, manipulate and enhance your photo's.
You can scan your photo's and view the results as many times as you like before you decide to print them off.

Only a suggestion.

If you're really desperate you can take a digital photograph of the picture.

But, yea there are many flatbed scanners to choose from. Shouldn't be a problem.

They can come really cheap -- have a look at the Canon CanoScan LiDE 25.

If you have hundreds to scan, and it's a one-off job, then it's almost certainly going to be better for your sanity and your pocket to send them away to a specialist scanning outfit. Sure you can buy cheap scanners, and the quality can be quite good; but cheap scanners tend to be sloooooow... and if you've got hundred, you'll go mental with the boredom. There are UK companies that will scan 200 for about £20, and the price per photo goes down with bigger jobs.
