Recently I helped a friend deal with a pile of old photo's in frames. She was stressed about getting rid of them but didn't have room to store them either. I simply suggested removing the pictures, donating the frames, and then scanning the pictures. She had never even thought of removing the pictures! She'd seen them as a "package deal". It's amazing how a little change in perspective can help with something as simple as photo's.
I love my little red photo scanner by Pandigital! You simply run photo's through and they're saved on an XD card. I plug that card into my computer and all my photo's are transferred - and it's so much fun! I just spent a day scanning all my parents boxes of photo's and now we can actually enjoy them.
OK, you can't get it in red anymore, but here's a picture of mine and a link to the new white one - Happy Photo Scanning!
