Almost 20 years ago I promised to get the family photos scanned. Over the years I purchased three or four scanners; but, none of them were very easy to use. After 12 years, I got them scanned @ Scan My Photos.
The deal they offered in 2006 was $89 per box, three boxes for the price of two. Each box held about 1800 photos. Shipping both ways was included, including returning the original photos. Each box came with a DVD and a printed index sheet.
And it took a week!
Prices have gone up, of course; but, they still seem fair, especially considering the outcome. Negatives and Slides are more expensive. Check them out. I highly recommend them.
