help finding a site that does old photos to digital

Folks,

I need your help. I remember reading about a site that does something like 1000 old photos into digital for something like $70. I read about it Money or Time magazine. Any know which site this was/is? I have many old photos that are in need to be digitized.

I think it's called a scanner.

I don't know. If the photos are valuable enough to you that you want to digitize them, I'm not sure that you want to put them all into a package and mail them off. There are probably photo shops in your city that can do the same job.

Yeah. Find some high school kid with a scanner and give him $20.

I have a regular scanner. It's just too time consuming for me to sit and do it one at a time. Some of the pictures that I have are rather large in size and are old, dating back to the 1920s. Editing them would also take quite a while. Thanks for the site, it seems proper.

Another option: http://scancafe.com

They did good work for me and my father, as well.
