Simply The Best Way To Preserve Your Past
The most important thing you can do for your family, in three easy steps.
How it Works
Your scanned pictures are provided back to you on a convenient thumb drive, provided online through Google Drive, or on professionally authored CDs. You choose which way you’d like to receive your picture scans upon checkout. Digital files are delivered as JPEGs that you can store, edit and share. Please note that our CDs combine as many digitized pictures as possible onto a disc.
Yes! We always send back your originals along with delivery of your newly scanned pictures.
We use a variety of scanners and equipment for each order, to ensure the highest quality conversion for your photos, slides, and negatives. Some photos tend to be more finicky than others and may require multiple pieces of equipment. For these reasons, and because we want to make our processes as efficient as possible, we cannot guarantee that our team will be able to keep your photos in a specific/chronological order. Our priority is to make sure your memories are transferred at the highest possible quality. The good news is that whether you opt for a thumb drive, digital download or CDs, you’ll receive JPEG files of your photos. They’re perfect for downloading to your computer, where you can reorganize and edit to your liking, using any photo storage program (like Google Photos, iPhoto, etc.).
While we offer minimal dust removal, we do not offer extensive cleaning of each of your images. We recommend cleaning them before you send your order to us. Restoring old or damaged photos is not something we do at this time. However, once your photo files are downloaded to your computer, you can easily drag and drop to reorganize, create folders, and rename the individual images however you'd like! You can also easily load them into the image editor of your choice and retouch and edit to your liking.

Old Picture Restoration
Your Throwback Thursdays #TBT are about to get a lifetime supply of awesome.
You’ve got the photographic treasures, they’re just buried in the dark and doing nobody any good. Dig up those prints, slides and negatives lying around in picture coffins. We’re going to bring your images to digital files with our high-res photo scanning service, so you can start spreading the wealth and getting major accolades from family and friends.
No, really. Drag them out here. Use the living room floor if necessary. We can wait. The clunky quilted scrapbooks, the photo albums with rusted rings, the plastic pages pulling apart. The bottom drawers and back closet boxes. The folders, the envelopes, the shoeboxes. The framed collections that once hung on your wall but which have cracked or are gathering dust behind a filing cabinet. You had no idea how many places your old photos were stored. We’ve all done it. Our parents started the tradition, but as photo technology got better and more affordable, the physical mass of photographic memories grew to outweigh the traditional storage systems. You were smart enough to hang on to your photos, and now is the time to prove why, before any more of them fade, tear, stick together, suffer water damage or bent corners, or disappear into the abyss entirely. Don’t tread water in a sea of unseen, unshared photos any longer.
The Affordable Technology Ambulance has arrived to preserve and safely store your old photos forever in a fraction of the space you are cluttering up now. Stop wondering where or how to scan old photos to digital. It’s all happening right here.
Every photograph you send by way of our pre-paid round-trip Legacybox will be hand-checked as it is scanned and digitized in our facility by pro technicians who convert and scan photos every day. Our scanning and transfer service is fast, easy, and we’ll keep in touch throughout the entire process. We’ll turn that photo mound into a collection you can store at your desk and on your desktop. Imagine easily posting any picture in your archive or to the Cloud, friends, Facebook, Instagram, web pages, etc. forever. The beauty of our picture scanning service is that your physical photographs can be converted to high resolution, and never ever get lost, or forgotten again. Don’t worry, we’ll give you all your old photos back when we are finished. We’d like to put them all inside a two-story tall quilted scrapbook that will arrive by helicopter, but hey, where would you keep it?
