Photo albums still line shelves in some living rooms and the feeling of going from page to page gives viewers a feeling of excitement when, not knowing what comes next, they find a photo from 1975 when they were just a baby – or just had had a baby.
On the other hand, those albums do require maintenance – cleaning and implementation of other anti-mold techniquest – and take up lots of space. Digitally scanning all the photos can take ages but you’ll be able to share the photos with all friends and family with an email address.
So what do you do in this case?
Do you sacrifice a few weekends in exchange for more space and less dust? Sure, it’ll take some time to get done – but it’ll be time well spent in exchange for preserving these memories on a digital medium.
Do you just leave it alone? You’ve got far more important things to do than to spend time scanning photos that are already well-preserved and not doing any harm as-is.
