Never Lose Your Photos or Memories with YesVideo #YesMemory

Florida Wedding 2012

Over the past year, I’ve taken literally thousands of pictures!  I’ve taken pictures of our family, of our trips, of products I love, of nature….the list goes on and on.  I take those pictures so I can look back on and immediately place myself through memories in those pictures – remembering the way I felt, what I saw, even the scents that were in the air.  Photos capture and preserve the memories of those moments we have and want to cherish in our lives!

I remember being a kid and having the old school scrapbook albums – you know the ones that had a sort of adhesive page cover that would hold the pictures in place on the page.  There was an album that I hadn’t looked through in a long time and when I opened it one night,  I found my pictures were faded and basically ruined.  The majority of photos in that album were thrown in the trash, with no hope of being saved.  After going through that experience, I know that I want to keep my pictures safe and hand them down through the generations in our family.  This is where YesVideo comes into play.

Scanning Back in the Day

I remember how excited I was to get a scanner and start scanning in some of my photos from home to post on Myspace (yes it was that long ago).  It did the job, but it took FOREVER!!!  Separating the pictures, opening the scanner, placing one picture on the scanner, pressing the button, waiting for the little light to scan across the glass, and then for the picture to come up on the computer.  It’s no wonder that I didn’t scan in all that many pictures!

Home scanning not only takes a long time, but the quality of the picture is often diminished.  A lot of the pictures had grainy pixels and the overall look was not one I was really pleased with.  I wanted high quality scans and it just wasn’t happening with the scanner.  Nowadays, there are higher quality scanners, but it is still a timely process and you’re not getting the same quality photos you would get with the YesVideo service.
