Digitizing Family Photo Albums

This is a small beach and a dead tree.

A few hours ago I thought of working on a project that would take some time to do. That project is Digitizing all of my family photo albums that my family has built up over the years. I figured that this would be a way to keep these photos that were taken over time. After scanning each photo, I thought of doing touch up to any photos that would need a touch up.

I know that it would take time to scan each photo into my computer and time to do any touch up to any number of photos. I would assume that doing this would, in a way, keep all the photographs for a long time to come. By doing this I would need a lot of storage space on my computer.

Though it would be sometime before I would actually sit down and do this, since the photo albums are in storage. Once I get everything that I need out of storage and set up a workhorse of a computer then I would start digitizing the photographs.

I doubt that I’ll scan the 8 1/2″ by 11″ pictures, I would defiantly scan the 3″ by 5″ photos into the computer and archive them onto a DVD disk. I, also, thought about putting the photographs onto a gallery style site of some kind some where and have it password protected, so that only a few people can look at the photos. Though, I doubt that I’ll be doing that last thing that I said, giving how many photographs that there are in the albums.

I even thought about turning this into a business of some kind, I may or may not though. A long story for another time.

I may add to this post or I may add a part 2 post at some point. Contact me or leave a comment below if you like to share thoughts about this. It would be a day or two before responding to any comments on posts or through the contact form.
