Some of the most precious moments in your life are hidden away. They’re in boxes in your closet, tucked into your desk drawer, or sitting in forgotten photo frames on shelves. You might be feeling like it's time to bring them back out into the light.
Gone are the old sticky page photo albums - now you can start scanning. Our sponsor Epson FastFoto FF-640 is the world's fastest photo scanner. It can scan a photo per second at 300 dpi. So now there's really no excuse to not get it done! Once you have all your photos online, there are so many things you can create with them.
Here are five fun things to do with your digital photos:
1) Make personalized gifts
You can add a personal touch to gift giving when you use your digital photos on mugs, pillows, coasters, magnets, and even phone cases. Don’t forget the possibilities for wearable creations. Make t-shirts for your next family reunion or put your family pet on a hat. For special images, you want to treasure, have them printed on canvas for display on the wall.
2) Share your photos online
Everybody loves to see a captivating blast from the past. Custom software from scanners like the Epson FastFoto FF-640 let you scan your pics and share them on Facebook or upload them directly to Dropbox or Google Drive. It even lets you boost faded pictures. Let your family and friends return to those special moments right along with you. It’s perfect for #ThrowbackThursday posts on Facebook.
3) Build a slideshow of family memories
Relive that Caribbean vacation. Explore the timeline of your family history. Watch your kids grow up all over again. You can organize your photos into slideshows and share them online, create fun videos, or show them on a television or computer at family functions. Think about arranging your photos around a theme, whether it’s a trip to the Grand Canyon or a college graduation.
4) Put your photos in a digital frame
It’s time to bring your photo display game into the modern age. With a digital photo frame, you can change out images to match your moods or to celebrate special times of the year. Cue up your wedding photos for your anniversary, celebrate your kids’ birthdays with pictures of past parties, or revisit holiday gatherings. You can also use a digital frame to show off the family slideshow you made.
5) Create a calendar for family and friends
The annual family holiday card is a tradition that everyone enjoys, but you can step up the celebration by also creating a calendar full of fun images. For family, you could use historic photos showing off your heritage. For friends, you could compile pictures of the good times you’ve spent together. You will all be reminded of love and warmth every time you flip the calendar over to a new month.
