PRLog - April 6, 2012 - LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Why digitise your photos, negatives and slides?
Photo Fix Switzerland
At some time in our lives the majority of us browse through old photo albums to reminisce on days gone by, to remember when the kids were young or to remember important people who may not be with use any more.
Unfortunately all photos, slides and negatives degrade over time. Colour photos begin to fade from the day that they were printed. Even those you have carefully stored in albums or glassed in display frames will eventually fade away to blank sheets of paper. Slides and negatives are not immune. They undergo dramatic colour shifts and fading even in the absence of light as the film emulsion degrades over time. Kodachrome slides are especially vulnerable to this degredation. The image scanners can't stop the physical degredation process of your slides, prints and negatives but can preserve those images for you. Permanently.
What about the effects of dust, handling and humidity ? All of these environmental factors hasten the degredation. We have all seen old photos and slides that have passed the point of no return. In fact even the slightest amount of dust or environmental contamination scar the sensitive emulsion on slides, negatives and prints. Every time a storage box is moved, a slide is handled, a negative is held up to the light it is further damaged by these factors. Digital scanning is the only 100% sure way to preserve your images and keep them in pristine condition.
Converting your medias to digital images allows these photos to be brought back to life and in many cases to make the photos look like new.
Main advantages of Digitising
- Further deterioration of the image is arrested.
- Storage is vastly simplified - no more boxes of old photos or slides need to be managed!
- Once converted, images can be easily copied and distributed to friends and family.
- Digital images can be easily attached to emails or uploaded to social networking sites such as facebook, or to family tree sites to add colour to family histories.
- The images are preserved for future generations - a scanned image can last a thousand years, or longer !
In order to convert 35mm slides and negative film specialised equipment is required. This cannot be done using a conventional scanner as projected light is required.
Don't lose your precious family memories, convert them to digital !
