Trusted Photo scanning service
With our photo scanning service, all photos are handled by white-gloved technicians. All photos are cleaned and dusted before scanning. All photos are scanned directly to a computer and optimized by trained, experienced technicians with backgrounds in fine art and photography. All photos are returned properly organized via DVD, USB or private website after your photo scanning project is complete, and our prices are incredibly competitive. If that all sounds like exactly what you’re looking for, we are the best choice for your photo scanning project!
Photos come in all shapes and sizes and our standard photo scanning applies to all of your photos that range from wallet size up to 8″ x 10″. If you have framed photos, photo albums, delicate vintage photos, oversized photos and even artwork, we have expert processes in place to take care of these items too! Most of your photos are probably in color, which has been widely available for the average photographer since the 1960s, but you may have noticed the color starting to fade. This is very common and one of the reasons we optimize every photo we scan. We also offer unique photo organizing services. Your scans not only come back in their original order, but we can make them easy to search by date, topic and more.
When you’re storing your photos, or preparing to digitize, it’s best to put them into archival, acid-free photo boxes or folders and avoid bending them when handling.

about photo scanning
Common questions about transferring photos to digital
How secure are my photos?
All of our photo orders go through an extensive inventory system. Your consultant will count your photos and videos and review your estimate with you. All of our client materials are sealed in weather-proof bins and labeled with your last name, unique order number and what’s inside. All of our photo technicians wear white gloves and only work on one order at at time. Your project is tracked from start to finish and you can call for an update at any time to find out about your project.
How many photo scans fit on a DVD?
A lot! A data DVD can hold thousands of scanned images, but if you have more photographs than fit on a DVD, we’ll upgrade you to whatever size USB you might need (at no cost), or make you a second DVD (at no cost). Personally, we recommend the USB for larger projects anyways.
My photos are a mess, what do I do?
You’re not alone. Whether you work with us by mail, in our stores or in your home, large projects are assigned a certified photo organizer. We can help with organizing by category, paring down collections, and applying advanced digital organization and foldering. Our services are completely unique in this area, and can help make your photo scanning project more cost effective AND easier for family to digitally enjoy.

“This is a fantastic service. I first used EverPresent to scan about 1,500 of my own photos I had stored in a closet. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results– the photo quality was great and the organization/ facial recognition software has allowed me to use and enjoy the photos much more. Based on my this experience, I had EverPresent digitize my family’s entire photo archive– more than 4,000 pictures. Further, I found the EverPresent staff to be friendly, helpful and responsive.”
