Photo & Slide Scanning
You give people their past back and bring back all the wonderful memories
” Hello, I just picked up my Everpresent USB and I’m watching it now. I wanted to thank you so much for doing this for me and my family. I need you to know that what you do is more than just transfer videos. You give people their past back and bring back all the wonderful memories that we sometimes forget about. I cannot be more appreciative of what you and your team has done. This is and will be the greatest gift I have ever received. Thank you isn’t enough. ”
Wonderful, timely service. AAA+ work. Prices were amazing.
“Wonderful timely service. AAA+ work. Prices was amazing. This company took large 25 X 32 and five 50 year old 11 X 14 fraternity photos and restored them digitally so that they looked like new. The print quality perfect and was able to take out all the imperfections. Alex Judge responded to me with excellent communication. Outstanding company highly recommended.

Best decision to outsource a task that we’ve ever made…
I had such a terrific experience using EverPresent. I gathered all my parents photos and slides, and EverPresent thoughtfully and carefully digitized and organized all images faster and more logically than anyone in my family could have hoped to do individually. This was the best decision to outsource a task we’ve ever made.”
I had EverPresent digitize my family’s entire photo archive– more than 4,000 pictures…
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.
Converted Dad’s slides to digital and laughing over the crazy clothes…
To start a project to convert my dad’s slides to digital, I brought over a first set of 250. Pleasant, helpful, professional service. The day before my requested pickup date, they called and said they were ready! The best part was giving my dad the usb stick and then the whole family watched a digital slide show with 3 generations laughing over the crazy clothes and enjoying the special occasion photos and all the memories. It is very important to share these family memories and histories. These Ektachrome and Kodachrome slides had super clarity and color… thanks to Everpresent’s careful cleaning, very few dust specks.
I just got the next set of slides out of the closet to have converted at EverPresent! My dad is looking forward to seeing and sharing those from his deployment during the Korean War in around 1954.
Old negatives scanned to digital, local and on-time…
We highly recommend EverPresent – these folks were responsive, thorough, and produced a beautiful product for us! Our project was the creation of digital images from 10 year old negatives (which were of a unique size) – we were advised in regards to what could be done and offered a meeting time. We are from the Boston area and were able to visit the main office where we dropped off our negatives and then returned a couple weeks later to retrieve a “memory stick” with our digital photos. The process was efficient from the start – we emailed our inquiry and then had a conversation via phone due to the unique size of the negatives, then our meeting for drop-off. For anyone in the Boston area, we would suggest you trust EverPresent with your photo needs – they do an excellent job! Thank you, EverPresent!
Photos scanned to DVD on premises, not overseas…
My brother in Florida discovered EverPresent when he was looking online for a business that saved photographs in digital format. I had a box of over 500 photos of our family history from the 1930’s to the 1990’s – none of which had ever been saved in albums. My brother came up from Florida (I live in Waltham) and, after sorting through the photos, took 100 of them to EverPresent. I called ahead to make an appointment, which was a good thing, as they were very busy. But we were seen immediately, and the whole process was very professional and quick. In 20 minutes our salesperson had written up a contract, and determined what we needed and the cost (which was VERY reasonable). Within two weeks we had our flash drives and our DVD of the photos, and all of our original photos back. EverPresent does all its work right on the premises, so your irreplaceable family photos are not sent overseas or out-of-state. Very nice work! I highly recommend them.
Painters works scanned and archived at high resolution…
Highly recommend EverPresent! I’m a painter so I brought some paintings here to see if they could scan and archive my work at high resolution. I met with Jane and she was so incredibly helpful and optimistic about helping me. She said they had never done a project like mine but would do everything they could to find a way to make it happen.
The scans the took came out absolutely beautiful! They went beyond my expectations and I couldn’t be happier.
Even if you’re not looking for the exact same service I would highly recommend Everpresent as a company. Very helpful, professional, and knowledgable staff.
Scanned and organized, rush job for family event…
I cannot speak highly enough of this place. I brought in over a hundred photos that I needed scanned last minute for a family event. They charged me a modest rush fee so I could get them back in 6 days instead of a couple weeks, and then they finished them a day earlier than originally scheduled out of their own kindness! They scanned everything and organized it exactly how it was brought in (according to photo album numbers) with absolutely no confusion. The scanned images themselves came out perfectly. Everyone in the office is super nice and very helpful. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get something digitized and will be definitely going there again myself in the near future.

Digitized over 500 photos…
The staff at EverPresent are very helpful, and the service is great. So far, they have digitized over 500 photos and I think the quality of their work is excellent.
I am in the process of selecting photos taken over a 10 to 15 year span, so I have a long way to go. The staff has professionally handled my project and takes the time to inform me of a variety of ways to share my digitized photos.
It’s an excellent company, with very competent staff.
Slides converted to digital and 20 DVDs given to friends…
My mother who was 95 and lived a full life passed away and sometimes in circumstances like this, you need some slides done quickly. I needed 300 slides that were taken about 40 years ago converted into digital slide format. The EverPresent staff were incredible in taking care of my immediate problem. In a short period of time they converted my old slides into digital format, cleaned them up, as some looked faded, they added music and beginning and ending slides. It was an amazing slide show and we gave 20 DVD’s to friends and family. I am thankful to the staff as they are knowledgeable, took care of my problem, they are local and close to Boston and did a very professional job for me.
Hands-on, organized and professional digitizing consultants…
A wonderful experience working with EverPresent and in particular Jane Simons on converting my movies and old photos to digital. The hands-on, organized and professional approach to handling a lifetime of memories that are now more secure and streamlined than they’ve ever been!!! Thank you Jane and EverPresent for making a daunting task look easy:))
Professional restoration of 3D stereo slides from my parents wedding…
If you want to work with a team of professionals that you can trust with your cherished heirlooms – this is the place to go!
My project was to convert 3D Stereo Slides of my parents wedding from 1953 into photos without destroying the slides. They were old, had scratches, required restoration AND needed to be turned around within 10 days.
The owners Eric and Jennifer are a pleasure to work with and met with me when I was available. Within a couple of days, the scans were emailed to me via Dropbox – it was that simple. Eric was emailing me late at night or very early a.m. keeping me informed every step of the way.
I had them back in plenty of time and the photos were wonderful – received a CD as well for the rest of the family.
I highly recommend them for their service, level of professionalism and knowledge. They care about preserving these memories and were truly interested in my project and knew the importance it held for our family.
Their office is easy to find, has parking and has a very comfortable environment to meet with them to discuss your needs.
My parents were thrilled to see their wedding photos in an album for the first time in 60 years!
I will happily recommend them to everyone!
Slides digitized for professional artists…
Amazing work!!! Artists who need slides digitized should bring them here.I had them scan 40 slides; the the clarity and resolution of the images was extraordinary. Also, great customer service and turn around time.
Even though I live several states away, it felt like I was working with a hometown shop. It is rare to find such personal service…
When I needed some old family slides converted to prints for a memorial service, EverPresent was able to accommodate a quick turn around. Hilary and the EverPresent team were very professional and even though I live several states away, it felt like I was working with a hometown shop. It is rare to find such personal service and I highly recommend EverPresent.
Photo restoration of old black and white photos…
We give our highest recommendation for EverPresent. They took thousands of our old family photos and videos and digitized them for us in an extremely short time, a project that was currently taking me years to do. In addition, they digitally restored many of the old black and white photos which were fading or had been damaged while being stored in old boxes in our attic for many years. The price was very reasonable given that our family photos are irreplaceable and they completed our project very quickly. In addition, they were excellent to work with as they were both very responsive and very accommodating regarding having our photos picked up and dropped off. Our highest recommendations.
1200 photos of my son’s life history transferred onto tiny USB drives…
Thanks to a lovely work by EverPresent, 1200 photo prints of my son’s life history (from our old, heavy and bulky photo albums) have been digitized on tiny USB drives and each of my family can carry a copy ! This, really, is the way to keep our memory fresh and handy, whenever and wherever ! I highly recommend EverPresent to any family. Ask their friendly and reliable service if you have old photos in your closet!!
Albums & Scrapbooks
80 years of history and scrapbooks digitized…
The Charity League of Paducah had over 80 years of history and scrapbooks that we put in the most capable hands at EverPresent. They did the most amazing job of scanning and archiving every page – even purchasing special equipment to handle the extra-large pages so we had the best quality files possible.
As the organization’s historian, I can’t recommend them enough!
Precious scrapbooks scanned to digital with higher end equipment than at home…
EverPresent did a great job scanning my scrapbooks so I could have digital files of all of my scrapbooks. Ever since we had a house fire 5 years ago that my scrapbooks miraculously survived, I have been thinking I should scan them in but I didn’t get around to it. EverPresent scanned them using much better technology than I have so the quality is excellent. I just printed out some of the files to see how a reproduction would look and it looks very good, both on photographic prints and in photo books I ordered online. Now I know that I can recreate a damaged book if necessary, and I can easily make copies of books in case, for example, my daughter wants to take her baby book with her someday when she has her own home and I still want a copy or in case both of my daughters each want a copy of a particular book. EverPresent was completely professional and handled my scrapbooks with great care. Highly recommend.
Photo conversion of old albums to digital brings peace of mind and dinner conversations…
We used EverPresent to digitize a bunch of wedding photos and some old albums. It ended up being about 5,000 pictures and also a bunch of video files. They did an excellent job with the quality and organization. Having the photos on a digital photo frame is a real treat as we never looked at the old pictures. Now the kids ask a bunch of questions which is a fun conversation piece at dinner. I also love the peace of mind knowing we won’t lose the photos or have them degrade in quality.
Service was great and the price seemed very reasonable.
P.S. We have since used them for two additional projects and referred family members there. So far everyone is happy.
I have used EverPresent five times now, each time as smooth as the first.
“Last summer I came across my two boxes of stored video tapes, spanning more than two decades of my family’s life from before kids to college graduations. I worried those memories might degrade in those boxes and be lost forever. Fortunately I found EverPresent Throughout the process, the staff at EverPresent was readily available whenever I called. Each person I spoke with was as pleasant to deal with as the next. They promised to be able to transcribe our recordings from three different (obsolete) video formats to modern digital format. I received another courtesy call when my project was finished and on its way to the drop off in Connecticut. The final result was excellent…what a trip down memory lane! I have used EverPresent five times now, each time as smooth as the first. I would heartily recommend EverPresent to anyone interested in preserving their important memories for posterity.”
They make it convenient with local drop off and pick up to save the customers time.
“I have used EverPresent to convert my old VHS video tapes to DVD. The customer experience was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful and the product was perfect. They make it convenient with local drop off and pick up to save the customers time. I would certainly recommend EverPresent to friends and family.”
Family videos organized, catalogued, digitized…
I had over 100 old family videos digitized for my husband’s birthday and the result was amazing! Jane (who covers the Sudbury area) handled the project as if it was her own. She picked up, hand delivered, cataloged, and scrutinized every detail. The project took about 6 months and she kept me on schedule, always checking and re-checking even the smallest detail. The pricing was very reasonable and the quality excellent. I highly recommend EverPresent, and if you are lucky enough to get Jane as your rep, your experience will be 5 star! I’ve already started collecting old photos for my next project!
Flash drives with our videos and binder to organize old videos contents…
EverPresent made it so easy to process our videos, and the results are stunning. Not only did we receive flash drives with our videos included, but we received a binder with key frames printed out so that we can readily identify what is on videos over 20 years old. Great value for the money.
Movies and videos, different formats, VHS, 8mm converted to preserve memories…
We’d accumulated a large number of family movies and videos over the years – all in different formats and mostly not labeled or mislabeled. We were about to throw them out, but EverPresent ‘saved the day’. Their staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and clearly were about preserving memories, not just ‘copying stuff’. We’ve had a great time looking at our boys early years, and some unexpected footage of my wife’s father teaching a class. Be prepared to cry (with happiness)!
Jamaica Plain, MA
We had an excellent time partly in thanks to EverPresent.
When I discovered that my father’s first cousin was having a 100th birthday party in December 2016, I took an old 16mm movie to EverPresent to be digitized. I got an excellent copy on a thumbdrive and copied it to another thumbdriver to take with me to Maryland. At the party I was able to leave among other items a digitized movie that included the birthday lady at the age of 10. The movie also included the rest of her family, including her grandparents, and my father’s family. We had an excellent time partly in thanks to EverPresent.
On behalf of my family, we would like to extend our sincerest appreciation for the hard work and effort your company did in bringing back my dad’s old films.
My daughter just arrived in Manila for the Christmas break and brought with her the converted files. On behalf of my family, we would like to extend our sincerest appreciation for the hard work and effort your company did in bringing back my dad’s old films. It’s been quite some time since we have seen these moments in our lives since our original film projector could no longer work. The only regret is that my father, who passed away early this year, will not be able to see it. Nevertheless, seeing him in the films again will keep his memory alive to me, my mother, my siblings and the grandchildren.
It was bittersweet seeing loved ones who are no longer with us…
After dinner, I showed old 8 mm home movies from the ‘50s and ‘60s (plus some videos from the ‘80s) that I recently had Everpresent convert to a flash drive. My family LOVED watching them! It was bittersweet seeing loved ones who are no longer with us (including my mom), but at the same time, it was comforting, too. And my kids and my nephews liked seeing older family members in their younger years (not to mention the old cars, radios, phones, etc. that appeared in the background of the old movies).
3 Super 8mm films from college converted to new media…
I had such a wonderful experience with the staff and level of service at Everpresent!
There were 3 Super 8mm films I made in college that were just sitting in my closet for over 8 years. I thought they were going to slowly deteriorate until they were no longer watchable. I researched some online companies that required you to send your film to them in order to get it converted to digital. These places were online services only and always in another state. I didn’t feel comfortable shipping out the sole copies of my film to some place I had not and would not, ever step foot into. Not to mention, they were all rather costly.
When I found out about Everpresent (a local company) I was ecstatic, but also had a lot of questions. I immediately reached out via email to Jody, a member of the staff, who was both incredibly informative and timely with her responses. After giving me a rough idea of cost and what services were available, I made my way into the store to sit down and go over the details face to face (on a side note, it is incredibly comforting to have a place where can actually walk into and physically sit down with someone). I sat with Sydney who once again went over the services they offered and what the approximate cost would be. She was incredibly helpful and was able to answer any additional questions I had.
My films were all converted to digital locally which is another big plus. A lot of these other online companies I researched would’ve had to send your film out to another location in order to get it converted, as it is, what I would assume, a somewhat rare request. That means, I send it out to one place, they send it out to another place, then it comes back to them, then it gets sent back to me. That is not only time consuming, but the chances that something bad could happen to the original copies of the film increases drastically.
When my film arrived back after only 2 – 3 weeks, I returned to EverPresent and met with Jody. She gave me the digital conversions and asked if I would like to review them all before I left, just to make sure they turned out okay (this is a huge plus in my book!). The digital conversions looked more beautiful and perfect than I had remembered!
Overall, it was a truly great experience and I highly recommend that anyone interested in converting old media to new media check out EverPresent!
50 year old 8mm film of bar mitzvah digitized with amazing results and Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides came out stunning when digitized…
Amazing results! I was very impressed with the quality of of my digitized 8mm bar mitzvah film. I had low expectations that the this almost 50 year old film would come out well. Previewing the film on a hand cranked projector that allowed me to to freeze frames and go at slow speed was cool but no way prepared me for the fabulous end results. The staff took great care to assure me that my movie and slides would be handled with the utmost care and everything was well organized; labeled and presented in a very professional manner. The Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides came out stunning when digitized. I can’t wait to share this movie at Rosh Hashsana time with family members! I strongly recommend EverPresent for preserving digitally the many cherished moments documented in our lives!
Super 8 movies of my family’s early days in Japan transferred to cd…
Thanks so much to Jane Simons and EverPresent for making my Father’s Day so great this year. They catalogued, stored and reproduced on simple CD format and on a flash drive a wide array of media, from Super 8 movies of my family’s early days in Japan to all sizes of video tape. Jane was instrumental in making house calls to go over the various pieces and took a personal interest every step of the way. It was obviously as fun for her as it was for us to preserve these family memories in such an easy format. In the few weeks we have had the CDs we have shared them with several other family members. The best part is the notebook of thumbnail photos that help us identify the exact CD and frame to short cut the process of finding the perfect few minutes to watch with relatives and friends. Thanks to Jane and Everpresent. We can not recommend them more!
I would have loved to have organized archiving it myself, with a fast-paced, deadline-driven work life I had neither time nor energy…
I ‘inherited’ my parent’s lifetime collection of photographs, slides, baby books, journals, scrapbooks, etc. to manage for my family and while I would have loved to have organized archiving it myself, with a fast-paced, deadline-driven work life I had neither time nor energy. I tested the waters of digitizing services by sending a small batch to one large “scanning” company found on the internet and while that worked – I got back a CD with scanned material – it was impersonal and I was uncertain about shipping off the priceless items and so continued searching. I found EVERPRESENT, liked what I read, gave them a call, and sent a batch and am now nearly done (6 or so batches later). We have discussions about organization as needed once they receive a shipment and I email my questions or other special requirements or changes (I have learned to just have them scan the backs of photographs with identifying information rather than go back and try it myself). Albums can be scanned as they are. I will provide my family with thumb drives with all copies for Christmas. Without EVERPRESENT the collection would still be sitting in a box in my house, causing guilt. I also starting sending my personal photographs and, funny enough, have just “inherited” my Uncle’s collection of slides and films of my family in our young years and will send that by year’s end! It’s a huge relief to have such excellent service. There is just no need in today’s world to have boxes in the attic full of sole copies of family history. It is more efficient to have EVERPRESENT do a professional job archiving it. Peace of mind, absence of guilt, pleasure in sharing a slide show from a thumb drive on large screen! No boxes to store, no crumbling albums. I give them my highest recommendation.”
A gift for my parents will really be for all of their kids/grandkids as we finally have digitized copies of every family photo…
I had such a terrific experience using EverPresent. They pulled off the most amazing holiday gift. I gathered all my parents photos and slides, and EverPresent thoughtfully and carefully digitized and organized all images faster and more logically than anyone in my family could have hoped to do individually. This was the best decision to outsource a task we’ve ever made. I think the cost was very fair considering how much care they put into handling and digitizing irreplaceable family photos. It was something I was scared to do for years – to hand someone all of our images at one time. But their communication was terrific throughout the process and made the decision comfortable. This was a gift for my parents, but will really be for all of their kids/grandkids as we finally have digitized copies of every family photo & slide saved on multiple USB drives for safe keeping. It was a great investment using a trusted company.
Custom Design Projects
They took the ideas I had in my head and created an album that my wife and our family will treasure for many years.
I came to Everpresent after failing on a few attempts at the do-it-yourself approach. It seemed simple enough, but it is much harder than it seems. They took the ideas I had in my head and created an album that my wife and our family will treasure for many years. The people there are great to work with and the level of quality was superb! Could not be happier with our choice to use them for this project and I am sure we will be going back in the future.
We are grateful for your help and know that the video will have a long life of its own!
Just a note to tell you that the video was a huge success! My mother watched intently, and our relatives all commented on how much they enjoyed it. Not only did everyone comment that it was very well put together, but told us that it was “touching,” “a tear-jerker,” and a “lovely tribute” to my mother. Many thanks to you and the staff at EverPresent for your dedication to our project. We are grateful for your help and know that the video will have a long life of its own!
About this project: 25 minute long slideshow for her mother’s 90th birthday, capturing nearly 100 years of history, from the time the family immigrated to Brooklyn before the mother was born, up to today. It had captions for every.single.slide, and about 230 photos. We used music from each time period, and incorporated videos of each family member wishing her a happy birthday, and then she herself did a video thanking everyone for wishing her a happy birthday.
Best part – meeting one-on-one with professional consultant to review first draft…
The best part was going in for the editing after I had seen the first draft and being met with responsive, can-do, positive feedback. This is NOT always the case after someone puts in a lot of time at the first go-around, which Anne clearly had. Hands down, a terrific experience. Worth every cent!

A “That 70’s Show” flashback video rocks the house…
I gave Jane and her team at EverPresent only a few weeks to create a ‘That 70’s Show’ flashback video staring my family. We had a family reunion on Cape Cod in early August and the 14 minute production was the highlight of the entire week. Jane combined video clips with photo’s and some ‘one hit wonders’ music from the 70’s to create a video that rocked the house. We laughed all week long. We made watching the video a nightly event after our meals. It was clear that Jane invested a lot of time figuring out how to match the music with the visual content to reflect our family dymanic. My expectations were exceeded in a big way. The EverPresent team are Pro’s at getting things done and making it look easy in the process. I gave a 5 star rating only because there are no more to give. If there were more I’d give more.
A video for an 80th birthday…
EverPresent and particularly Claire Odecki were of enormous help to me. For my husband’s
80th birthday I wanted to present a video. Sensitive to my wish to be as involved as possible, Claire was patient, encouraging, and professional. A skilled artist, she is talented and competent.
Without reservation and with enormous enthusiasm, I recommend EverPresent. Great product, delightful process. Am eager to repeat the experience. EverPresent is a real find.
Customized slideshow of family pictures…
I used EverPresent to create a customized slideshow of our family’s pictures over the course of the year – a gift that I gave to parents and grandparents for Christmas. I was thrilled with the result, they were able to set the pictures to music and it has become a fun keepsake for us. The grandparents were excited to have a “movie” of all the kids’ milestones in 2012.
The team at EverPresent was wonderful to work with, and very proactive in making recommendations to produce the best results. I was able to give them a vague vision of what I had in mind, and they knew exactly how to pull it together. I plan on working with them to make another slideshow for Christmas this year!
We entrusted this very special project [photo book] to Everpresent and could not be more thrilled with the result.
“To help celebrate our 50th anniversary, we wanted to create a picture book that would span this entire period – i.e., from our wedding and early days through children and grandchildren. We entrusted this very special project to Everpresent and could not be more thrilled with the result. It involved hundreds of pictures, many very old (pre-digital age) that required digital enhancing to make them of suitable quality for the album. With only our initial guidance on the organization of the book, Everpresent’s very talented book designer, Susan Weiss, took over and created a beautiful book. We, our children and grandchildren love it and it will be enjoyed as a documentation of our family’s history for generations.”.
