FREE Educational Event and Scan-A-Thon at the East Mountain Library in Tijeras
Saturday, September 30th, from 1 – 430 pm.
September is International Save Your Photos Month. Fancy’s Photo Solutions, a member of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers, is hosting a free presentation and Scan-a-Thon on September 30th at the East Mountain Library in Tijeras. Drop in anytime between 1:30 and 3:30 pm for scanning. Bring up to 50 loose photos and/or documents (a stack of photos that is about one-half inch high), from 3×5 up to 8×10, for free, high-quality professional scanning. We will return your photos to you at the event and within two weeks you will receive a link to download their digital counterparts (cropped and color corrected, as needed).
This is a great way to see how digitizing your family archives can be easy and fun. Scanning some of your photos may be the first step in preserving them. Fancy will answer your individual questions to help you enjoy your photos and have them in your life again. In addition a short, educational presentation with Q&A will be given twice during the event: at 1 pm and 3:30 pm (it’s the same presentation – attend the one that’s most convenient for you).
Preregister for the event (it’s FREE) and when you attend you will be entered to win one of three valuable prizes to help you Save Your Photos! Register at the bottom of the page.
Save Your Photos is on Social Media
If you are on Facebook, you can join the Facebook Event here. This is where updates will be posted and questions and answers can take place before the event.
There is only one thing we need to do when it comes to photo management. We just need to start. It is as simple as gathering all your photos in one place so you can see what you have. This is especially important if you have legacy photos from previous generations. The longer you wait, the more you risk losing your personal story. Fancy is here to help people get those photos back into their lives again, and to preserve them for the future.
