Protect Your Photos Before a Disaster Strikes
Saturday, September 29th, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm
East Mountain Library in Tijeras – Meeting Room
September is Save Your Photos Month, and September 29th is Save Your Photos Day. Now that the spring and summer storm seasons are nearing an end, most people are NOT thinking about planning for a disaster. However, it is a great time for you to consider how you can protect one of your most treasured assets, your photos and photo albums.
You can rebuild a house, but you can’t recapture lost memories. Imagine leaving your home and never returning to see it in the same condition again. It doesn’t take much for Mother Nature’s wrath to ruin everything we’ve worked for all our lives. If you ask anyone who has lost their home to a disaster if they could roll the clock back, would they have taken steps to protect and preserve their sentimental photos and images of their home, most would say yes. Now is the time for you to also say that yes. Be prepared and digitally preserve your precious photos before they are lost to accident or natural disaster.
Save Your Photos Month is an International event for those who appreciate that every life is a story worth preserving and sharing.
Come on Down and Get Started!
There is only one thing we need to do when it comes to photo management. We just need to start. 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. At this FREE event she will scan up to 50 photos and/or documents (think Birth Certificates and genealogical documents) for you at 600 dpi . Drop in anytime between 1 pm and 4 pm to get your free scanning done.
Your items will be scanned, optimized, and uploaded to a SECURE digital site (no cost to download or keep them there as backup) and you will be sent the link by email within one week. Or you can bring a thumb drive or external hard drive to the event. Or both! The digital archive will serve as a backup in case the drive fails or is lost.
