IRVINE, Calif.–“Pictures are everything, we make yours last a lifetime and more,” is what ScanMyPhotos.com has championed as a pioneer in super-fast and affordable photo scanning and digital imaging. This slogan is the foundation for the parent company’s (30 Minute Photos Etc.) 19-years of leadership in the photo imaging industry.
Protecting generations of analog and today’s digital pictures will be the central theme of Mitch Goldstone’s discussion at the Photo Imaging News and INTERNATIONAL CONTACT 2nd International Business Forum Cologne event. “Memories Are More…” will occur on October 21 and 22, 2009 at the Koelnmesse Congress Center North in Cologne, Germany
Session Overview: Goldstone, president and CEO of U.S.-based ScanMyPhotos.com will share insights for reinventing the photo imaging business by using KODAK Picture Kiosks, KODAK Rapid Print Scanners and KODAK APEX (Adaptive Picture Exchange) as the foundation for having something new to share with consumers. According to Goldstone, “today’s modern tool for promoting these innovations is Twitter and other social networking strategies. Twitter is transformative. As digital was to film, Twitter is to traditional yellow page display phone books. It is revolutionary, free, and the preferred new instrument for listening to and engaging your prospective customers with a helpful and authentic dialogue.”
Goldstone will share proven tips about how his company gained international recognition and customers by implementing social network marketing. You will take away invaluable lessons that you can immediately implement to enhance your sales, reputation and buzz-marketing for your memory business.

IRVINE, Calif.–(Businesswire)–Two ways to get Oprah Winfrey’s attention and be recognized as one of her “Favorite Things.”
1) Write a press release;
2) Have an emotional story that shares an innovative and affordable way to digitally preserve generations of photo snapshots
During a recent European trip, destiny greeted Mitch Goldstone and Carl Berman as they dined on the Greek Island of Mykonos. At the next table was Bernard LaChance, a charismatic Canadian singer who shared his story about creativity attracting the interest of talk show superstar Oprah Winfrey.
See links to Mr. LaChance’s YouTube story:
As an influential icon, Oprah Winfrey inspires millions. Her recent segment on LaChance was the type of emotional story of remarkable people with inventive talents that make people watch and cheer. The ScanMyPhotos.com story is magical in a different way. It inspires other businesses not to give up during challenging economic cycles and threatening technology transformations. “By reaching out to Oprah and hopefully becoming part of her “Favorite Things,” our story can rekindle entrepreneurial passion by others to also reinvent and recalibrate how they do business,” said Goldstone, President & CEO, ScanMyPhotos.com.
As the photo imaging industry shifted from film to digital, many businesses closed – a lifetime of dreams dissolved. Rather than giving up, Goldstone and Berman, founders of a retail photo center based in Southern California, persevered. They rode the wave of change and expanded their retail photo center into an international E-commerce company that digitally preserves and shares tens of millions of photo memories. For just $49.95, they digitally scan up to 1,000 photos; the prepaid fill-the-box service holds about 2,000 photos and includes all shipping with same day return for just $124.95.
Just as LaChance captured Oprah’s attention, ScanMyPhotos.com is hoping for an encore to also share its story on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” By embracing change and reinventing every aspect of entrepreneurship,
ScanMyPhotos.com made a comeback and inspires others to never give up. Goldstone regularly addresses technology and trade associations; in October he will be in Germany to share insights on how to reinvent the photo imaging industry,
ScanMyPhotos.com is ranked 16th on the Web100.com Photography listing and was included as “The Best of LA 2009” by Los Angeles Magazine. David Pogue profiled ScanMyPhotos.com in his “Personal Tech” column in The New York Times. Scores of other profiles are referenced on the Web site. The company has trusted KODAK brand products since 1990 and credits the Eastman Kodak Company with pioneering new ways to share pictures in today’s all-digital world. “We launched an entirely new business by commercializing KODAK scanning technology, KODAK Photo Kiosks and KODAK APEX (Adaptive Picture Exchange) printing to provide innovative new products for our customers,” explained Goldstone.

Sharing the news and pictures of a new baby can be done with a little photo book. It does not have to be a huge production or expensive – there are many simple and budget-priced books that can be chosen from.
A wonderful and caring approach is to create a tribute or memory book for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Here are a few tips… Caption and group the pictures to make sense for them. For example, someone with dementia is likely to be prompted by the inscription they once wrote on the back of a photo, even if it is cryptic to others. Be careful adding your own interpretations. But do add in names of others in the pictures and their relationships to your loved one. Maybe some added explanation and facts.
This can help you and the caregivers go through the book over and over again with your loved one, and for it to be a fresh experience every time.
It’s important for children need to see photos of themselves and their parents, and images of their grandparents at younger ages. They get a much better sense of their own identity through seeing their place in the larger family.
What better way to do this than give them their own family history book loaded with characters and stories? Pictures with captions, and more detailed stories they will grow into as they learn to read. They will be able to share this with their friends and classmates. Keep the separate set of digital originals on file, so that if a book is lost or damaged, you can easily have another made up from the same images.
So, with the range of books, styles, quality, formats and services available to you, whether online or at your local camera store, you can take advantage of this and create wonderful bound books, for whatever purpose you need.
