Even more ways you can use photo books:
Many people are creating impressive and treasured family history photo books. They gather photographic material and prints from across the country and the world. The format, quality and condition of these vary enormously in the amount of care and effort in putting these together. If you plan to use a lot of old prints, slides or negatives, you will need the right scanner for your needs. Or you can use a scanning service, which will save you a lot of time.


If you are about to renovate, remodel or decorate your home, use photo books to tell the story. Do a before-and-after series on facing pages. Learn how to place a tripod for identical positioning. For interior shots, lower the viewing height, and point the camera level to avoid those converging doorways and walls. Include pictures of yourself and others working on the renovation, as part of the story.

Need a last minute gift? How about a simple photo book? Just make sure the book is one the recipient will enjoy receiving and will value, not just politely keep in a drawer and bring out when you visit them.

If you take a lot of good photographs for a family wedding, then this can make for a wonderful photo book. And you can add in other pictures of the happy couple as they first met, and on early dates, as part of the story. You can determine the style and quality that will allow you to make copies for the closest family members and friends. If funds are tight, maybe each person who wants one could offer to pay for their own, much as people do when they order from the photographer.

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.

Overview of The Best of LA: Reporting for Best of L.A. involves lurking and surreptitious note taking. It requires undercover visits to spas and bars, blind tasting carrot cakes from 15 bakeries, and investigating fishing holes. For the past few months we (34 reporters in all) roamed the city—sampling, questioning, comparing, debating. The results are in: We have determined the best cheese plate, children’s theater, ethnic vegan restaurant, and beach for novice surfers. We discovered that best doesn’t always mean most expensive. Accolades this year go to a cheap brow job, a Laundromat, a tuna melt, and jewelry under $300. So kick back and enjoy the fruits of our fun labors.

How Photos Can Be Protected From Natural Disasters, Advises ScanMyPhotos.com

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Expanding on the theme of National Preparedness Month (NPM), ScanMyPhotos.com is not waiting until the annual September event to issue an urgent recommendation encouraging people to take action and prepare for emergencies year-round. NPM is a nationwide effort sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready Campaign to increase awareness for preparing and to effectively deal with emergencies and natural disasters.

ScanMyPhotos.com, an associate member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), is urging people to have their analog photo snapshots scanned and backed up.

In advance of National Preparedness Month, ScanMyPhotos.com president and CEO, Mitch Goldstone, said, “Beyond gathering survival items when preparing for natural disaster emergencies, such as fires, hurricanes or earthquakes, think about protecting irreplaceable items in the home.”

While insurance may cover replacement of possessions that have monetary value, how are you protecting items of emotional value? Those shoeboxes of family photos tucked away are often overlooked until it is too late.

What is your backup plan?

According to ScanMyPhotos.com, the top six reasons to backup your photo memories are:

1) Offsite storage in case of a natural disaster.

2) Family divorce or relationship separations (duplicate copies solve ownership issues)

3) Halt ongoing fading and discoloration of your older analog pictures.

4) Easy sharing of photo reprints with others.

5) Making treasured photo gifts for anniversaries, birthdays and more.

6) Sharing stories and journaling to give a real ‘face’ for family tree genealogy projects.

“Preparing for a natural disaster is a year-round imperative,” explains Goldstone who said, “In an instant, when disaster strikes, you risk losing precious photo memories. Family photographs document our lives in a way that material items cannot. Once those photos are destroyed, that part of the family history is lost forever. Family photos can also be ‘lost’ due to neglectful storage, sun exposure and actual time. There is an urgency to preserve your analog photos before facing a possible natural disaster emergency.”

The daunting task of individually scanning each picture has been replaced with ultra-fast and affordable bulk photo scanning using Kodak technology and performed by photo imaging industry professionals with same day return. Your photos are digitally scanned and saved onto DVDs allowing you multiple off-site backups.

ScanMyPhotos.com provides secured Extreme Backup to archive all your images. Its menu of hundreds of other photo imaging gift and sharing items are posted on its Web site.
