ScanMyPhotos has a lot of fine print
How do you allow a company to mix up thousands of family pictures? I mean it'll take a lifetime to reorganize your pics afterward. And then nothing is rotated or anything. And if you have albums, you're supposed to destroy them, remove all the pics, and then have ScanMyPhotos mix 'em all up? And they even have tons of rules on how everything needs to be organized b4 sending.
It is true that the major photo outlets like Walgreens, Ritz and others have exorbitant prices for the same. And I probably wouldn't trust them either with all the traffic in those stores. Employees can't focus on solely on your pics.
There's a place doing albums I heard of - www.thedigitalconvert.com . They have good prices, do all the rotating and keep your stuff organized. They have an interesting slideshow option that'll zoom on each photo so you don't have to take each photo out.
But really, I'd Google for providers in your area. Fact is that your time is money and when you factor in the cost of a scanner, and all the time you'll spend doing the work on your own, it's just worth hiring someone. Flatbeds are not made for this kind of work.
