It’s nearly the time of year to be going up into the loft and bringing down all the Christmas decorations, locating the tree and seeing if those lights from last year still work, or if you need to buy any more.
As you’re in the loft, you may cast your torch around to see what else you’ve been storing up there for years. Some old VHS videos perhaps, kept because you couldn’t bear to part with them despite not being able to watch them anymore. Old photo albums? Boxes of slides, kept even though you no longer own a projector, or even never got round to buying one. Squashed between a couple of boxes, an envelope of negatives.
Should you find any of these in your loft over the next few weeks, why not have them scanned to a DVD? Chances are, you’ll have no idea what’s on those negatives until you use a negative scanning service to find out. Holding the slides up to the light’ll give you some idea, but until the slides have been scanned, you’ll be missing out on the full picture. The slides may well have become faded over the years. Having them scanned at PiciScan will revive the original colours, bringing your memories to life once more.
Unless you act now and have your photos scanned, your albums of photos could start to lose all their colour, become damp and mouldy, or worse. It’s extremely hard to track down anywhere that will sell a decent VHS recorder these days. The only chance you have of reliving old home videos is having them transferred to DVD.
As the nights draw in and we look forward to lighter mornings and longer days, thoughts turn to Christmas and the New Year. But, Janus, the god after whom January is named, looked forward and back. Christmas is a time to look forward, but also a time for remembering. Have you got some old memories that you would rather not lose? Rescue them now, before it’s too late! Have PiciScan digitise them for you to enjoy for years to come.
