I have approximately 3000 old family photos currently in old photo albums that I want to digitally scan and then place into new photo albums. The photos are mostly 4x6, but some are older and some are smaller than 4x6 (e.g. around 2x3 or so) and some are bigger. My retired mom will be scanning these photos and setting them into new photo albums, so time isn't too much of an issue. My questions are: - What photo scanner would you recommend for purchase to scan these photos? - If there is a photo scanning service that you can recommend, which one would you recommend? I am concerned photo scanning services may lose our photos, damage the photos, do a poor job, etc. I have a hodge podge of old photo albums that currently contain my photos. I want to purchase new ones to replace the old ones. I want to purchase albums that help preserve the photos, will not damage the photos, will accompany photos of various sizes, and is modestly priced. What photo albums would you recommend?
