Default Photos to Computer??

Now this question is probably going to show my age and also my computer ineptness so no laughing. I can see you.

Is there a way and or a device that can scan actual photos. You know the kind where you use to take the roll of film to the drugstore or photomat and get them developed and place them on my computer??? If so what is a good device to get clear photos?? Thanks.

Have them install the photos on a CD and simply save them to a folder on your PC.

Absolutely! Depending on what you want to scan into your computer, there are several form factors.

I like the flat bed scanner style like this: https://www.amazon.com/Epson-Perfect...7Q2/ref=sr_1_6

Some folks like feeding their photos and documents through a smaller footprint device like this: https://www.amazon.com/Epson-Workfor...PYN/ref=sr_1_3

You can even get portable versions: https://www.amazon.com/Avision-IS15-...S6/ref=sr_1_10

If you have 35mm film or slides, you can also get film scanners to digitize those old slide shows.

If your printer is not too ancient, it may have scanner capabilities.

My printer is fairly new but it is not compatible to XP64 that I am running. So I can scan but that does not gt them loaded on the computer.

These are 35mm film photos no slides. They have been developed already many years ago.

That third one maybe what I am looking for. If they can scan to a flashdrive that I can use with my computer.

My flatbed scanner came with a program that scanned photos directly to my photo program... I replaced it and my old printer with a all in one Epson 430 scanner/printer that does the same thing... the flatbed that Hokie noted in his post would work for you, if the program/drivers work with your photo program.

My printer/scanner is a HP OfficeJet Pro 6978. I had to have a tech install it on my computer because he had to use older drivers from an older model. He said this model will not work with all the bells and whistles on Windows XP64 and I tried using the features but they do not work. I can not scan photos to my computer using it. I can make copies from the computer but that is about all. I can scan and make copies, I can Fax, but not much more with it.

My thoughts here is some 35 years ago I started my scrollsawing business. I use to take 35mm photos with my Minolta 35mm camera and made albums of all my projects and people were able to look through and pick projects. Now we have gone all digital and these old methods will not work because we sell through the computer. I have 100's of photos that I would like to transfer to digital. Doing so to a flashdrive or a disc could then do 2 things. One transfer to computer and send or use an Ipad for showing.

John,

Rather than doing it yourself (especially if you have a lot that you want digitized), why not just send them out? Lots of services available online and most will provide color correction and enhancement for faded prints and slides. Just box your originals up and send them off. A couple of weeks later your originals come back with a dvd of your photos scanned at whatever resolution you asked for.

Here's a link to the current "Top Ten Reviews" site on scanning services.

https://www.toptenreviews.com/servic...ning-services/

For what it's worth, I used Scan Cafe for a thousand or so slides about 20 years ago and was quite pleased, but a lot of water has gone over the dam since then.
