Bringing the Past to Digital Life

Share Article preserves memories of the past with technology of today

69-year-old Ray Epps had boxes of 35mm slides gathering dust at his home in Houston, but when he decided it would be a great idea to preserve them for future generations his local photo shop was unable to help. Instead they referred him to the Internet to locate a digital scanning service.

While the thought of packing up precious memories and shipping them across the country might seem disconcerting to some, Epps decided to give Arizona-based DigMyPics a try back in 2003. So far he has been thrilled with the results.

"I arrange the slides in the order I want, go online to fill out the order form, print it and ship it to them in Arizona," explains Epps. "I get an online receipt the very day they receive the package and I'm kept informed at least three times during the process. They're quick to respond, quick to answer my dumb questions and have a caring attitude."

Impressed with the company's service and the quality of his first order, he became a repeat customer and avid supporter of the company. After having more than 7,600 slides transferred to high-quality digital files and cataloged on DVD and CDRom, Epps now is preparing to have the company convert thousands of personal photos to DVD format. is a leading 35mm slide and photo transfer service company that is celebrating five years of digitally preserving the past for its worldwide customer base. With services ranging from photo restoration to print, slide and negative scanning, DigMyPics! is helping businesses better manage their photo libraries and families preserve cherished memories for generations to come.

"We understand that sending your photos off to some faceless company you've never heard of can be scary," says DigMyPics founder and president Scott Crossen. "So not only do we invest in the best scanning technology available, we also invest in the best employees around. We're a family run company and we only hire imaging professionals with university degrees in photography and the arts."

DigMyPics also has a strict set of safety and security processes when it comes to handling its customer's photos and slides, plus all of its work is performed in a climate-controlled operations center in Arizona. Crossen, a former software engineer, even developed state-of-the-art tracking and processing software to ensure the company knows exactly where its customers photos are throughout the entire process - from the moment you ship them to the company until the moment they arrive back at your home or office.

For Epps part, he says DigMyPics has lived up to its promise and handled his valuable family photos and slides.

"My children and grandchildren are absolutely awed by the final product," says Epps. "After all, that is why we old folks do this - for our children and grandchildren to view in the future."
