Irvine, CA (PRWEB) June 01, 2012
June is here which means summer is right around the corner. The kids will be out of school and families are sure to take beach days and longer vacations, making unforgettable memories. We all hold close to our heart those memories we’ve created over a lifetime and we love reminiscing about events in our lives, family gatherings and special moments in the lives of the people important to us.
ScanMyPhotos.com, the photo digitization company founded in 1990, is introducing June as Southern California Photo Scanning Month as a reminder to gather your precious photo memories in boxes and albums, unlooked at for years and preserve them. Photos degrade naturally over time and before you know it, that photo of Grandma with you on your 5th birthday can be faded and washed out. Also, sun exposure, water and mold can easily damage fragile print photos. Don’t let Mother Nature get the best of your memories.
Southern Californians know the summer is not only a time for having fun in the sun but it’s also when dangerous wildfires destroy homes. While insurance generally covers the replacement cost of items with monetary value, people forget that irreplaceable photo memories cannot be replaced with a check once they’re gone.
“It is important to remember that beyond gathering survival items when preparing for natural disasters such as fires, hurricanes or earthquakes residents should also protect the irreplaceable items in their homes and offices, including photo snapshots,” says Mitch Goldstone, President and CEO, ScanMyPhotos.com.
During Southern California Photo Scanning Month, photo preservationists and ScanMyPhotos.com are issuing an urgent recommendation to encourage people to take action and safeguard their irreplaceable photo memories by having them professionally scanned and digitized. Once all the photos have been digitized, send copies to loved ones and back them up online using services such as Carbonite, Google Drive, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa and Shutterfly to be rest-assured that generations to come will be able to re-live and enjoy all those special moments captured in pictures.
