A few years ago, I had a house fire and lost nearly everything. Luckily, though, only a fraction of my old family photographs were destroyed.
The fire really woke me up to just how fragile my old photographs are. In a blink of an eye, 80 years of family history could have been literally up in smoke.
Since then, I have been on a quest to find out how I could scan two boxes of old photos, slides, and 35mm film.
I found several online companies that would bulk scan my photos, but most of them were out of my price range and required me to send my pictures through the mail.
I didn't feel comfortable trusting my only pictures of Aunt Shirley circa 1968 to the mailman.
Luckily, I discovered I could do it myself at home for half the cost.
The PICS2SD is a slide and film scanner that is fast, easy to use, and doesn't need to be attached to my computer to scan.
Did I mention fast?
In this article, I share with you my review of the the PICS2SD digital scanner.

I'm pinning this to my Things You Really Need to Know board.
I've never owned a scanner, only used friends'. They aggravate me. I could write a novel waiting for them to scan. Lol. This is much faster.
Great news, sounds just the thing I;m looking for. I've got an Epson scanner, quite old but still working, but Oh, it is sooooooooo slow. I plan to spend an hour a week on it but give up in frustration as I can't do anything else while the scanner is working.
Thank you Katie!
Found this so useful came back to tweet as I'm sure many others face the same daunting task I do, this was helpful and gave me peace of mind, knowing you have so many priceless photos and images just lying around nags the mind knowing we should do better with them.
Thank you. It's something that everyone needs to do. They're irreplaceable
Nice article and recommendations. Old family photos have a sentimental value for most people and this is a great and efficient way to digitize and preserve them for ever.
