Digital Decluttering: High-Speed Photo Scanning (Premium)


Earlier this week, I described my recently renewed effort to scan decades of paper-based photos. Thanks to a reader suggestion, this task is suddenly a lot less daunting.

Depending on your age, you may have some amount of paper-based photos sitting in albums or loose in boxes. Brad, for example, doesn’t own any paper-based photos, aside from his wedding album. But I’m almost 20 years older, and as I described in Digital Decluttering: Photos (Premium), I have an astonishing number of paper-based photos, loose and in albums, most of which date from 1983 through 1999 or 2000.
