Photo Scanning FAQ

How should I prepare my photos for scanning? Please take them out of any albums and stack them in the order you would like them scanned. If you would like them organized into folders. You can put each category in a separate ziplock bag with a label / note inside. Another way to organize your photos is to put them into a shoe box with sticky notes dividing and labeling the categories. AV Workshop will then scan your photos in order into unique folders according to your labels…Disneyland ’85, Camping ’99, Italy 1978, Graduation 2001, etc…
