Do you have boxes of photos buried in the back of your closet? Or photo albums collecting dust on a bookshelf? Or maybe it's thousands of digital images hidden away on your hard drive or smart phone where no one can see them?
Well the good news is, there are many ways to start getting these precious memories out of the shadows and into the limelight where they can be enjoyed by family and friends. Consider one of these ideas from Epson:
- Preserve family legacies. You can uncover old family photos from boxes and albums with the help of a photo scanner, which will allow you to not only scan, but restore and organize photos, postcards and Polaroids. Certain models will scan both the front and back of the image to preserve dates and handwritten notes as well, then automatically upload them for sharing with family members online.
- Create lasting memories. With the help of a photo printer that has a built-in memory card slot and wireless printing features, you can edit and easily print photos directly from tablets and smartphones without having to connect and download your photos to a computer. Certain models will even allow you to create custom collages and even stationary.
- Share moments together. Go old school and gather family and friends for a modern-day version of a slide show. You can share larger-than-life photos and videos, indoors or out, with a wireless projector that displays images in HD. These portable devices allow you to take the show anywhere that's most convenient for the crowd to gather.
Whichever method you choose, these ideas will breathe new life into your photo collection, putting them on display for all to enjoy.
