Look at this very cool scanner!!! It's the Kodak s1220 photo scanning system. It's not cheap (over $2,000), but it looks very cool! You can get the photos out of the shoeboxes and into your computer. Drop a stack of photos into the feeder (they can be a variety of sizes) and go!
I have so many boxes of photos that I would love to use, but I would love MORE to be able to alter their sizes and fix their blemishes before using them. I like digital photos because I can use them so many more ways by changing the size or look. Scanning them one by one would take me forever - but this... would be cool!!!!
Maybe some LSS's will catch onto this as a service and start getting these as a service for customers!
