As our month of showing vintage photo projects comes to an end, we wonder what will become of the photographic images of today? Photos like the two above have been treated well over the years. When our customers bring in vintage photos to be framed, we frame them to be protected and enjoyed. Sometimes we scan and reproduce so that other family members can have their own copies.
One hundred years ago, a printed image was precious. Times have changed due to digital photography. Most images are stored and not printed. It is so easy to lose a flash drive, hard drive or other storage device. Will our descendants be able to access our photos from dated devices?
Right now, a printed photo is still the best way to preserve an image. Having a digital back up is a smart idea too. Do you have a plan for your photo storage?
Thanks to Gary of Holland for letting us share his framed photos of his Mom. We know that he will enjoy the framed photos for years to come.
