Old photos are some of the most precious possessions for many of us. These photos capture some of our favorite memories and emotions, and are great carriers to take us down the memory lane. Unfortunately, the older a photo gets, the more difficult it becomes to preserve it. Photos are prone to damage, wear & tear, discoloration, etc. That’s why it’s important to convert all our physical photos into digital scans that can be easily stored & duplicated multiple times for redundancy. There are a number of ways in which you can scan physical photos and create digital scans, but nothing is as simple, easy to use, and instantaneous as using Scanner Pro 8 on your iOS devices.
