You’ve been scanning photos? Now what?

Scanning photos with Pic Scanner app is only the first step in bringing nostalgic memories back to life (If you haven’t heard about this must-have app for iPhone and iPad, or don’t know how to scan old photos, read this post).

Scanning photos ensures that they are preserved forever. But you can use them for lots more. Make your living space more beautiful – surround yourself with personalized objets d’art featuring your fondest memories and favorite people.

Get it done

Converting scanned photos into picture books, cards or desk calendars is easy. There are many online services, such as ShutterflyMixbook – to name a few (Find more recommendations here). That’s a nice way to celebrate beautiful, meaningful moments and people. These also make thoughtful gifts for colleagues, family, and friends – you can be sure they would cherish these.

Do it yourself

You can easily create slideshows, which can be put on DVD for viewing on TV. Transfer the scanned photos from Pic Scanner to your computer (Via Photos app), then read this tutorial on how to create a slideshow.
