need to scan 1,000+ photos
Aug 3, 2012

I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post this in.

I have about 1000+ photos in different shoe boxes. They are either 4x6 or 5x7 size. I want to scan them into my hard drive before they fade even more but the task seems monumental.

Is there a device that will automatically feed photos into the scanner the same way an automatic sheet feeder does? I've searched online and have not found one.

I have not had experience with commercial scanning services. Are any of these any good? I'm worried I'll lose my precious memories.

There was a local camera shop about 3 hr drive away which would let me mail them photos for them to scan. Their service was terrible and I don't want to send to them again. Nobody else offers this service near where I live.

Thanks for your advice.
