We all keep priceless photos that we want to look back in time as they are a sentimental memory of our life. There is still hope in restoring and digitizing these old photos, videotapes, and discs. Some apps you can take advantage of is Google Photoscan or Photomyne’s Photo Scan App. It lets you use your smartphone’s camera to capture the photos and even tries to remove glare. If that is too much work, you can also ship your photos to the pros at services like ScanMyPhotos.com and Memories Renewed. On the other hand, converting videotapes like VHS, Betamax, MiniDV, or Video8 would require another device to record like the $170 ClearClick Video2Digital Converter 2.0.
