    It seems that the new catchword for the last 10 to 15 years is "digital". Any new product or service introduced has the buzzword digital included as an adjective. This one little descriptor, somehow suggesting a magic bullet, or potion that solves all the issues that may have plagued an industry or product before it's digital transformation. There is no doubt that digital and computer technology have transformed society and certainly the photographic community. That's not bad thing. Progress is natural and as artists and craftsmen we always strive to improve out craft, to do more with less. Digital technology has brought fantastic options to photographers, professional and amateur alike that could not have been imagined even 20 years ago. That's the great news.....

Now are you ready for... the Scary part....

     The reason that we work so hard here at The Photo Finishers is that we believe that photographs and video, and audio recordings are important, they represent our history, and can trigger, emotional memories that can mean more in the future that we could ever imagine today. If you have taken the time to visit our site, I am betting that you feel the same way. My Grandparents are gone now, and I can tell you that the photographs and video I have of them are priceless to me. When I see the pictures I created inside their house, I remember being there. I can hear the sounds and smell the smells. Those images are priceless, and I can't bear the idea of losing them. In the old days, just about the only thing that would happen to a picture, was a natural disaster- a fire, or a flood. Now with all the advances of digital photography, comes something even more insidiously devastating, that can wipe out more memories that fire ever did. It's not particularly violent, but it is something that we see all to often here at The Photo Finishers...

The damaged Camera Card

The Locked up Camera

Formatted Card

Crashed Hard Drives and more...

 

     The biggest problem with digital is that we are not making backups of our "negatives" whether on CD, or as prints, or on redundant hard drive systems. We have been lulled into a sense that digital is forever and infallible, therefore we become lazy in printing and archiving and creating albums for our photographs. Then a lighting storm comes along and every photograph from the last five years (Graduations, birthdays, weddings, holidays, vacations)---- all gone---- forever. Don't let that happen to you. Utilize printing services, make at least one archival gold CD or DVD copy of your files. Please trust our experience in saying that these things do happen. Please don't let them happen to your family. It's to important to us. It is our passion.

     If the unthinkable happens, we do offer professional card and disc recovery solutions right here at our Albert Pike Photo Finishers Location. We have very consistent high percentage of recovery, just take every precaution not to need that service.

Services include:

Images/files to CD and DVD

Images/files to Gold 100 year DVD and 300 year Archival Gold CD

Hard drive Storage on site

Self Service and Full Service:

True Photographic Printing from any digital Format or source media to any print size

Scan from prints to CD or DVD

Custom Video presentation from Digital Media or prints

Digital Media Image Recovery
