will my disks be organized?
You decide how your scans will be named and organized when
on disk. Some people organize their photos by year and others
have their collection organized by person, place, or occasion.
When preparing your photos, slides, or
negatives for a scanning order we recommend you sort them into groups.
Each group will have it's own folder on your completed disks,
and each scan will be named according to the name of the
group it originates from.
Suppose you have two groups of slides; one from 1976, and
one from 1977. After scanning your completed disks would
contain two folders; one labeled "1976" and one
folder labeled "1977". The scans inside these
folders would be named accordingly. The 1976 slides would
each be named 1976IMG001.jpg, 1976IMG002.jpg, 1976IMG003.jpg
and so on. The slides from the 1977 group would be stored
inside the 1977 folder and would be named 1977IMG001.jpg,
1977IMG002.jpg, 1977IMG003.jpg and so on.
How many groups
can I have?
You can have as many or as few groups as you see fit for
your order. We ask that you have an average of at least
20 photos, slides, or negatives per group.
How do I label
We need to know which photos belong to which group. If you're
having prints scanned you may want to place all the photos
from a given group into an envelope and then write the group
name on the envelope. If you have slides you may want to
rubber band each group together and then insert a post it
note under the rubber band to identify the group. If you need assistance with
grouping and labeling your images feel free to contact
us or call 800-383-2903.
What if I
need the images from each group scanned in order?
If you wish to have the images in each group scanned in
a specific order please be sure to let us know. You'll also
want to indicate the order the images are to be scanned
in. If you have prints that you want scanned in a specific
order please place them in order and label the back of each
image with a 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. If you have slides that should
be scanned in order please place them in the order they
are to be scanned in and label each slide with the number
in which it should appear - 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. You may wish
to write the number on the corner of each slide mount with
a pencil or pen.
