Just ten years ago, it was still commonplace to use a film-based camera during family vacations and other kinds of outings.
We can all remember showing up to a hotel and purchasing a few of those disposable film cameras. However, perhaps we never had that film developed after the trip. And even if we did go through that trouble, a digital copy stored on a hard drive is certainly preferable to a stack of photos in a rectangular manilla packet.
We may even have film negatives that are decades old, taken with cameras that would best be described as dinosaurs today. I’m sure you would prefer to have those transferred to a digital format, rather than have them collect dust in a box in the attic.
This video explains how to make the transition from film to digital using straightforward explanations. Hopefully, you will be able to store all of your old family photos in a more permanent manner. I’m sure future generations will appreciate your efforts!
Do you have several boxes of old film-based photos lying around? Have you tried converting them to digital before? Share your experiences in the comments section.
