Digital cameras are everywhere. They are convenient, and easy to use. The problem is, many of those digital pictures never get seen by anyone, because they never get printed.
News on 6 reporter Rick Wells says a Jenks woman has taken digital images and created a slick new version of the family photo album. Pictures are the way we store our memories, some are in frames, some on refrigerators.
More of us are taking digital pictures, it's so easy, and everything is on a memory card, lots of pictures that never get printed. Rachel Baldwin had lots of pictures and wanted to do something special. "We decided to put them together in a book." And not just a scrap book, a real book, like one of her daughter Savannah. "This whole book her one year old birthday party." There is that first piece of birthday cake. How many of us have a picture like that in a box somewhere?
Or a folder full of pictures of a special vacation. "This is our Disney trip actually right here." She thought a modern family photo album might work as a business. "For people that just don't have time to create their own traditional scrapbook, this is a great alternative." One that certainly looks more permanent.
Rachel Baldwin says they can take old and even damaged snapshots re-touch them to take out the imperfections, they almost look brand new again. â€œThis is a trip we went on to Mexico." Each page in the book can hold up to six or seven images, or if you like the whole page can be just one picture.
The basic price for a 20 page book which can have around 100 images in it is $100. Additional copies come at a reduced cost. "A great idea for family reunions or class reunions." Or any number of other things too.
