Taking a photograph and uploading it to your computer works just as well as a scanner and is often quicker. Some images and documents are too fragile to be scanned and a photograph is the best way of duplicating them.
There are companies on the internet who will scan in a large quantity of material.
I have photograph albums which are larger than A4. Can I get a scanner which will do this job?
Yes, there are scanners which have flexible tops and allow you to do oversize documents. Alernatively, take a photograph.
I have got boxes of slides to upload. How do I do it?
There are specialist slide scanners and again there are companies who will convert them into digital format. Once you have scanned them in, click on upload images and upload as with any other photograph.
I have got so much material to upload, I don't know where to start. Can you help?
We will always try to help with mass uploading. Contact us.
Can I just upload photographs without describing them?
Because we are gathering material for historical purposes we need to extract as much data as possible. If you haven't time to describe items as you upload them, put in some simple information and add to it later.
