The month-long celebration of family history and stories offers numerous events to learn how to preserve photos and documents for posterity.“In the three years of annual Save Your Photos activities, nearly 200,000 images have been preserved at these events,” says Richard “Rick“ Lippert, president, E-Z Photo Scan. “From natural disasters to negligence, family photos are being lost to future generations. The Save Your Photos Alliance is dedicated to raising awareness of the problem.”Lippert adds the need to preserve family photos goes beyond simply scanning old photos. Today’s consumers are capturing more personal photos than ever, and these photos also need to be preserved.“InfoTrends estimates 1.2 trillion pictures will be taken worldwide this year,” explains Lippert. “Many families don’t think about preserving those pictures now, for the benefit of families and for future generations. Without a print, it’s important for every family to set aside time to back up and to preserve family photos. That off-the-cuff selfie on your daughter’s iPhone could be a treasured memory in a few years. If that image is not backed up, that’s an irreplaceable loss.” Please enter your comment! Gov.
