I've always scanned my own photos and converted my videos to digital format myself. But it took so long and required such attention to detail that I hadn't done any in many years. I finally admitted to myself that I would never finish it so sent it all to DigMyPics. About 200 pics and 39 video tapes were processed in a few weeks. Their staff was very helpful and their process and communications were excellent. The website explains everything in great detail. I requested a sample output video file to ensure that my editing software would handle it. A very pleasant experience.
They shipped back my stuff and a USB drive containing all of the files. The photo and slide scanning was better than I expected (and much better than I could do myself). Video files are full resolution and standard AVI format.I can now finish editing a lifetime of videos before my own lifetime is over.
