A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a shoebox scan of up to 200 photos, which includes digitally scanning and archiving them on a CD, at The Photo Store (a $49.95 value).
The Photo Store carefully and considerately preserves old photos by digitalizing them into 300dpi images using Kodak scanners and software. Bring a shoebox of up to 200 of your photographic memories and allow the practiced preservationists to turn solid matter into digital data, allowing you to store your pictures on disc or drive and save them from the dangers of time, decay, and reconstructionist historians skilled in Photoshop. In four days time, the image alchemists extract every last detail from film's flimsy picture-paper using high-speed commercial scanners, capture them using Kodak capture software, and archive them on CD. Special occasions and photo-documentaries charting a child's growth from toothless babe to professional kazooist can be captured and housed in the safe, protected gigabytes of computerized data to be passed through the technology-loving hands of time.
The Photo Store
The Photo Store's professional photographers immortalize precious moments with family-centric photography sessions tailored for nearly any milestone in life. Maternity and children's portraiture capture the bond between parent and child with sensitive lighting, and customized senior portraits celebrate a young scholar's accomplishments by portraying them in the letterman's jacket of a successful athlete or the ceremonial suit of armor of a Key Club secretary. Subjects snag fleeting memories using backdrops of local cityscapes or parks, or pose at the studio's stunning garden decorated with a 1950s vintage pickup, sunny country porch, waterfall, and re-creation of a Tuscan villa.
