What You'll Get
Upon development, photographs are valued at approximately a thousand words; over time, their worth decays to that of paraphrased CliffsNotes. Halt the hands of time with today's deal: for $21, you get $64 worth of any services—photo/slide scanning, Kodak Picture Kiosk orders, photo restoration, digital-video conversion, and more—at ScanMyPhotos.com's retail photo center, a division of 30 Minute Photos Etc.
The restorative experts at ScanMyPhotos.com provide a variety of services for original prints, slides, films, and videos. Use your Groupon for photo-scanning services and convert a shoebox bursting with 1,000 fading memories into high-resolution JPEG files that will last a lifetime perched neatly on your hard drive ($64 for 1,000 scans). (Those who plan to use their Groupon toward scanning should read these instructions.) If Aunt May has sprung a Sharpie Fu Manchu, take her in for digital-restoration hair removal and keep her feminine beauty intact ($39.95 per photo). VHS tapes and filmstrips, which lose quality with each handling and viewing, can also be preserved by conversion to DVD ($19.95 per tape).
Inside the retail location, ScanMyPhotos.com's KODAK Picture Kiosk is a one-stop mini-station for all your image-correction and customization needs. As you resize, crop, and chop your images, the friendly in-house staff at the Irvine retail photo center will happily help you achieve picture-perfect results. While this Groupon is valid only at the retail photo center and not online, please continue shoving fistfuls of Betamax tapes into your CD-ROM drive.

ScanMyPhotos.com began in 1990 as a small retail photo center in Irvine, California, but thanks to innovations in Kodak photo-scanning technology soon blossomed into a national, online picture preserver. Lauded by Popular Photography as the "leader in digitizing prints", featured by USA Today, and mentioned in both Forbes and the The Los Angeles Times, and profiled on KTLA-TV News, the company artfully converts printed memories into edit-ready, 300- or 600-dpi images conveniently stored on a data DVD, flash drive, or uploaded to the cloud.
Technicians can also convert slides and negatives into digital files, restore timeworn photographs, and transfer VHS or 8mm to high-definition DVDs so that moms can preserve their child's first birthday party and dads can update the home videos where they reenacted episodes of Charlie's Angels.
