My World in Miniature

Today I ran a cross a web page where you upload your photo and it makes it look like a miniature model. I tried this with a photo from Krakow and thought it looked pretty good.

Go to Tilt Shift Maker to convert your own photo into a miniature. Let me know how it goes. here is a photo I did of the Cloth Hall in the Main Square in Krakow, Poland.

Photo Scanning

A while ago I posted something about looking for companies that will scan all of those old photos. I looked online and found a few places online that specialize in mass photo scanning.

I would do this myself, but I do not have 10-20 minutes per photo to spend scanning photos. Especially if I have over 800 photos I would like to scan from the past. Most of these being from when I was a kid and when my parents were children.

The bad part with these services is that you must send your photos out and pray that they do not get lost. How does insurance cover that?

Now I need to find out which ones ship to India or Costa Rica for scanning. Even more of a chance of your photos getting lost.

A few companies I found are listed below:
Dig My Pics
Brite Pix
Digital Pickle
Scan Cafe
