Home 9 Photo Scanning


Who among us doesn’t have photos that we’d never part with for all the money in the world? The problem with photos is that over the years, they deteriorate, and in as little as a generation, they can become blurred to the point where they’re virtually unrecognizable.

If you want to preserve your memories, the best course of action is to have them professionally scanned and digitized.

At eRecordsUSA, we can take your photos – any kind, in any condition – and convert them to stunningly sharp digital images that will last for generations to come. We work with snapshots, negatives, APS, 8mm, videotape, even your existing scans. Whatever you bring us, we promise to deliver it to you in an enhanced digital format.

Typically, our clients for photo scanning are families or individuals who want to preserve precious memories, but we also serve artists who seek to preserve digital images of their work and businesses that want to keep a photographic record of projects in progress.

What is Photo Scanning?

Photo scanning is simply a method of converting your physical photographs into digital file format. The process typically also includes enhancement – removing wrinkles, stains and other imperfections in the photograph. Once your photos are scanned, they are stored on CD/DVDs and/or online.

Why Should I Have My Photos Scanned?

You should have your photos scanned because you value them. They’re a record of the important events in your life, and the events in the lives of the people you love. You want to look at them over and over, and share them. In digital form, they can be with you forever, even if something should happen to the originals.

You can have multiple copies of CD/DVDs made of your photos to share with your family and friends, and also to serve as backup.

Can’t I Just Do It Myself?

Of course you can. And if you only have a few photos, it might be very easy to scan and store your treasured shots. But if you’re like most people, you probably have hundreds of photos, and its human nature to say “I’ll just save them to my hard drive right now, and I’ll back them up later.”

Sadly, hard drives die, and if you haven’t backed up, those valuable scanned photographs are gone forever.

When you consider how cost-effective it is to simply turn your photos over to a service like eRecordsUSA for scanning and storage, it’s a worthwhile investment. We’ll not only scan and store your photos on digital media and back them up to the eRecordsUSA cloud for instant retrieval, we’ll ensure that any sub-standard shots are enhanced for clarity and continued enjoyment.

Will I Get My Photos Back?

Of course you will! We will handle your valued photos respectfully and with the utmost care. You’ll have an opportunity to approve your scans, and once everything is to your satisfaction, we’ll provide you with digital copies and cloud backup, and then return your treasured photos to you in exactly the condition you delivered them to us.


At eRecordsUSA, we can scan virtually any sort of photograph, of any size, in any condition. Perhaps you have a box full of old snapshots, or an album that’s been lovingly added to and preserved over the generations.

Whatever form your photos take, you can rely on us to treat them respectfully. We use a variety of high-tech scanning equipment, which means that we can deal with either individual snaps, or scan an entire album without needing to take it apart.

We can also take individual images from your photo collection, albums and libraries and create editable, enhanced photographic images.

We understand how important your photos are to you, so we further commit to you that we will never outsource, never send your images overseas, and never allow anyone else to touch your photographs once you have entrusted them to us. All scanning and enhancing will be done safely and discreetly in our secure facility.

You can have your photos scanned in color or black and white, with or without enhancements, and stored on CD/DVD or online, or both.

    What Our Client Says

    •   Mr. Sharma is very professional and friendly.  We had eRecords scan our books for archive purposes.  The quality of their service is amazing.  They are fast and timely.  I am very glad that we used eRecords to scan our books and wouldn't hesitate to contact eRecords if we need digitizing/imaging service in the future.

      thumb Esther L.
    •   eRecords has provided an amazing high quality scanning work for our books. Mr. Sharma is very detail oriented and the results are just excellent!

      thumb Eliana D.
    •   I contacted eRecords for a small-scale scanning job. Although they usually work on large projects, Pankaj was more than willing to help with what I was looking for! The scans that came back were high quality, and delivered in a timely matter. eRecords was also the business that quoted me the most competitive price. I would definitely recommend - Pankaj is knowledgable and a great collaborator to work with on meeting any scanning service you may need.

      thumb Nina P.
    •   ERecords USA has provided Fast, Timely, and Amazing quality service for scanning my books and magazines. Ritika, Pankaj, and their Staff are very friendly, flexible, and easy to work with. They go above and beyond in their service. I give them  A+++.

      thumb Rahul P.
    •   I have used eRecordsUSA on three separate occasions and each job was performed exceptionally. All files scanned at high resolution, organized, and returned in a timely manner. Pricing was also very reasonable for such time-intensive work. Management was also very good with their communication.

      I am a digital nomad that owns zero paper, so having all of my files in Google Drive is imperative. With Google's OCR (Optical Coherence Recognition) I can now find my files at lightning speed. ie - I search for [deed], [roof repair], [assessment], etc. and all relevant files "automagically" appear.

      thumb Cameron V.
    •   EXCELLENT quality work. VERY professional. I had some kids art work scanned high resolution that was too large for the scanners at copy shops. eRecordsUSA did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them.

      thumb Stephen M.
    •   ERecords USA provided a fast and accurate turnaround for a request to duplicate X-Rays.  They ensured that copies were accurate prior to payment and went out of their way to produce within a short time.

      thumb Beth S.
    •   Erecords scanned 56 bankers boxes of legal case files and other professional documents for me. This was a particularly difficult and complex job because, in naming files, they had to work from both a written file inventory and the file names on the folders themselves and use a consistent file naming protocol that Erecords and I agreed upon. They did an outstanding job of following this file naming protocol and organizing the documents in digital form to create the file structure that I intended. This job was also difficult because of the variety of page sizes and the age and condition of some of the documents; they managed to accurately capture everything. They also made the job easier for me by picking the documents up at my home. Pankaj at E records was invariably courteous and helpful and spent the time needed with me before the job to develop a digital file structure to make the documents most useful. I highly recommend Erecords for document scanning.

      thumb David L.
    •   I chose eRecords to scan over 2000 pages of yearbooks and several hundred photos from the early 90's to early 00's. I was not disappointed. They were one of the few locations in the Bay Area that I contacted that let me drop off and pickup the material in person. The JPG and PDF scans that they sent me were extremely high quality and OCR'd the yearbooks so I can search for text. They were able to repair one of my yearbook's bindings to the point where I couldn't even find the repair! This place is professional and good value for what I received. If something ever happened to my irreplaceable yearbooks and photos I know they're digitized now and backed up to multiple locations on my network and cloud! Highly recommended, Pankaj and eRecords!

      thumb David B.
    •   I found eRecordsUSA on an internet search and contacted them to inquire about scanning to PDFs a set of some six hundred old, faded, tattered pages of an underground/community newspaper I co-founded fifty years ago.  I lucked out on this first call, finding a most professional, efficient, accessible, top notch company to help me archive my newspaper despite these trying, pandemic times.
