Michael Katchen on using 1000memories.com
Have you ever wondered what your parents looked like when they were your age? Wouldn’t it be cool to see photos from your grandparents wedding? That’s what 1000memories is all about. Helping you save those amazing old photos forever and share them with your family.
While all of your photos are probably already on Facebook, it’s only been around for 7 years! The first photograph was produced in 1826 – that means there are tons of photos that haven’t made their way online… yet.
Why is that a problem? Well, paper photos are fragile. They decay over time, they can be destroyed in floods and fires, or lost in moves. Most importantly, there is usually only 1 copy that gets split between family members.
ShoeBox, 1000memories free iPhone app, is changing that. ShoeBox turns your iPhone into a social photo scanner that let’s you quickly digitize old photos, tag the people in them, and share them with your entire family. You can use ShoeBox to help your parents and grandparents save and share their old photos and all the amazing stories behind them forever.
Thank you Michael for your post!
