The holidays are a time for memories, sharing and family, so why not scan some of those precious family photos and send them to family via email, share them online or even have custom photobooks printed as gifts. You may be wondering – how do I get my pictures from these old dusty photo albums into a digital format.

Why not do it yourself right here at the library? Toronto Public Library offers free access to photo, slide and negative scanners across the city in our enhanced Learning Centres and our Digital Innovation Hubs.

While you are there, use Adobe Photoshop to repair and touch up your images before you reprint or share. You could even use video-editing software like Adobe Premiere to combine still images and music into a short video.
