Photo scanning in Sheffield
May 17, 2024, 07:52:40 pm
Unfortunately my dad passed away last week and we are now sorting everything out for his funeral in 2 weeks time.

Weíre currently staying in Sheffield whilst our attic conversion is going on. So don't have access to our Laptop/Scanner which we left up there.

Can anyone recommend anywhere in Sheffield that could scan around 30 photos (varying sizes and ages) for us and upload onto a USB for use at the funeral? Ideally they could make them all a standard size too.

If they could also download photos from an XD card (not SD) that would be even better.

We are staying in Crookes, but can go wherever is needed in the city.

Also, thanks for the advice and messages in my thread about his health, and his ultimate cancer diagnosis. Itís been a weird few weeks and whilst itís hugely sad and Iím totally gutted, my brain is just thinking of all the nice times we had together which has made it weirdly nice at the same timeÖ

My deepest condolences James. Losing a parent is a profound, disorienting experience. I'm glad you are still able to access the good memories and feelings.

Sorry to hear the news James, this seems a lot sooner than I had hoped. If they are just small photos, with the right light and some post processing you can take reasonable shots of old photos with a phone, that's what we did for my brother's.

Thanks, Ben. They do offer that service, but I randomly messaged a photographer (John Anderson Photography) too who kindly set up his computer for me last night and I managed to get everything scanned. So all set now 🙂

Cheers Andy/Chris. Yes it was very quick in the end, 13 weeks from diagnosis. Given how rough it was at times maybe thatís not a bad thing - he managed to stay home and keep his dignity throughout.

He was completely focused on sorting things for me and my step mum. From getting new fuse boards, TV aerials and Sky Q upgrade, to selling his car and transferring house ownership in his last week. He dealt with everything exactly as he wanted to.

He was really proud of what he had, and Iím glad he managed to keep donít purpose by sorting things out right until the end. Iíve even since done some DIY jobs with WhatsApp instructions that he sent me! Iím really proud of how he conducted himself since finding out. He was a tough bugger!
