Gifts from Christmas past

No matter how organised you might be for the festive season, there is always someone on your gift list who is ‘difficult’ to buy for. The good news is that you may already have the ideal solution, tucked away in a box under the bed. If you’ve got old photos, negatives or slides, there are all sorts of great presents that you can make, if the images have been scanned to a computer.

Once the pictures are on your computer, it’s easier than ever to have your photos ready at the touch of a button, whether it’s just to browse through, to display, or even to wear. So how do you get your old prints from those scruffy albums or shoe boxes on to your computer? If you live in or near Chiswick, Fingertips can help, with our photo scanning service. We think a printed photo book, a calendar or framed photo is the perfect present for someone you love.

We can scan your existing prints at 300, 600 or 1200 dpi, create digital photos from your negatives, and even convert your VHS home videos to digital formats. There’s no reason to lose precious memories to the mists of time and defunct technology – we can help you share those memories again. And with this season of love and family celebration upon us, there is no better time to do it.

Why choose Fingertips for your scanned photo gifts this Christmas? Because we take the time and the effort to talk through your needs and what’s right for you. We’ll take you through everything – from the best quality for your needs, to how to organise your photos once they’re scanned. Best of all, our Tipsters will take you through the process of building your album or custom gift, so you’ll be much more confident next time you want to give someone a photo present.

I recently scanned a whole bunch of photos to create a book for my son’s 18th birthday – this is one of my favourites…preparing for his economics A’level even then…

Just think what fun you could have creating gifts with your old photos. The big day is almost here, so don’t wait to order your Christmas photo gifts – call Fingertips on 020 8994 7773, or email to find out more.
