Photo 911 - Save wet photos!
Here are some simple steps you can take to help save your water-damaged photos:
1. Handle carefully. Do not touch image area.
2. If photos are stuck together, do not pull apart but soak in clean water until they loosen. If photos are stuck in frames or albums, take a picture of the picture first, then place under a gentle stream of cold, clean water until they loosen.
3. Rinse photos in a container of clean, cold water. Again, do not touch image area.
4. Dry photos by laying flat on absorbent white paper towels (without print), changing towels hourly until photos are dry. Consider weighting corner tips to prevent curling. Use a fan or dehumidifier in room to circulate air and reduce humidity.

What our clients say about what we do...
Other scanning companies offer amazingly low unit pricing. But most aren’t local and all use mechanized methods to scan the photos, have restrictions on the photo size, folder and file naming and the number of photos you can put in a folder….I chose Pixorium because I could work with them in person. Jiffy made sure all my questions were answered and MY folder and file naming requirements were met...and the scans are great. My sisters and I are very happy. - Winston Cagle
It has been so much fun looking at the scanned slides! I've soooo enjoyed having the pictures at my fingertips. I made a 'booklet' for dad on Father's Day...and I'm sure I'll be using them for cards for years to come! I am a true believer and think it's a perfect gift for those people who have everything. - Pat Kiley
When my client requested you resend the sample video and book to her a couple weeks ago, it was so she could show them to me. I love them! I thought the video looked like a motion picture movie and I feel sure her mother-in-law is going to be thrilled. I hope I can send more clients to you in the future, you do good work!

I could not have created such a special book/gift for my husband’s 60th birthday without Jiffy & Pixorium. After collecting the pictures, the rest was a breeze. Jiffy had them scanned and organized quickly and efficiently. She helped me understand that the book was going to tell a story – an invaluable story of my husband’s life and she encouraged me to get friends and family to contribute in writing for the book as well, creating a more multi-dimensional piece. The book contains the last words that my dad wrote, as he passed away a week after the book was completed. It is a family treasure and will only become more valuable in years to come. - Sheryl Meddin
