Photo Digitizer was founded by Prahlad Delaney in 2021. Providing modern solutions to organize and preserve yesterday’s memories. Specializing in bulk scanning and editing of photos for clients nationwide.
I have been taking and collecting photos for over 25 years and currently have over 150,000 saved in my collection. I’ve worked as a professional graphic/web designer for 21 years and have extensive experience with photography (film and digital), photo editing, color correction and restoration. I’ve always had a talent for sorting and filing and am passionate about clean design and organization.
I have owned my own Web Design Consulting business for the past 6 years, which I love because it allows me to work from home on a flexible schedule. As a full-time father of an elementary-aged child, it is very important for me to be present at home to raise them and provide the best life I am able to. Due to rising costs I wanted to create a new business to expand my services and so after doing some research on the latest equipment available, including professional-quality high speed scanners, I decided to combine my talents in organization with my passion for photography and design to create Photo Digitizer.
Growing up, I was always told me that the best kind of job is one that you are so passionate about that it doesn’t feel like work; that’s how photo digitizing and editing is for me.
My father, who is in his late 60’s, also has a very large family photo collection containing photos over 75 years old. Unlike my collection, which have almost all been taken with digital cameras, his photos are all prints and most have never been scanned or saved on a computer. For years he simply kept them in bags, boxes and old albums. We often talked about how if there was a fire or hurricane that those printed photos would be lost forever. We always agreed that he should have them scanned but it always seemed like such a huge project that no one in our family had the time to take on. Sure, there are plenty of services online but they are very expensive and time consuming with shipping back and forth. So his photo collection has remained in old boxes at his house for years.
My father was my first client and I scanned his entire photo collection of nearly 8,000 photos, ranging from 3×3” to 8”x10”, and saved them on a single USB Flash drive. All of the original photos are now stored in acid-free plastic archive boxes labeled by category or family member name. We now have the peace of mind knowing that our family photos will be preserved for future generations. No more paper bags, elastic bands and bent photos in old storage bins. Our memories are now digitized, preserved and organized like they have never been before and my family can now easily share their old photos with family and friends online.
