Hi, I’m Prahlad!
I created the online service Photo Digitizer in 2021. With over 25 years experience, I specialize in bulk scanning and restoration of photos in a digital format for clients nationwide.

Photo Digitizer Founder: Prahlad Delaney
Prahlad Delaney, Founder of Photo Digitizer ( PhotoDigitizer.net )

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 23+ years and have extensive experience with photography (both 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 8 years, which I love because it allows me to work from home on a flexible schedule. As the father of an elementary-school aged child, it is very important for me to be present at home to raise my daughter and provide the best life I am able to. I wanted to create a new business to expand my services and after doing extensive research on the latest equipment available, including professional-quality high speed scanners, I combined my talents in organization with my passion for photography and design to create Photo Digitizer.

Growing up, my father 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 early 70’s, also has a very large family photo collection containing photos spanning 75 years. 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. 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 family memories are now digitized, preserved and organized like they have never been before and my we can now easily share our old photos with other family members and friends online.

I had a large bin of loose family photos that I had taken in my 50 years of marriage and Prahlad Delaney scanned every one of 15,000 photos, improving them as he grouped and labeled them. He returned them to me in 5 clear, hard plastic cases that each held 16 photo size cases holding 100 photos each and a few clear cases to hold larger photos and documents. I labeled the outside of these using an inexpensive label maker gun from Walmart. Even my negatives were in large albums with clear pockets. Plus, all these photos are on a tiny thumb drive. Prahlad showed me how to put them all on my home computer looking like they were taken yesterday and Prahlad taught me how to use a free program to catalog them and further crop, lighten, and spot-remove the photos if I wish. I can even colorize the black-and-white photos. Now I can easily email photos from "The good old days" to all my family and friends and they can print them or post them or email them to their family and friends and I will always have my originals and negatives! Thank you Prahlad!

I had over 2000 photos digitized many of which included very old, tiny photos and negatives, many torn and faded. All were restored beautifully. I highly recommend this business.
