The color quality of your old photos, especially those photos from earlier years, is largely dependent on a number of variables including how and where they were stored, dye quality and stability, and the quality and condition of the paper that they were printed on. Many environmental conditions, including temperature and moisture can also play a part in causing your old photos to fade and deteriorate.
It is a well known fact that your old photos will continue to degrade with every day that passes. To ensure that your old photos are preserved for generations to come, photo scanning to CD or DVD or Flash Drive is a simple and inexpensive way to preserve your family history.
Photo Fact: A useful tip from the National Archives: "Avoid copy prints made on computer printer paper, as these fade even faster than old color photos and are unusually sensitive to water!"
