Fancy Ruff-Wagner

Personal Photo Organizer

I help busy families who value their photos and family stories.  They have a mess of photos and other memories stored in boxes, old computers, and phones, but don’t have the time or emotional energy to organize them on their own.  I create a single, easy-to-search collection that lets them share specific memories with family and friends and ensures their traditions and important life events are accessible for their children and grandchildren.

Fancy's Photo Solutions provides me with the perfect motivation and direction to accomplish my photo organization needs.  I really appreciate Fancy's willingness to help me out with anything related to my photos.  She is patient and knowledgeable and knows just how to explain this so I can understand (not an easy task as I am technologically challenged!).  Without Fancy's Photo Solutions, my photos would just be sitting on my computer hard drive.  Instead, my most precious memories are right in front of me bringing me joy.

I approached Fancy’s Photo Solutions because I had hundreds of family photos of all sizes that I wanted scanned so that I could organize them and pass them down to my children and grandchildren.    I also had photos on my computer and phone that I wanted to be able to organize as well.  At first, I was a little hesitant because Fancy’s expertise was with PCs, not Apple products, but we got through that, and I was very pleased with the results.  I found it easy to ask questions, and I didn't feel intimidated by my lack of certain computer skills.  All my photos are now in one digital hub and I can manage them on my own.  We recently added a new granddaughter to our family.  I had my iPad with me and was able to immediately pull up photos of her mother for comparison.  The other grandma still hasn’t located her photos in boxes in the basement.  I highly recommend Fancy’s Photo Solutions, and, in fact, I plan to pass out her cards at work.

Yes!  Physical items to be digitized will need to be shipped to me, and we can do all else through the internet.  Contact me or set up a Free Consultation to find out more.
I do all almost all the work myself, including scanning photos and slides.  For home movie (film & video) conversion, I use a family owned and operated business that has been providing high quality, professional scanning and digital conversion services to commercial and municipal clients for over 25 years. I use them because they provide me with digital files, not ONLY a DVD, they have all the right equipment and extensive experience dealing with damaged and broken film and tapes.
Every local service I have spoken with only provides the end product on DVD.  While DVDs make great watching options (for now), they do not make great permanent storage options.  They are breakable and as technology progresses, they will become obsolete.  In addition, the files are compressed and it is difficult to make good copies, let alone do any editing.  I want to provide my clients with digital files that can be edited, copied, and backed up.  I also provide DVDs for easy watching options.
The answer depends on your end goal.  If you just want an organized collection of printed photos to hand over to the next generation, then I suggest a high-quality archival box.  I sell one, and you can also find them online at companies that provide archival supplies to photographers.  The boxes you find at craft stores are generally not archival quality and will degrade your photos over time.  I am available to organize those photos for you, with you, or teach you to do it.

If you want your printed photos to be more accessible and shareable, then I suggest a high quality photo album or scrapbook.  I know of several places these are available (and it's not your local craft store).   I am available to do it for you, with your, or to teach you to do it, if interested.  
I have some concerns about free cloud storage.  Please watch my YouTube video about cloud storage for more information.  https://youtu.be/tig9aVVYADw
