Photo Index Books - Labelling and cataloguing

Cataloguing Photos

I want to send you photos from my digital devices for a Photo Index Book. Do you catalogue my digital photos?

No. You know your photos best. Please create folders and name your digital photos accordingly before you upload them to us. Please see How do I sort my photos under the Scanning Services menu for more information about sorting your photos for the Photo Index Book.

Do I have to categorise and label every single photo?

No. We batch categorise your photos. For example: If you went on a holiday to New Zealand. You can batch categorise all your photos from that trip. If you want more information with your photos, please contact us and we can discuss with you what we can do for you.

Does your cataloguing service cost extra?
