How to Scan and Store Your Children’s Artwork for Safekeeping?
As a parent, you want to cherish your children’s artwork and keep it safe for years to come. Scanning and storing their artwork digitally is a great way to do this. Here are the steps to follow:
Gather your children’s artwork: Collect all of your children’s artwork that you want to preserve.
Sort and organize the artwork: Sort the artwork by child, date, or type (such as paintings or drawings).
Choose a scanner: Use a scanner that is appropriate for the size of the artwork you want to scan. For smaller artwork, a flatbed scanner may be sufficient. For larger artwork, a wide-format scanner may be necessary.
Scan the artwork: Scan each piece of artwork using the appropriate settings for color and resolution. Save each scan as a high-resolution image file.
Organize the digital files: Create a folder for each child and organize the digital files by date or type. Label each file with the child’s name, date, and title of the artwork.
Backup the digital files: Store the digital files in a secure location, such as an external hard drive or cloud storage service. Make sure to have multiple backups in case of hardware failure.
Consider creating a digital album: Create a digital album for each child’s artwork and share it with family and friends. This is a great way to showcase your children’s creativity and preserve their artwork for generations to come.
Overall, scanning and storing your children’s artwork digitally can help to ensure that their creativity is preserved and protected for years to come. It also makes it easier to share and enjoy their artwork with family and friends.
