Shrewsbury School is very happy to recommend Save Photo Ltd to any school or institution intending to digitise their photographic collections or archives.

We decided to digitise the photographic collection for a number of reasons. Frequently these days’ requests for information on Old Salopians come with a plea for any visual evidence of their time at school – either photographs of themselves, their House, the site, or sporting achievements. This meant a long and tedious search through the relevant boxes; then cumbrous scanning and dispatching of the image. We have a great deal of photographic records, but these are dispersed in various boxes or else in unwieldy and ancient photo albums. To be able to access the relevant image by a few clicks will be an invaluable resource.
The plan is that the whole Salopian community will have access to this collection – current members of staff, parents and, of course, Old Salopians.
Save Photo Ltd provided an excellent service. Some of our older photos were in very poor shape – ripped or damaged. The company did the best they could with these to deliver a high quality digital image. Other photographs came in enormous sizes or else long scrolls of whole school groups.

The company managed to take separate photos of these unusually large compositions and then stitch them together to form a single digitized image. Many of our photos were pasted into heavy albums, some at awkward angles, but again this difficulty was surmounted. In short, the service provided was very competent and professional.

National Photography Month ambassador Tony Hadley recently appeared on the popular ITV chat show Daybreak sofa where nearly 900,00 people tuned in to watch Tony back the ‘Capture and Keep’ campaign.
Tony told Daybreak hosts Kate Garraway and Dan Lobb of his first hand experience of losing valuable pictures stored digitally following an expedition to Picchu Manchu. He is an enthusiastic supporter of the aims of National Photography Month and spoke with real feeling on the need ‘in this disposable digital age to take time taking photographs, getting them printed out and treasured in an album’
