The Mess to Success Method

A Guide to Preparing Your Print Photo Collection for Scanning

What is the Mess to Success Method?

The Mess to Success Method is a set of instructions for managing a print photo organizing project from start to finish, including scanning, and adding dates, keywords, names and more to the digital files.

It is based on 3 years of my experience and testing. I sell the instructions to other professional photo organizers. I also supply a modified version to my clients.
