Debbie Menk


I am so pleased with PhotoPanda. I have a dozen very bulky photo albums that my children do NOT want. I took out every picture and scoured the internet looking for the most reasonable and professional photo scanning service - and PhotoPanda is it!! They digitized my entire collection of photos (1500) for a fraction of the price of other services. The digitized photos are scanned as is, and then a second set of files are provided where the digitized photos are enhanced. WONDERFUL - the enhanced digitized photos are amazing. Many of my photos are more than 50 years old, and they look like they were taken with modern cameras in the enhanced versions. All of my photos were returned, packed neatly and carefully in one small box - much easier to store! I received both a USB drive with all the photos (original scan and enhanced versions) and a code to access them online - which also was a breeze. There is no easier and more affordable way to have your photos scanned and preserved than PhotoPanda.

What sets PhotoPanda apart is their attention to detail and their state-of-the-art scanning technology. Each photograph was handled with the utmost care to ensure no harm came to these precious memories. The resulting digital copies were nothing short of remarkable with an additional scan of the back of the photo which captured notes that Mom had made through the years. The scanned photos displayed a level of clarity and vibrancy that I was not expecting. PhotoPanda's commitment to delivering the highest resolution scans meant that even the smallest details and nuances of each image were faithfully preserved. The colors were vivid, and the images were free from any imperfections or distortions. Finally, the USB drive was impressive. Nice keepsake for Mom's old photos! Highly recommend without reservation. In fact, just sent my second box yesterday!

Photo panda provided a great service in scanning our photos. We were very pleased with the quality, the transparency of the service, and the prompt return of the originals. The enhanced color really helped the color of our faded photos. The fee was very reasonable for all that was done.

After doing a bit of research on photo scanning companies ... I sent 900+ family photos to Photo Panda and I'm thoroughly pleased with the work they did. It was worth every penny and done far faster than I could have done it myself. What really impressed me is that they didn't just scan the pictures but they also scanned the backs so that I have any notes that were written on them. They also "processed" the scanned images improve the image quality. They delivered the original scan and the enhanced scan and OMG what a difference. The fact that Photo Panda goes through that extra step clearly sets them apart from any other company that would just do the scan and send them back. It's pretty rare that I've publicly "recommended" a company ... but big praise and appreciation from my family for what these people do. Thank you Photo Panda from the Finnerty family.
