KUSA - Since the 1970s, Americans have taken 550 billion pictures, but less than 1 percent of them have been digitally protected.
Some of these photos are precious family memories that are often difficult to store and preserve for future generations, a Denver business has taken on this task.
Scangaroo is a mobile-scanning company that drives to your home and uses high-quality scanning as well as retouching technology while you watch. They can typically scan someone's average photo collection in a day or less.
The business has a wide range of clients, including the Jefferson County Historical Society.
Scangaroo is currently based in Colorado, but the company has high hopes of rolling out nationwide.
