What's new at Bayside Digital:
At Bayside Digital, we do more than digitizing your family photos and videos. We pay attention to the individual needs of our clients and offer services which we might be able to provide.
We updated our PORTFOLIO section and it's no longer password protected. We took off the scanning service others have provided and our clients have chosen ours. We will show them to our clients, who might ask for samples of our work when they set up an appointment with us.
We added links to websites we created and maintain. As well as for those who sell online, we provide "lookbooks" and "styleboards". Those visual boards help clients make better decision when then decide to buy a merchandise.
If you are interested in this service, let us know. Contact us
Why do we hold on to our photos and videos?
This is the time of year, we think of memories we created over the years with family and dear friends. Some left us untimely, new connections formed and life moved on. The moments we captured with our cameras or camcorders don't change, while everything else in our life changes.
We were watching past videos of our family gatherings, Christmases and vacations in the past. It was amazing to see those videos taken over few decades and never having the time to see them due to my hectic life. Trying to balance family's needs with my career at the UN. Having those VHS and 8 mm tapes digitized made it a breeze to enjoy those precious moments on tape on Christmas day after our quietest and most enjoyable family dinner. It was amazing to see our sons crawling, decorating the Christmas tree with their father, birthday celebrations, the relatives on both sides coming over. Seeing our late mother and father, late sister-in-law, niece and nephews as kids, bridal showers. You analyse what was then and how things are now. Various personalities and how they changed unexpectedly over time. Vacations we took over the years.
What's the status of your family photos and videos? FYI videos deteriorate over time!! The sooner they are transferred, the better to insure their safety. Some of our videos already showed signs that they had started to deteriorate. Some segments we had taped without sound. Other times, the video was going on but the video taker wasn't aware that the tape was on. It's amusing to see those tapes. It was so easy to click on the year and go chronologically thru those tapes on our laptop.
What is the status of your family photos and videos? How about those mementos, greeting cards you don't want to part with, they could be scanned. We also scan documents in 24 languages and turn into searchable .pdf
What is your digital needs? We would love to hear from you! Share your stories.

Today's Digital TIP:
We had a question regarding finding an "invisible" recycle folder. We will share today how to get it to show up on your Windows 10.
You might have deleted a file or a folder by mistake and you want to recover it. What would you do?
Go to your windows "Settings", then click on "Storage Space"; Click on "tools"; then click on Folder Options and check "show hidden files". Now you will have the "recycle" file showing up as "recycle bin", whenever you open your Main C drive folder.
