ScanCafe, the world’s largest photo-scanning service, announced today that it has integrated the Amazon Cloud Drive API to offer customers one-click uploading of scanned images to their Amazon Cloud Drive account. The new feature means Amazon customers can effortlessly preserve their entire collection of old photographs and protect them, free of charge and forever, from loss, harm, and inevitable fading. All Amazon users get free storage for about 2000 photos (5GB), with the option to purchase additional capacity and if you are a Prime member you receive unlimited photo storage for free.
This integration significantly enriches user experience in scanning, organizing, and sharing those cherished old photos, slides, 35mm negatives, and even photos in photo albums. It makes it easy and safe to transfer memories to an Amazon Cloud Drive digital photo archive, with all the advantages in preservation security, accessibility, and image quality this brings. Amazon customers need never again undergo the hassle of manually uploading scanned images.
Amazon Cloud Drive provides failsafe preservation for digital data by removing the risk of content being lost due to failure or loss of a personal storage device. Similarly, direct uploads of images from ScanCafe’s award-winning scanning service offer Amazon Cloud Drive users the highest quality scanning combined with the most convenience in digitally saving those images. Those photos are not only rescued from the threats of loss or physical damage, but are also restored to their original color and clarity, and made newly available to enjoy and share. With the unlimited free storage now included in an Amazon Prime membership, those customers can literally store a lifetime of photos on Amazon Cloud Drive for free.
Laurent Martin, ScanCafe’s CTO, said his company’s commitment to customer satisfaction made the integration with Amazon Cloud Drive a natural fit. “You see Amazon’s zeal for customer service in everything they do, and ScanCafe operates by the same creed. We’re the only scanning service where photos receive an average of three to five minutes of editing by technicians to adjust faded colors, remove blemishes, and repair damaged outlines.
“And as the only company to have scanned 100 million images, we can combine technology innovations with economies of scale to make it affordable for our customers to rescue precious, memory-laden old photographs from the ravages of time. Now, integrated with the unlimited storage of Amazon Prime, together we can offer Amazon customers the chance to create a complete photo archive for their entire family, with the images safe, shareable, and as vibrant as the day they were taken.”
After consumers have uploaded their irreplaceable old photographs onto Amazon Cloud Drive, they are able to view and organize images that had been gathering dust and fading away in a drawer or shoebox from anywhere and on virtually any device. Amazon Cloud Drive has free and simple-to-install apps for full access from any mobile phone, tablet, computer or Fire device.
