When I wanted to get a digital copy of a very old photograph, for a funeral, the best result was when I took a photo with my iPhone and then printed from that. Any of the Kodak shops, if they’re still open, would do the printing.

The one I used for any printing etc is in Jomtien not far from the arch in the row of shops between VT7 and the beach. Don’t know if it’s open now.

I have an ap called photo scan, its Android but I'm sure there would be an Apple equivalent.

Its designed for scanning photos. It lines up to the edges of the photo and removes any parallax error. It also allows you to fix the lighting.

Just an added note... years ago I scanned an old photo and posted it in a forum.  The  photo showed a checkerboard effect. weird.

At the suggestion of some guru, he suggested I rotate the photo just a bit and rescan.

That worked! No chequerboard!

I have no idea why or how this worked.

above is a great suggestion if you want the best possible low cost solution.

I would assume a proper Photo Scanner.

My Epson Perfection V33/V330 is knocking on a bit but still pretty good.

If you can't find a shop with one, for a single photo I am in Central Pattaya.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
