Costco Photo Centers are Closing

Did you hear that Costco is closing the Photo Department at all locations? Here’s the letter that’s on their website….

As the letter indicates, they are keeping their online services for now. The problem is that there is only one way to get your full resolution images from their online site. You have to order a USB with the images, but they *don’t ship those* and they are only available for pick-up at the one hour center. Once those centers are gone, they may not guarantee that you will be able to get your images from their site. If you have any important images there, I recommend you order that USB right away because it can take up to two weeks, depending on location. I also read that if you don’t order a print, they may delete your photos.

One more detail…since they are eliminating the in-house centers, they are eliminating *all* drop off services. This includes VHS conversion and ink refills. At this time, they do not offer mail-in options for conversion services.

Did you know that I offer the same things as Costco in my business? And you receive $20 to spend as a new customer. I’d be happy to help you navigate and work on a plan to get and stay organized.

And this might be a good time for some who are interested in beginning a home-based photo printing, organizing and scanning business like mine. I can teach you everything you need to know. This is a great side hustle or full time biz. It is fun, you would be helping people with something they need and making a nice paycheck too. Message me if you are interested, I would love to share more with you.

I am leading a Business Opportunity session tomorrow night (1/14/2021) at 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern. Click the image below to join!

Forever Friday: Historian Recycle Bin

Did you know that Historian has a recycle bin?  When you delete from Historian, the media goes there.  That’s both good and bad.  Good: you can recover accidental deletions.  Bad: it takes up precious hard drive space.

I make it a regular habit to empty the recycle bin.  To do that, click File > Properties.

Then click Support > Empty Recycle Bin.  Sometimes it’s kind of fun to see how much space you will recover – especially if you haven’t done this in a very long time.

How much space did you save today?  I’ll send you a little goodie to the highest number posted here.
