Scan Photos to CD in Your Local Store

By August 6, 2009

Follow me on:

If you're just trying to clean out that one box of old photos and don't want to invest in a dedicated photo scanner to make it happen with lots of graphic-editing functions, you may decide to spend a few bucks instead to scan them to a CD at your local Target--they carry Kodak Picture Kiosks. These Kodak scanners scan at 300 dpi and can do 30 4x6 photos in just over a minute, according to Kodak, and burn them to a CD. They do offer some limited editing (eliminate red eye, for example). Expect to pay around $9.99 for a CD full of about 200 photos (and you can add a custom soundtrack if you like). Printed photo books run from $5.99 to $29.95.

I spent 2 hours scanning photos into the Target machines, then waited another hour for the prints & CDs… I didn’t want another set of prints but no one could tell me how to order ONLY the CD. So I paid for another set of prints and was told the CD was still processing and that they would need another hour. I left the store and returned 3 hours later to be told that they were not able to get the CD to work, so please submit again. Needless to say, I did not have another 3 hours to spend there. I did get a refund for the prints, but still do not have a CD to use to create my deceased mother’s Memory DVD. It would have been worth any amount of $$ to have this done successfully.
I would not recommend using Target Stores photo processing for anything important.
