Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I become a member today instead of waiting?
It's time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to have a scanned and organized photo collection, then you need somewhere to get training and the answers to all of your questions — especially the ones you don’t know you have yet. You need support, community, and most of all… accountability!
Additionally, if the price is important to you, the earlier you join the more you are rewarded by having a lower membership price. Membership prices will continue to increase incrementally over time as more and more content is added to the course library, and the membership becomes even more valuable.
The Scan Your Entire Life Membership is the place. If you really want to make a difference, the time is now.
Do I need to own a scanner and various tools before becoming a member?
Not at all! The Course Library contains lessons on my recommendations for everything you will need to complete your scanning project. This includes not only what scanner I recommend you use, but also my recommendations for scanning software, scanning tools and cleaning supplies, and computer storage drives.
It's alright if you already have everything you would like to use. But if you don't, you will find it most helpful to begin learning from the lessons inside the membership first before buying anything so you will be confident in any purchases you decide to make.
What equipment and tools will I need to learn from the course?
The course teaches you how to scan your photos and documents using a flatbed photo scanner and a desktop computer.
I teach the course using the mid-level Epson V600 Photo from their Perfection line of scanners. And I demonstrate using the “Epson Scan” scanning software that is included with all Epson Perfection scanners.
You don't need to have this same model of scanner or even an Epson branded scanner. Of course, understand it will be easier for you if you do have any one of the Epson Perfection models and the “Epson Scan” software because what I'm showing you in the lessons will directly relate to what you are seeing on your computer screen.
For those using scanners made by another manufacturer — such as Canon — you'll find most of the settings in their scanning software is very close to that of Epson's. So, you will still have a very similar learning experience.
In the course, I'll also show you which scanning tools and cleaning products I recommend and will be using throughout the lessons. And in the course area, I'll also give you links to where you can buy them if you aren't able to find them or similar items in your local stores.
Are all of the lessons video?
The course lesson content is primarily made using the video format. I believe many of the topics we will be covering is easier to learn when you can see and hear me demonstrate using edited video with audio.
However, some of the lessons are in the “text and image” format when it's more appropriate — such as learning about what hardware, software, and products you may want to use. A lesson like this is better in text form because I can provide images with text links to show you where you can download or purchase them.
Can I upgrade to an annual membership later?
Absolutely! You can upgrade to an annual membership at any time.
Not only does an annual membership save you money off the monthly price of being a member, if you live outside of the United States, it's also a great way to save on exchange rate fees. Annual memberships only create a single yearly transaction for you instead of twelve separate ones.
We're proud to offer the annual plan anytime you would like to take advantage of its savings to you.
Will my membership ever go up in price?
Even when the price for membership plans increase later for new members, you will always be “grandfathered-in” or “locked-in” to the lower price you joined with.
Is the training content complete or will more be added later?
The beauty of the Scan Your Entire Life Membership is it's always evolving and growing over time!
The SYEL Membership opened for new members in early 2018 with a course library containing 11 lessons (4-hours of video) as well as several text-only lessons, covering the “core essentials” of scanning. Then, each month, at least one lesson is added — sometimes more — to expand the scope of your learning.
The objective is to keep adding more and more content until the entire workflow of scanning and organizing your original and digital photographs is covered.
