Using a scanner you can turn your old photos into digital content, but you have a preference for DIY, you may more like to use your own light box to scan the photos in your old album.
This is a simple and practical light box built by a tech savvy from indtructables. As we can see from the images, the handmade light box consists of three white corrugated plastic sheets and a white LED strip. The light box has four sides rounded by the LED strip inside in order to deliver bright and all-around light for scanning. Meanwhile, there is a rounded hole designed for the rear camera of your phone on the top of the main sheet, and another top sheet features a custom opening to perfectly fit the contour of your phone. When all have been done, the light box will help you turn those old photos into digital photos with ease.
All making steps have been unveiled by the inventor. If you also want to make the light box by yourself, jump to instructables for its more details.
