Presenttips - Ge nytt liv åt en gammal bild. En guide till hur du scannar gamla fotografier i 5 enkla steg:

I'd like to read this article in english, please!


Har du också en hög med gamla fotografier från en svunnen tid fyllda med härliga livsberättelser upplevda av familjens generationer? Foton som dock efter alla år tenderar att vara lite slitna och blekna? Eller foton som kanske bara är bortglömda av de personer representerade i dem? Vi tycker det är hög tid att ge bort något betydelsefullt och personligt genom att återanvända, återuppfinna och återuppleva. Så vad passar då bättre än att ge nytt liv åt dessa föråldrade fotografier genom att digitalisera och printa dem på nytt och på nya sätt? Här är en steg-för-steg-guide till hur du ger nytt liv åt en gammal bild samtidigt som du skapar de mest personliga och minnesvärda presenterna som finns. Till dig själv, eller de du älskar mest. 

För vi tror att de bästa presenter är de som verkligen betyder något. Presenter som väcker känslor till liv och framkallar minnen. Eller, om vi inte själva varit där, presenter som ger oss en inblick i hur våra far- och morföräldrar var när de var unga. 


Livets bortglömda stunder som gåva 

Steg 1. Börja leta bland alla gamla bilder och välj ut dina favoriter. 

Steg 2. Digitalisera dem. Starta kameran i din iPhone och ta nya bilder av de gamla godbitarna: 


Steg 3. Öppna din telefons inbyggda editor och gör dina bilder klara för print:



Croppa din bild så den ser ut precis så som du vill att den ska printas.


Ljusa upp

Öka exponeringen för att vara säker på att bilden blir ljus nog i tryck. 


Steg 4. Ladda upp och beställ. 


Skapa din gåva

Öppna din Framkalla-app och välj produkt. Ladda sedan upp din bild/dina bilder, beskär och beställ. Dina återupplivade minnen levereras redo att ges bort inom några arbetsdagar.  


Steg 5. Ge bort och återupplev. Så enkelt att skapa något så meningsfullt.
