    I have a bunch of old 5x7 photos that I'd like to digitize but I don't want to scan in each photo individually.

    Anybody know of any good options to do this efficiently? Most of my photos are your typical 5 x 7 and I figure I have three options:

    1) find some type of scanner (or photo scanner) that can automatically feed the photos from a tray and spit them out (just like a regular scanner I guess - but mine is a top-load scanner which doesn't autofeed)

    2) find a local company that can do this (already checked the yellow pages and a few different "archiving / scrapbooking" stores and they didn't have anything that wouldn't require me to stand at a machine for hours doing basically the same thing that I'm already doing at home.

    3) find a national service that will let me mail in my pictures and they will send me back a couple of DVD's with my images on them (I don't mind paying some $$$ to do this)

    Any advice?
