I have used ScanMyPhotos.com several times for both prints and slides. They are not the least expensive however the quality is goo and they are local – in Irvine. They run specials on a regular basis – sign up for their newsletter and order when there is a 33-40% off offer. I generally get the highest resolution they offer with no other options.
The file search tool Spotlight on Macs is a fast flexible way to find files, except when it isn’t. Occasionally Spotlight does not find files I know are on my Mac and the index needs to be repaired.
To force Spotlight to delete an old index and create a new one:
- Click the Privacy tab.
- Drag the folder or disk that you want to index again to the list of locations that Spotlight is prevented from searching. Or click the Add (+) button and select the folder or disk to add.
- Choose Apple menu () > System Preferences, then click Spotlight.
- To add an item to the Privacy tab, you must have ownership permissions for that item. To learn about permissions, choose Help from the Finder menu bar, then search for “permissions.”
- From the same list of locations, select the folder or disk that you just added. Then click the Remove (–) button to remove it from the list.
- Quit System Preferences. Spotlight will reindex the contents of the folder or disk. This can take a long time.

On a high note: Cambria Film Festival wraps up at Hearst Castle
Just as the sun started to dip over the hills of San Simeon, we made our way up the winding Highway 1 on Feb. 11. Nary a zebra was in view tonight as we make the turn for Hearst Castle.
With Valentine’s Day just days away, one would be hard-pressed to find a more romantic spot on the Central Coast than the castle, and the founders of the first ever Cambria Film Festival agreed, which is why the closing champagne gala and awards ceremony is being held at the movie theater on-site at the state park. In politically divisive times such as these, festival organizers decided their event would center on something we could all agree on: love. Every film screened over the weekend touched on matters of the heart in one way or another. READ MORE
