What to do with Vintage Photos?

I was thinking if there's a market for old black and white vintage photographs.  I got a lot of family photos taken at the turn of the century between 1900-1950's and there's a lot that highlights old popular go to places back then like restaurants, churches, beaches, roads, hotels and the like.  There's also pictures of bikes, cars and other vehicles.  

Does anyone know of a site that buys vintage photos?

Buying I have no idea at the moment unless they are ideal pieces. I can however advice you to digitalize them if you have not already. There are numerous benefits that come with it along with ensuring that they are more durable and easily transferrable.

I would also recommend digitizing them. You can then list them on stock photo websites, so that companies or individuals can pay to download them. It won't make as much as selling the photographs themselves, but since the rights can be sold to any number of people, it will be a more steady stream of income.
There are several sites you might do this on. You might choose a site like fiverr if you have a large collection and some graphic design know-how. There, you can sell designs based around your photos. Otherwise, you can choose a site like iStock which will allow you to list your stock photos on a searchable database. You then get paid based on how many people download your photo.
You should choose a site to list them on based on what you want to do and how much you want to pay/get paid. Some sites have a listing fee, but pay more or offer free advertising. Other sites cost nothing to use, but may not be as lucrative. Good luck with your endeavor.

How do you digitaluze them. I want to know so that I do the same with mine?Digiral images are easily transferable,durable and duplucable.

There are numerous methods. Of the most common scanning is the best option. You may however need to look for professional services who have great scanners and can do repair work for the pictures digitally. On your own however you can work with photoshop and any other suitable photoediting apps.
picture taking is also applicable with a high pixel camera.

The only way I know how is to scan them. Then save them to your hard drive or storage device of choice (USB flash drive, laptop, smartphone).

Thanks for making this clear. I also have a lot of them, mostly when I was young but they are all black and white, well stored in around four albums. My dad was a photographer.

It's best to preserve them and keep them safe, but also have digital copies of them if ever they get lost or something. At least you'll have a copy, and you can print them anytime.

Vintages photos captures the moment when it was clicked. I love vintage photos. I want to preserve it as much as possible. We have a photo album that those photos are kept. I am so sad those kinds of photos are sometimes marred even though its inside the album.

The images of those vintages photos are in black and white. These are my photos of my grandparents and parents. During my time its already in colored. Now in my kid's time its in digital form. After this new generation what would be the future of the next generation?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Hahahaha the future generation will be advanced digital forms. The kind where the photos are stored in the best digital methods. The only advancements I believe will be in the sizes of the storage media. It will also be hard to convince them that there was an era where vintage photos were all we had.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Nice memories keep them well because they are special and they deserve to be preserved as such. You can also use them to catch up with your children and their children while teaching them about things long forgotten from the earlier generations.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jeffreyjose48

I have no idea of a site that buys vintage photos. Vintage photos can be preserved by scanning it and storing the file in a computer. They can also be laminated and placed in a wood frame.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Yeeah I was also advocating for that. Storing them in the digital format is waay wiser than in hardcopy. You can easily make copies and transfer not to mention the ease in carrying them.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jeffreyjose48

Yes. You are correct. I agree with you in storing them in the digital format. It is wiser to do it. It is easy to do. It is easy to reproduce copies if its stored digitally.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Actually I have a friend of mine that has turned this into a real business. They collect old photos from people and digitalize for them ensuring that any repairs necessary are done.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Wow! That's nice to hear. They are making a real business out of vintage photos.

Vintage photos are photos of the past. We should keep it as much as possible. The more that we keep it, the more that our children or children's children will have the chance to see what happened in the past.

I've seen people selling vintage photographs on eBay, but it can be hard sometimes knowing what to price your collection at. It might be worth taking a look at eBay and seeing what other people's photos are selling for, to have an idea of where to price yours at.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Barida

I agree with you on the need to check how much others are selling this type of collections so as to be able to make things work pretty better for them. I have not checked, but doing so we give anyone willing to sell their collections an idea on how to go about it.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

amelia88

Yes, I think otherwise you might end up pricing things too low (and lose out on money!) or price them too high and just not have anyone willing to buy them. It can be a fine line!




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

MomoStarr16

You really need to be careful on how much do you sell it. You might sell it only for a low price that actually cost so much. Need to find a good collector that honesty tells you the right price.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mark8625

Yeah that is a point. No need to sell if you only get small amount of money from that. You rather keep it for your family and let the new generations to come see those vintage photos of yours.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

RhealaineS

I totally agree with you. In my opinion, those photos will only have value if it came from my great grandparents. That's just for me. I mean I cannot speak for everyone.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

amelia88

Yes, if they're family heirlooms I don't think I could part with them, such as photos of loved ones. If they were just random vintage photos that didn't have that sentimental value I'd probably try selling them too!




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Chinet23

Yeah, I also take side with this group. It depends if they were just random vintage photos or they belong to the family. If it is the latter, I will preserve it and pass it on to our next generation so they will have the pleasure and the sentimental value of those photos and that to me is priceless.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

lei08pineda

Yeah, I agree with you. If he really wanted to sell the photos he have to look through the internet how much it is worth so he will not end up selling it at too low prices.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Steve5

That's a nice way of determining a possible price point. Sometimes you just don't know how much vintage stuff is worth. I guess they're worth a lot more for collectors. Especially, if it's in mint condition. I'm still somewhat puzzled by ebay. I haven't really used it compared to other online shopping platforms.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ajahcuizon

I have seen other people selling their vintage photos on ebay. Maybe the people who are buying them were collectors of vintage things. I agree that you should take a look first on the prices some other people post for you to be able to price your vintage photo right.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

MomoStarr16

Just make it a personal collection of yours. You don't away vintage. It is a wrong move. Just put it in a journal if you don't want to sell it.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

I agree with this. Memories are meant to be treasured and selling them is kind of a dishonor. I mean they are precious and it is even more precious to hold on to them and preserve them in a digital manner for durability.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

DarthHazard

Definitely. If they are personal pictures then it is great to put it in an album of some sort and to then keep it for your family because it is good to treasure such memories.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jennyfermanuel

I agree. But then he is looking for a site that buys vintage photos, maybe he wants to sell them actually. But it will be better to keep it for the meantime as we don't know if the value of those vintage family pictures will increase in time.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ballyhara

Looks like a good plan, and that's what I would like to do with tons of pictures my family has. First, I want to put them in digital, and then take the actual pictures and book them in a journal. Some friends donated their pictures to a big photo studio after making them digital, the owner wants to reuse and recycle photography material, and they needed to get rid of all those pics.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mdayrit

I don't really have an idea on where to sell vintage photos. But I guess it is better that you retain it in your possession as much as possible. Its value is still increasing the longer you hold it. Just make sure that you are able to take steps to preserve them.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

anchoreztin

If it is a picture of a popular person especially if it is signed, I will also keep it because it does increase in value especially if the person is iconic back in the days. Maybe I will sell it in the future in case I need emergency fund. Or I could give it to my kids as heirloom.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

It's similar to coins. I can imagine how current coins may go up in value as decades go by. This is the case for rare coins such as those that were discontinued in a short period of time. It can go up to thousands of dollars or more.

neillios

Maybe there are collectors of these kinds of photos. I have vintage photos used in art which looks quite stunning. Maybe you can asks artists if they are interested with your photos.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Barida

There should be collectors of those type of photos as well as having a website where they trade the stuff as well. However, the difference is that you get to that situation where you won't be able to easily see the site as they are not well advertised as how it is supposed to be advertised as well.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

There are auction photography websites on the Internet where you can post your vintage photos. Just be sure that they are in good condition because not all vintage photos are acceptable.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Can you share the name of those sites so I could take a look and see if I could sell my photos in it?

If your photos contain historical values then there is a higher chance for it to be bought in auction.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

I have no idea where to sell it, but I think some magazines and news papers willing to buy that photos if they issuing features about the old stuffs related to your photos. Better to keep that and restore if needed it might be a treasure someday.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

amelia88

That's actually a good idea, local publications might want the vintage pictures for different features, and most local newspapers have a dedicated photography department. Might be worth checking with them, and if they don't buy them they may at least have some decent recommendations!




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Oooh yeah. Especially for when they need to publish articles with an ancient perspective. Great suggestion but one would then need to ask around from any that accept the photos which is not that hard.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

And I think there's a local magazine in our country, who collecting old photos from 90's, and they feature it on their Facebook page and write an article about how simple the life before. But its really hard to keep the old photos, it becomes sticky.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Wow. Then that is an invaluable market that one can take advantage of. You will rarely get to sell similar pictures which is why it is important to have a variety and numerous photos when you intend to do it on a long term basis.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

Yeah, and one thing is, this is for educational purposes. The article wants to value and reminisces about the life during the old days and the place before when there was no high rise building. But because of some calamities, flood, typhoon, it's really hard to know if the normal people still have and keep their old photos.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Hahahaha. What do you even mean by normal people. Like what does someone need to ha e done to keep such photos because my guess is when you manage to have the precious memories you can do just about anything to archive them well. Only that the digital methods are better.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

Well, the technology before is not really good, compare nowadays that it's easy to save, keep it and make it looks always new. And the normal people for me still has the influence of, when the photos need to develop to see the images and they value it, that's why they keep it because it's hard to find the copy anymore because there was no USB, Memory, and even online storage before, just the camera film.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

amelia88

@aeon that's such a cool thing for that magazine to do. It's definitely nice to look back at old photos and remember how simple things were before mobile phones and the internet being everywhere. A much more relaxing time, that's for sure.

Their are some people who like to collect vintage photos. I've remembered when I was in High School there was a man who came to our house asking if he can buy vintage photos. There is a market for this business I just don't know if there is any sites in the internet buying these photos. But it would be good to keep it for now since the older it is it gets more valuable.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

There are some people who are still old school in almost everything they do and vintage photos is part of their collection, they would literally go to any length to get them even if it means paying heavily for them. My grandmother still love the one she had years back and they are like treasure to her.

Come to think of it some of the magazines ans news broad casters always publish vintage pictures that were waay before their inception. They may have obtained from various sources such as that man who may be a collector.

Some people say that you can sell old photos on eBay. But I am not sure how true it is. I don't have any idea about the website where you can sell vintage photos. I just strongly suggest using social media for selling your photos. This is a great way to introduce your collections to the people who might love collecting vintage photos. Build your network and optimize your social media platforms to get sales.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

It may have a good value if they are still of good quality, and if the subject of the photo really popular at the time. There are collectors who appraise vintage photos, although personal photos are of less value.

I think you just have to keep it as it is very old photos from your family. No need to sell it. Keep as a remembrance. I dont know if collectors will buy it.

ebay is one of those sites where you can buy and sell almost anything. They cater to those who want something rare or unique. You can almost buy or sell anything on ebay now a days. New things, used things, weird things or old things, you can sell it or buy it on ebay.

I do not know anything about selling vintage photographs online even though I have seen a lot of people selling old photographs through the site like ebay. However, you can try to organize an exhibition of your old photographs and you might land up selling your photos.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

That was a good idea. But the selling part for me is not good. It is a sad thing to sell old pictures with old memories in it.

I don't know any particular online market for old vintage black and white pictures but I'm sure that there is definitely going to be a market for such pictures because I'm very certain there are still people who crave the old school part of the world history today, even with all the development and impressive technology we have today, such people still value our past experiences.

DenisP

You know this is something that I’ve never really thought of, but you actually might have a good point. I know that there is definitely a sub-culture of people out there who are into collecting vintage things, so I suppose there is the possibility you might be able to turn over those photos for a profit.

You might want to check sites like eBay or put out ads on sites like Craigslist. It could turn out that there is a collector out there who would want to buy your vintage photos.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Chinet23

Those must be real treasure. Good to know you have those memorabilia, from what I understand can be century old. There must be sites online you can check. But I think that they will have to check the photos face to face so you will need to personally submit them. So it depends on where they are based if it's feasible for you. Definity those are valuable collections.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Barida

At the moment, I don't really know of any site that you can sell those type of pictures, but believe me that it is also a good way to earn as with the search on Google, you can be able to find answers on which site is going to buy it as well. However, I don't know how much you are going to make by selling them unless it is on high demand.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ajahcuizon

I prefer that you should keep those vintage photos of yours because not everyone is lucky enough to have those. It is a great idea to sell it but those photos were memories that are meant to be kept. But since you are asking for a suggestion where to sell it, I would suggest that you could sell it to those restaurants, beaches, hotels, etc. shown in the photo and tell them that it could be great to have those photos hang inside of their place so that people who visits them will know and appreciate how many years that the place have conquered. Again, a friendly advice, keep it as memories and treat them as a treasure because not everyone is lucky to have those.

If I have the chance to own a vintage photo that has a significance to me, I will carefully laminate it or place in a frame that would protect it from the harsh elements. I will put it in a nice wall so that other can view it.
It is not everyday that you will be able to own vintage photos. Also we dont know what the future holds, maybe it can have a historical value and you can sell it in a very good price.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

Lamination is the best way to protect the old photos, you're right, better to do that instead of keeping it in the photo album where they can easily become blurry and right, vintage photos need to be share.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

anchoreztin

Yes, also I researched that if you place a vintage photo in an ordinary photo album, there is a tendency that it will acquire moisture. Moisture can cause old to the picture. Molds can ruin the picture. Lamination is a good option for protecting a vintage photo.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

This is what happened to our old photo albums. It's hard to recover now and even to restore the pictures because the moisture completely destroys the pics and we can't find the film anymore. The good thing is, this won't happen nowadays.

I agree with you. Better laminate the photos of high importance. Especially those that retains your family's rich history. Take care of it properly, because it is really rare for a family to have a documentation of your roots and history.

I keep my vintage photos in photo albums or in a box. One time I gave them to my daughter. She said she was going turn them into digital photos. I never saw the finished product. She said some of the photos were really hard to digitize because they were so old. But one day I was looking at my son's Facebook profile and I saw one of the photos I had given my daughter. I was kind of annoyed that she didn't give me some of the digital photographs. But no biggie! As long I got my vintage photos back I'm happy.

I've digitized all family photos and saved it in an external drive for backup. One thing I hate about digital photos is that sometimes the file gets corrupted by either a virus or storage malfunction and it's all gone. I really think film cameras should not have become obsolete because digital photos which have been printed out really doesn't last long. It fades fast unlike photos taken with film cameras, those can last hundreds of years.

Selling it may be hard but you can post it online. I recommend for you to put them in a frame to protect them. You can not sell them if the pictures are already damaged. By putting them into a frame you can also display them in to your home.

That is right. Keeping it as a family remembrance would be better that selling it. Always remember the memories in there.

I think it might be hard to find a buyer specially if the picture is not from from famous artist before. But maybe you can still have something that can attract buyers if the place where it is taken can attract collectors. Just do some research about the places for the proper amount just in case some of your photos worth something.

From My Experience i Just Keep Them Because Some Day They Might Be Expensive Because One of The Famous Picture Was Sold For $2,300,00 at Brien Lebel's Old West Auction in Denver,Colorado and i Was Like Cool And i Saw my Grandmother old Box and i Saw alot of Old Pictures i Think its My be Rare at the Future.

There a re a lot of collectors who takes interest in old stuff and photos are one of them. It is very possible that some photos would come of value in the future. I heard of a story once of a man who had found a photo and just brushed it aside for many years. he thought it was just like any other dusty photograph, til one of the members of his family saw a particular person in the photograph that resembles a well known person in history. They sold the photo in a very hefty amount.

I would suggest just produce copies of those photos but don't sell the original one as this little treasures are very precious because they came from you grandparents or great grand parents. Just serve it as remembrance and remains of your loved ones that already gone. You can also show this to your future children as well as your grandsons and daughters.

I've found this site that buys vintage photos. This is the link: http://www.justcollect.com/photographs/ . I hope this helps if you really want to sell. But it would also be good if you keep them.

I think that vintage photos can be sold online. There are some people out there that uses vintage photos as displays for their businesses. I see this usually at coffee shops and restaurants. They usually buy vintage photos that could attract their customers like photos of beautiful sceneries of their locations and sometimes they look for photos that adds some aesthetic vibe on their establishment. If you consider selling your vintage photos, try searching some online and see how much can you price those photos. It would be also good if you keep some for you. Those pictures can be used for your future preference too specially that those photos belong to your family. It's precious.

Selling old photos are possible. I think that you must check out ebay. ebay is a site that sells a lot of stuff, even weird ones. It is a bit funny but there are a lot of people who really buys weird stuff there, so selling old vintage photos has a big possiblity. Who knows you might gain a lot more than you think.

Jenniferdainty

A lot of people are interested to buy antique pictures and they're even searching in online. You could post it on Ebay and indicate the year or era the picture was taken. But before selling it online, ask yourself a hundred times if you are really sure about it. Those pictures that you have, preserve the memories of your ancestors. If I were you, just organize a photo exhibition at your house. It could be in the hallway or maybe inside a small room. But then again, it is still your decision. What to do with Vintage Photos?

It would be good if someone would create a site or platform where vintage photos can be posted for sale right? Because there's really a market but there's no solid platform to use.

That's an interesting idea. Maybe there is but it's not that famous. I can see how people can make a business from selling vintage photos. The most expensive ones appear to be those with historical importance.

i remember something from this post. Our city government is looking for old photos of the city dated from 1980 or older. The photo will be used for a coffee table book and the owners of the pictures will be properly cited. Well, it's nice that their name will be included but I think they should give some appreciation money for that. It is a vintage treasure afterall, so maybe the owner deserves a reward? I guess. But I'm excited to see those old photos from them and I will definitely visit the place where they will be keeping those old photos.

That sounds nice. It's interesting to know that they haven't considered giving cash incentives. Maybe they should reconsider that. After all, it's not so easy to have something so well preserved.

If you ever heard about Shutterstock then this is one of the place where you can get some profit out of your images even those vintage one's. I don't know how they work but i tried contributing on their music section. Once your part of the contributor you can upload your images then wait for someone to get it on the plans that they have. When your images are chosen then it's the time you get paid or commissioned.

If I have that vintage photos, I will just keep it because it is just the only remembrance you have during old times. I actually envy people having vintage photos because my family don't have any. I don't know what happened that we don't actually have a copy at least one copy. It is very sad for me. But you know, if you want to let people see it and if you really want to share it to other people so that they can see the old days as well then try to reach out to your city government official because sometimes they are looking for a vintage photos which they will likely more put it on a coffee table or to any place that is worth placing for. And you will have a credit for that as well because they will include your name.

I think there are photo services that recover old or vintage photos. I don't know how they do it but they enlarged a small photo of my granddad during his funeral and the quality of the enlarged photo is retained. You won't even see any pixelized or traces of low resolution on the actual picture.

Normally, vintage photos are for safe-keeping. You can have them displayed in your rooms or anywhere in your house. I am not aware of any store or person why buys vintage photos of other individuals.

There is a time when our local museum bought vintage photos for a good price. They mainly look for photos with historical landmarks previously erected around the city. I advice you to ask around your local museum or galleries if they would like to buy your vintage photos. However, you must also digitized them so that it would good for safekeeping.

Display them on a website and look for buyers. Are they black and white? There is s photographer named Halim Ina who has displayed his for sale. Maybe you can get an idea from him. Google the name.

I think it's hard to find someone who can buy those pictures. Unless the pictures have something to do with popular figures, that way it can become a collectors item but if it is just a family photos then I think it's better to keep them for your next generation to watch.

I think you should digitize them as soon as possible. Film photos usually turn yellow over time, even if you don't expose them to sunlight. You could make it a personal project of yours to digitally restore those photos. Lots of tutorials on Youtube on how to do it. You can even add colors to B&W photos if you like. It just takes some effort to do so.

I have a lot of family photos. Most of them are of my great Grandma, a dancer who worked for an illusionist! Many of them are very interesting. One thing I have done is to take photos of the best of them. That way I can use them online and in projects while keeping hold of the originals. I also did this with some fading photos from the seventies.

Wow! You've got such a rich history of your family. I actually envy you for having so much from those years. If I were you I will take good care of the photos and display them in a room or studio. Through that, your families or the next generation can see the beauty of the ancient generation. You can also have a museum-like exhibition of old photographs.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I agree. Preserving them so that the future generation could also appreciate it is an excellent idea. Having it in an exhibition is also great, you can also earn money from the exhibition. It is a memory that could never be replaced with anything. It should be preserved and be taken care of.

Vintage photos should be keep in safe places, or preserved. Others may display it in the living room. Old memories is being remembered when you have this old photos. By seeing it, you will remember the exact event happened in that photos. In every pictures has it story behind.

Vintage photos are so precious, it carry a lot of memories and a lot of people wants to own one. So if that photo Doesn't have sentimental value to you then sell it online, someone might be interested in that.

You can keep your vintage photos so that if you want to look at it, the photo will still be the same and not look so old because you keep it in a good place. It's so nice to look at that kind of photos because it brings back good memories.

There are a lot of people who buys vintage photos, so I think you can sell it in ebay or amazon and see if someone is interested in those vintage photos.

Take it to the nearest pawn shop to get an idea how much it is worth. Then consult a professional photographer, or better yet, an antiquities dealer, or just an antique shop owner, that's easier to find.

Same with me. It is so good to reminisce your old memories or the memories of your grandfather or grandmother. It is such a good think to talk about it and learn from it.

I'm pretty sure there is one, if not online, then a brick-and-mortar shop near you or a collector who's willing to purchase vintage photos. I agree with the others, though, that it might be prudent to keep a softcopy of your photos before selling them. This way, you will be able to digitally restore the images and reproduce them in the future.

I think preserve it of course. Make a soft copy then try to find a way to earn from it. I heard theres a shop restoring picture for picture editing reasearch. They may want your vintage photos. But always make sure you have a softcopy before anything.

Our vintage photos are in an album. But I just learned a way to preserve these pictures using an art technique called decoupage.

I was really sad when I learned that some of our vintage photos before were damage by the strong typhoon that have passed in our country. Another cause also was the insects that was eating up the pictures which we really forget to take good care about. I wished to recover some vintage photos that we have because they are very important to me since it state the history of our grand parents which is something that very valuable to us.

What to do with vintage photos: I don't hear/read any information that can help you to sell the vintage photo. I will suggest like the others said, as of now do preserve it correctly the more you keep it the more the value of that photos increses. It was a great memorable things that you can keep longer easily.
