With Mother’s Day fast approaching, are you looking for a little something for that special mom in your life? If your mother loves sharing family photos and memories, and would like some help working with digital images, she’ll enjoy the step-by-step approach of my new book How to Archive Family Photos.
Beginning with the photos in your camera or smartphone, we work through the steps to
- move images from device to computer
- select adequate storage
- add simple filenames
- back up
- add tags, captions, and keywords
- edit, export, and share
But because most family historians have heritage family photos too, How to Archive Family Photos includes a section on scanning and digitizing old pictures. You’ll read how to choose the best scanner (or camera) for the job, how to set up your equipment, and then how to preserve those original photographs after digitizing.
And finally, you’ll be inspired to share your family photos in a variety of projects, including collages, family history books, calendars, gifts, and more. Step-by-step instructions show you what to expect from different online photo services, and an entire section on Core Project Skills with Project Board worksheet will help you plan your next — and best — family photo project.
