Photogenealogy: Scanning your Family History Photos

Part of our new Photogenealogy course.


Part of our new Photogenealogy course with Ann Larkham. 

This introduction to scanning & scanners will begin with a brief discussion about the benefits of scanning our family history photos and will highlight some considerations before getting started, including resolution and appropriate file types. Then a selection of scanners will be reviewed, and the pros and cons of each type will be explored. The talk will conclude with a brief overview of the organising process for the files that result from scanning. For more information about the organising process see the 'Caring for your Digital Family History Photos' talk.

Can't make this time? Book anyway as this talk will be recorded and available to watch for 2 weeks.
