Session Description

There is a right way and a wrong way to digitize your family history assets: photos, slides, letters, and documents. We want to save you from the heartbreak of digital files rendered useless by improper handling! Before you undertake to digitize your memories, make sure you understand best practices so that your digital files can be used for multiple purposes and will be preserved for future generations.

Learn about the five fundamentals of correct file handling, whether you are scanning prints or preserving native digital photos: Resolution – the quantity of pixels in a digital file; Compression – the quality of pixels in a digital file; File formats – which format for which purpose; Tags and Captions – best practices for identifying, labeling, and searching; Storage – how to properly store digital files to make sure they last.
