Like most of us years, and maybe even decades, of your family photos are in the proverbial shoe box under a bed somewhere. Derrick Story has a new course, Digitizing Family Memories, that will help you through the process of converting them to digital format, from selecting hardware to the scanning process, and metadata entry, to long-term storage. Derrick talks about how to get started with his potentially daunting task so you won’t be intimidated, takes you through a workflow that will help you get the most out of the project, and addresses issues such as security when making choices about where to host your photos when finished.
