Photo Editing for Family Historians
Are you looking to give your faded, damaged, or neglected family photographs a boost so that you can share them with your relatives? In this one-week workshop, we’ll show you the basics of photo editing using the latest software tools and apps. Each day, you’ll work on one aspect of photo editing with a photo(s) of your choosing to get “hands-on” experience using recommended software tools and apps.
DATE: December 4, 2023 - December 10, 2023
Each day's lesson will provide you with a packet of learning materials and the day's photo editing objective. This course is designed to be hands-on and intensive, so be prepared to devote some time each day to the lessons. However, if you can't make a day's lesson, that's okay - they'll all be there to download and catch up on at the end. The discussion boards will close at the end of the week, but you'll have access to download the materials or read through them in read-only mode for a year after.
For best results, we recommend choosing a photo or a few photos to try the techniques you'll learn and determine which app or software you like best.
What you’ll learn:
- Key terms and best practices for scanning and saving your images
- Simple solutions to fix common problems
- Where to find websites and apps for “one-touch” fixes and more detailed editing
- How to use your edited digital photographs for photo books, slideshows, or other fun family history projects
