Make your family photos shine!

June 10, 2024 - June 30, 2024

Workshop Summary:

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, you'll learn the basics of photo editing using the latest software tools and apps.

The workshop is structured so that you can tackle one lesson at a time using your own photos. Each day, you’ll work on one aspect of photo editing to get hands-on experience using recommended software tools and apps.

Workshop Workload:

  • Approx. 8 hours to complete, plus practice time to work on your photos
  • 100% Online using our eLearning Platform
  • 7 lessons complete with skill-building exercises and quizzes

Workshop Design:

Each day's lesson will provide you with a packet of learning materials and the day's photo editing objective.

This workshop is meant to be hands-on and intensive, so be prepared to devote some time 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.

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
