Preserving Digital Photographs
Saturday, April 13, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Digital photography has gradually dominated since the 1990s, but will our descendants ever see our electronic photographs? It is highly unlikely unless we take steps to preserve the images. Come learn about:
*The basics: what is a digital photograph?
*Technical standards for good images
*Scanning old family photos
*Pros and cons of digital storage devices
Presenter: Joan Hostetler owns Heritage Photo & Research Services. She regularly consults on photograph preservation and digital imaging with historical societies, museums, libraries, and archives throughout Indiana. She studied preservation and archives management at the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film.
Sponsors: The program is part of the Photograph Preservation Workshop Series sponsored by the Carmel Clay Historical Society, the Carmel Clay Public Library, and Heritage Photo & Research Services.
