Using Photoshop Elements™ For Genealogy


Presented by 

Ron Madson

The event was presented in person at the Oakland Family Search Library and online via Zoom

This class will bring together three of Ron Madson’s passions: Family History, Photography, and Computers. Ron will demonstrate how your own Family History work can benefit from the synergy of these three elements working together.

The class is designed for all levels of genealogists. Working primarily with digital images of genealogy records, documents and old family photos, Ron will guide you through the basic tools of Adobe Photoshop's little brother, Photoshop Elements™. 

Participants are highly encouraged to have access to a computer, as well as image files to work with. You should have computer literacy skills and a recent version of Photoshop Elements™ software installed. You can purchase it for $99.99 or download a free 30 day trial of Photoshop Elements™ from Adobe:
