Photo Restoration classes for the Iowa State Genealogical Society 2012 Spring Conference

It's been a few years since I was asked to hold the day at a genealogy conference. On Saturday, April 14th, I'm scheduled to teach 4 classes for the Iowa State Genealogical Society. Registration is only $65 IGS members/$75 non-members. 


Schedule of Activities:
8:00 – 9:00 a.m. Registration and Vendor browsing

9:00  – 9:15 a.m. Opening remarks

Lectures:
9:15 – 10:30 a.m. Photo Restoration from Start to Finish Demonstration
Learn how to scan, restore and print a photo like the pros from beginning to end. Fast, but fun. Audience members are encouraged to bring photos from which Eric will choose one to use during this demonstration. Includes scanning and restoration.

10:30 – 10:45 a.m. Break

10:45 – noon. Dating Photos and Photo/Document Software for Genealogists
You don’t need to “pirate” a copy of Photoshop or spend money to work on your pictures. Eric will review the best free and for-pay photo editing programs available. Are you curious about the date of a photo? Learn some simple, but important tips to help you identify that photo.

Noon – 1:30 p.m. Lunch. Included with your conference registration!

1:30 – 2:45 p.m. Photo Document Preservation
The best thing you can do for family photographs and documents is to avoid restoring them! If you have photos in good condition, Eric will share some tips to keep them that way. Bring your questions and originals so he can share tips for handling and preserving them.

3:00 – 3:15 p.m. Break

3:30 – 4:45 p.m. Fixing Color Photos with Adobe Photoshop
Family photo collections are full of fading color photographs. This workshop will provide useful techniques for restoring lost color. It will include colorization of B&W photos. Audience members are encouraged to bring photos from which Eric will choose one to use during this demonstration.

Cost for this exceptional full-day conference: $65 IGS members/$75 non-members. Conference fee includes lunch. Contact IGS office to register: 515-276-0287; igs@iowagenealogy.org. Spring Conference Registration Information. (Scroll to bottom of page.)
