Everyone loves a family story, and everyone has a story to tell. Recording these stories and preserving visual media, such as family photographs and films, in digital form will help safeguard stories and memories so they can be passed on from generation to generation.  

This session will cover scanning still photos, digitizing films/videotapes, basic photo enhancement, organizing your media files, and tips for recording oral history interviews with family members using your smart phone.

*Please note: This course is a virtual learning opportunity held via the online platform, Zoom. The link needed to participate will be supplied via email prior to the first session.
