Read Review

Scanning originals, whether via a dedicated scanner or camera, can be a very tedious process. With the advent of high quality digital cameras, a number of people have started using DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, etc., to digitize their collection. However, there has not been a good guide to getting the job done well. Until now.

It’s a guidebook, in 13 chapters of text with 246 pages in full color, together with 9 hours of video, covering every step that you might encounter along the way, including: choosing the right gear for your needs (and budget); choosing the right lighting and camera settings (including how to determine your camera’s sharpest aperture); checking for sensor dust; handling, labeling and cleaning prints, slides, books and negatives; copyright issues; pre- and post-shoot workflows; image organization and backup; retouching/restoration; keywording; sharing images; and creating meaningful multimedia stories about any topic related to your content. It is a delight to read a section and then watch the accompanying video that shows how to put what you just learned into practice.

In essence, this book and its accompanying DVD (which includes the entire book in digital formats for both computer [PDF] and tablet [EPUB]), conveys the processes to create an archive that will set you on a never ending path of discovery—connecting your past, present and future.
