How long would it take you to find a copy of that photo of the family around the Christmas tree in 2009? To post that great sunset photo from yesterday on Facebook? To recover from your disappointment when the storage card in camera suddenly goes bad, taking pictures for the last two years along with it? After this workshop all of those scenarios will be solvable.
- How to get your photos off your camera or cell phone with as little effort as possible (even automatically!).
- Examples of free software you can use to organize your photos on your computer.
- Workflows to make sure your photos are backed up in more than one place.
- Ideas for how you can use the photos so they’re not just gathering virtual dust on your hard drive.
Led by Justin Schell, Digital Humanities Specialist, and Amy Neeser, Research Services and Plant Sciences Librarian, both of whom are involved in the Personal Archiving collaborative.
Sessions are limited to 19 seats. Registration opens on April 3.
