How to Convert Old Photographs, Slides, & Videos into Digital Formats
April 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Cherished memories deserve special care and preserving them for future generations is essential. We invite you to join us on April 18th, 2023, at 7:00 PM in the Fernandina Branch Library’s community room for an informative session on converting photographs, slides, and videos into digital formats that can be treasured for a lifetime.
Whether you’re looking to undertake the conversion process yourself or seeking reputable companies for assistance, understanding the basics of format and resolution is crucial. Our discussion will cover essential equipment for do-it-yourself enthusiasts, outsourcing options, and anticipated costs.
It is widely recommended to maintain three copies of each digital file as a safeguard against unforeseen events such as fires, floods, thefts, or computer crashes. As such, we will explore the pros and cons of various storage solutions, including personal computers, USB flash drives, external backup devices, and cloud storage services.
Speaker: Jo Lichten
Jo loves life! In her professional life, Dr Jo is a PhD nutritionist and wellness expert who speaks at company meetings and national conferences, helping professionals keep their energy and productivity up through small shifts in the way they eat, sleep, move, and think. She spends her spare time traveling with her husband, practicing yoga on the beach, working on quilts, playing with her young grandkids, and preserving all those memories. She’s kept photo albums for 50 years. While originally using peel-and-stick albums, about 15 years ago she converted to stunning digital-to-print albums. When Jo’s dad passed, she and her brother-in-law worked to digitally preserve and organize the 14,000+ photos and slides he left behind – and then shared them with each of her eight siblings.
