Step one starts here -- Photo Organization suggestions.

by High Desert Frameworks!

We previously posted topics about digital image and photo print organization and now comes:  The six steps to photo organization as told by Cathi Nelsona Houzz Contributor and founder of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers. 

Got Boxes of Printed Photos? 6 Tips on Getting Organized

Read her full story here:  You Can Do It: 6 Steps to Organizing Your Loose Photos

Here at High Desert Frameworks, we feel the two most important steps are -- Find a workspace and digitize/back up.  For many of us, a project of this nature isn't going to get done in a weekend.  Find a workspace that you can start, stop and restart your project until completed.  Nothing is worse than putting a project to bed before it is completed.  Due to the fact that we scan photo's and have recently added our "General Purpose Photo Scanning" service to our scanning line up we truly appreciate how important it is to scan and back up your data!  Scanning / digitizing your photos allow you to share them via social media, facebook and email.  You can also restore, enlarge and ehnance your images then custom frame!  What a fun way to bring back memories to you and other members of your family.  

It's never too late to start preserving your memories for a lifetime.  Don't wait until it is overwhelming.  If you feel like you have a "ton" of photo's -- take it easy and use the 6 steps as outlined in Cathi's article.  After all -- Just take one photo at time and it will get done!

So Scan You! Suggestions from the experts. Slide, negative and film preservation and duplication

by High Desert Frameworks!

Have you wanted to ask the following burning questions?  

Q. How do I preserve my digital photo library, with the photos at full resolution? Is an online database better than on the computer’s hard drive? 

Vintage Slide Projector - Circa 1950's

Vintage Slide Projector - Circa 1950's

Q. What can you do with slides? Many years of my wonderful family photos are only on slides. Can I even get them printed? How do I preserve them? 

Q. I have numerous family photo albums dating to the early 20th century. How can I best scan and preserve these digitally? Should I still keep the originals after digitizing - or is it OK to discard them?

Q. My question is how to best preserve negatives from the photos my father took during WWII. They are uncut and have been stored rolled up and in either cardboard sleeves or old film canisters. I had the images scanned by a local photo store a few years ago and the film is still pliant and uncracked.

Answer

A whole bunch of people already asked the questions for you.  Here is just one answer from a wonderful NY Times article on Archiving and Preserving your Family History.  The article also addresses movie film (which we do not duplicate) and provides some great independent links to archival and storage options+++.  Most definitely worth the read! 

Here is just one answer from Bertram Lyons, an archivist at the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress in Washington.

"Look for vendors who offer more than just JPEG deliverables. At the very least, if you are going to pay to have your slides or prints scanned, make sure the vendor delivers an uncompressed file (e.g., TIFF), and request at least a resolution that yields 6,000 pixels across the longest dimension of the image. For a 10- x 7-inch print, that would be 600 ppi (pixels per inch). This will ensure high-quality viewing and printing options for future uses."  Source:   Tips on Archiving Family History (part 2) [ http://goo.gl/AMlzIR ].

AND ...
Just in case you were wondering.

High Desert Frameworks scanning solutions and our philosophy are based on providing the best possible duplication, at the highest resolution that allows for future options.  High Desert Frameworks utilizes two, top of the line professional Epson art and film scanners to produce stunning results for our clients.  We scan your photo, 35mm slides and film negatives, 110mm, 120mm, 126mm, 4x5 and medium/large format negatives up to 6000ppi, clean them up, color correct / restore if needed and then provide them to you in a digital format. When requested, files are provided to you in both tiff and jpg file format.  A typically 35mm slide scanned at 6000ppi would easily provide a 24" x 24" digital print and possibly larger depending on the original photo quality.
