Digitizing Your Photos with Your Camera and Lightroom
Digitize Your History Now. Slides and negatives are losing color. Albums and drawers are stuffed with fading prints and fragile newspaper clippings. As you try to sort and identify what you’ve got, the clock is ticking on the institutional memory of families, corporations and historians. All the history and heritage you want to preserve are in front of you waiting to be dealt with.
You want a solution that is accurate and manageable. You don’t want to spin your wheels trying to figure it out how to best light, shoot and track all the assets you’ve got in front of you.
And, you want it economical and efficient. In the end, you want to have peace of mind that your treasured photos and objects are captured and preserved for the future.
Peter Krogh's newest book provides answers and guidance on how to achieve all of the above.
Plan, Scan and Preserve
Digitizing Your Photos with Your Camera and Lightroom presents a comprehensive step-by-step guide for equipment selection, photo preparation, scanning workflow, tagging, curation and digital photo management. Drawing on the principles used by museums and institutions, the book presents a method that is within reach of millions of photographers, whether they are family historians, corporate collection managers, or professional archivists.
The Time to Digitize is Now
The digital camera has come of age as the preferred method for digitizing photos, film and documents. Families, companies and institutions can now make digital archives of important photos at unprecedented scale, speed and cost. These new digital archives will help you learn and share your history, and preserve it for the future.
Over the last decade, the digital camera has steadily become the scanning tool of choice for some of the most trusted image collections worldwide. It is used by institutions like the Library of Congress, the National Archives, as well as major museums and collections.
Faster, Better, Cheaper - Really!
Fast, high-quality scanning allows you to digitize entire collections at a fraction of the cost of older methods. Camera scanning can be done on-site, with any of the millions of high-quality digital cameras already in use by people and institutions. For many, the only additional purchases may be a modest outlay for a macro lens or copystand.
