SEPTEMBER

General Meeting: Photo Recovery Workshop, September 15, 2015, Tuesday, 6pm, Margie Edinger Room, presented by Jim Hodges. The presentation is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served.

Jim Hodges will demonstrate how faded and damaged photographs can be scanned and recovered. You may bring old photographs, and Jim will bring some of his own. In about ten minutes, they can be turned into pretty good images. If you donít get them scanned soon, they will get worse especially if you do not know how to archive them. Once you have a good digital copy, it is easy to send copies to relatives and archives for safe keeping. Jim has had a 45-year career with the Stanford Research Institute. He has travelled to many areas around the globe in his work and often used photography.
