    If you’re interested in analyzing the photo, it would be best not to ‘clean it up’ or restore it, but to look at it in as close to the original form as possible. I noticed you mentioned you were looking for ‘scars or birthmarks,’ for example. These would be wiped out my many photo editors if they were faint or mistaken for a blemish on the photo. The cleaned up versions are nice for home decoration or when detail is not important.

    A wonderfully practical webinar to help you delve deeply into each photo of people and buildings, to 1. identify the subjects, and 2. to add to their stories. Be sure to follow the chat, and the Q&A, as well as the excellent syllabus!

    Lisa’s approach to analyzing pictures and her methodology was great. The pictures that she showed and discussed made the presentation very interesting.

    As the family historian I have many photos to scan and share with other family members. This will help me explain what they are seeing. Thank you.
