HCGS Meeting 8 Sep 2012 "Digital Images: Scan, Edit, Preserve"

        The meeting of the Honolulu County Genealogical Society of Sep 8th 2012 met at the Manoa Gardens Community Room, at 9 am.  Donna Wendt presented the main topic concerning photo use in genealogy, the technical aspects. An audio/visual presentation entitled "Digital Images: Scanning, Editing and Preserving Your Photos"  was shown from a Legacy Webinar by Geoff Rasmussen.  In addition, two types of scanners were exhibited:  the "ImageBox Standalone" for slides and film strips, and the "FlipPal Mobile Scanner" for large items, to take to libraries, and for travel.  Digital cameras with a tripod can also be used to take excellent photo images of heirlooms or documents.  Photo editing software was discussed including PhotoShop Elements and the free Paint.Net.
