Photograph Restoration Class with Jeff Hamilton

November 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This free presentation delves into the important role of photo restoration in preserving family genealogy and history. It covers a range of tools and resources that can be utilized to safeguard family photos. While not a comprehensive “how-to” guide on restoring old photographs, the presentation provides an overview of many of the tools and techniques available today for those interested in photo restoration.

Advancements in photo editing software, including the integration of artificial intelligence, have expanded the capabilities available to hobbyists and beginners seeking to preserve their family history. Furthermore, many of these applications have become increasingly affordable with the evolution of photo editing software. Topics include:

  • History of photo restoration prior to digital editing
  • Overview of various photo editing applications suitable for photo restoration
  • Key tools/techniques utilized for restoring photos
  • Before and after examples
  • Equipment for scanning photos, slides, and negatives
  • Software for organizing photos that includes facial recognition and GPS locations
  • Inputting metadata into images
  • Questions and answer section

The presentation is delivered by Jeff Hamilton, the founder of EH LearnMedia, who combines his experience in business with his passion for photography and videography. His drive to document his family history rekindled his childhood hobby of photography and led to the desire to restore many old family photographs that he has inherited over time.
