How to Organize and Protect your Photos in a Post-Film World

Class on preserving your images at the Castro Valley Library Sept. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m.


By the Castro Valley Library

When cameras used film and photographs were delivered in hardcopy form, considering how to preserve them was a simple matter. Today, with so many people storing pictures on their cameras and cell phones, preserving those images is all too often an afterthought. The potential of losing the entire photographic history of a young family is a possibility realized far too often.

We’ll go over the modern-day challenges and provide options and solutions to this new and very vulnerable medium for documenting life’s important moments. We cover types of storage, cataloging, and organizing your images, backup and archiving, cloud storage options, printing, creating books and many other methods of preserving images on something not dependent upon any technology or device.

The workshop, held at the Sept. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m., will be conducted by local photography professionals James Adams, owner of Exclusive Productions, and Russell Foote, owner of Russell Foote Photography.
