Learn the best ways of scanning to preserve your heritage photos, slides, and negatives, and the best practices to maximize the digital data you capture for use in genealogical applications, charts, and reports, in scrapbooks and photo books, and for sharing these precious resources with your family members. Be the best guardian of your original photos and documents, and your family will thank you!
