Photo Retouching & Restoration For Dummies

Photo Retouching & Restoration For Dummies - Julie Adair King This was mostly about using Photoshop or a comparable program for retouching photographs, which was not my interest at the time. However, there were a couple of chapters on preserving and sharing photos. -- Consider using professional printing options, rather than drugstore or home printing for prints you want to archive.Ways to protect:1. Scan important pictures now.2. Work on copies, not originals.3. Save in a lossless format (tiff, not jpeg and gif). Save in jpeg and gif only after you're done editing, and only if you want to use the picture for some purpose that requires one of these formats. 3. Archive images on CD. 4. Catalog your image files. (ThumbsPlus from Cerious, or ACDSee from ACD Systems)5. Print on archival paper.6. Protect prints from the environment. Frame and display in a low humidity environment. The back of the frame should be sealed so that moisture and other contaminants can't get in. Or use archival boxes or albums. Do not store in basements, attics, garages. Check lightimpressions.com for photo supplies. 7. Use a matte with framed images. The matte should be archival, acid-free. Use archival tape to attach the edges of the photo to the matte, not glue. 8. Display photos out of direct light.9. Keep your fingers off. Use gloves.
