Photos capture our stories and those of family and friends who lived before us. They give insights into the world of our ancestors.
But our photo collection can be overwhelming. Many of us have hundreds if not thousands of photos, and most are decades old. So where do we start? Join Kathy Nielsen as she shares tips on identifying, organizing and restoring old photos. She will introduce you to Restore, a new and easy photo editing application. Don’t give up on your precious memories. There is hope!
