  • select a restoration expert to restore damaged photos, using airbrushing, digital manipulation or photographic enhancements
  • use photo identification techniques to answer the who, what, when, where and why of a picture
  • evaluate computer programs that offer organizational solutions
  • prepare for the future of photography, including electronic archives and family home pages
  • understand the legal aspects of family photography
  • take advantage of low-cost alternatives to traditional photo preservation techniques
Each chapter ends by providing answers to a series of frequently asked questions. You’ll also find special appendices for sources of family photographs, along with important addresses for conservators, magazines, suppliers, societies, organizations, restoration services, archival storage facilities, Web sites and more.

Don’t put off doing today what may be too late to do tomorrow. Preserve your family photographs now—and capture memories that will last a lifetime.
