On Monday, 9 April 2018, the subject of the Oxfordshire Family History Society meeting will be ‘Fixing Photos’, with the talk given by Alan Simpson.
Alan says he will demonstrate some of the techniques you can use to enhance the visual appearance of damaged and faded old photographs. It will be an interactive session so if anyone cares to bring along an old photograph or two, Alan is prepared to rise to the challenge and will have a scanner and camera to hand. Don’t expect miracles though!. If information is completely lost from the original it cannot be recovered but what does remain can often be shown to much better effect, as evidence this snap of a Sutton family gathering in Yorkshire taken around 1919.
Alan is the Chairman of the OFHS computer group panel, and, as well, he carries out searches for the Society’s Search Services. He’s also our Monumental Inscriptions Coordinator.
We meet at the Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, OX5 1AB, with the meeting starting at 7:30pm. Doors open at 7:15pm, when there will be a warm welcome for all.
