The Digital Family Archive, Macintosh Edition by Jim Heid
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


You've got a computer, and use it regularly. You've tossed the VCR for a DVD player. You use a digital camera and maybe even have an iPod and/or a PDA. You've gone digital and are embracing this modern lifestyle wholeheartedly. Then why are your family archives still in the dust? This graphically rich, four-color guide will show you how to convert your cache of old family photographs, albums, and slides; home movies; music; and more to modern digital formats so that you can permanently archive them to reliable storage media. With this book, learn how to digitally archive memorabilia using easily accessible software tools along with a scanner, digital camera, and other inexpensive peripheral devices, and how to easily and creatively work with still and moving images, sound, and graphics to produce printed and bound albums, interactive DVDs (even videotapes), and more!
