First a humblebrag for J.D. Biersdorfer who has been answering technology questions for The New York Times for 20 years and is an 8-time author (co-order), including the widely popular 11th edition of “iPod: The Missing Manual.”
J.D. is also co-host of the Pop | Tech | Jam podcast.
In this issue of Tech Tip, J.D. writes a timely report on how to preserve your pictures. In a year when billions of irreplaceable photographs were destroyed from the ravages of natural disasters, and because this keeps happening, we hope many will add this to their to-do list.
Excerpt: If the march of time is eroding your personal picture archive, give your beloved images new life.
If you see your family pictures starting to fade away in their shoe boxes, crumbling photo albums or moldering slide carousels, fear not. There are easy ways to save your valuable images — and maybe even make them better.
Shipping them off to a professional scanning company for digital conversion and retouching is one easy approach. Services like Memories Renewed, DigMyPics and ScanMyPhotos are easily found on the web and do fine work.[Courtesy of The New York Times, Dec 19, 2018]
