Genealogists use digital imaging technology every day with cameras, scanners, saving files, sharing records and so on. But what you do not know about it, can harm your digital treasures. This book fills the need for a comprehensive, easy-to-read guide, with step-by-step instructions and illustrations to learn how to digitize, organise, preserve, share, and backup your digital collections.

From the very first page you will notice that this book is much more than a boring instructional manual - it is full of real-life examples that not only teach you the right buttons to push, but it thoroughly explains how to get the most of your digital imaging experience. AND this book is written specifically for genealogists!

- The do-it-right-the-first-time techniques of scanning old documents, and snapping pictures with your digital camera.
- How to finally get organized so that you can locate any digital image in under a minute.
- Which file formats and file saving techniques to use to properly preserve your digital images.
