PHOTO RESTORATION, DIGITZATION AND SORTING FOR A GENEALOGISTMay 11, 2020
OPEN POSITION: DOMAIN BROKER ON FREELANCE BASISMay 29, 2020
Recently, we got contacted by a retired person who needed support in bringing some sort of Order into his photos & videos. After discussing the project, we got to know, what he needed. We had to support him in moving files from the various drives, HDDs, external-HDDs, SD, Micro-SD, Compact Flash, Negative, positives and dias. Hence that call came during the COVID-19 pandemic time, we decided to do this remotely.
We started by, having our client inserting for storage media after the other into his computer and we started sorting it with him. He told us which vacation or event it was and we moved it to the new directory. The new sorting was as follows: “PHOTOS->YEAR->EVENT” Under YEAR, we added a new folder for each Event. This process took days since he had so many double files, just with different naming, etc. Once sorted everything into the respective folders, we started to have the famous Daminion Server to find which files are their several times to remove them. Next, we started to batch rename the files by this pattern: “EVENT_YEAR_(X).EXTENSION”. Once this task was done, we started to attach the prior ordered backup drive and did a complete backup of the files.
Next, it was time to properly tag the files inside Daminion Server. We showed our client, how to tag: places, persons, events, copyrights, geotags and much more, we let our client work on his database before reconnecting to him after one week to make the next backup. He had further tasks for us. He now needed help in working with Adobe Photoshop, Photomatix, AndreaMosaic and a Software to order photo books. We now started to show our client, how he can edit photos, do HDR-Photos and how to create Photobooks.
This was a long yet interesting and fun task. Especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic, it felt good to help our client to use the time. He already introduced friends of him to get our help.
