In the wee hours Sunday morning, I finished scanning Elma’s flats. 1500+ scans, a little over 30GB of storage, and many, many hours have been poured into this project… I am thrilled to have it complete. There’s still some post-production work to do — file naming, and eventually sucking it all into Lightroom for managing — but the biggest part of the work is complete.
Now I can turn the attention of both scanners to Roaul’s slides, and try to get them finished over the next few weeks. You’d think that would be the end of the line for the big archival projects, but Mom’s still looms out there, along with a medium-sized batch from my grandmother, and a big ol’ batch of my images.
I think there’s about 4000 family images preserved through my work so far, and I figure there’s easily another 4000 in the images I mentioned above. Perhaps I can have all that done by the end of the year! 🙂 Now if I could just figure out how to put them on the web…..
