WOW! - great photo's - wondering how they colorized them, i.e. by hand or computerized.
Old black-and-white photos can become more impressive when color is added. Some great examples of that may be found on the LiveLeak web site. The pictures vary from the U.S. Civil War through the 1930s and show what life was like in those days. These were black and white photos that have since been colorized by computer enhancement. You can see these haunting photographs at http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=d6d9d5385aee or by clicking on the vid...

I'm glad u made this community Denise - I work at our local Historical Soc. & am a Bd. member of the county Genealogical Soc. I've scanned, photographed several thousand items - Photographs are stored in Lightroom and paper documents go to Evernote Premium. I am also talking with a local person for building a database for both societies. Last week & this one I'm working on my personal genealogy and hopefully get it into Wikitree.
I'm looking forward to learning from this group - Thanks a bunch for starting it.

Patricia - I can't say enough good about Lightroom - It does have some learning curves to it to get the most out of it. I started right out of the box and now, as I am learning, I am going back and correcting some of my 'oops'. The one thing I'll mention is once your photo's are in LR, do not move them to another area, i.e. folder, hd-drive, etc. although there is a 'work-around' if one does move them, it's something to try and Not do. It's very 'keyboard' freindly and fast. - once tagged, no matter where they are at. Adobe has a free full version download to try. (mine was availble for 30 days, so I would think the same is true now.) I have to mention I get No compensation in anyway for talking about LR, I just like it and want others to know about it. - Hope this helps.
