Project: Exist in Images

Exist in Images is my own preservation service for legacy photographs and other analog media. I convert photos, negatives, slides, reels, or tapes to high-resolution digital formats for archival and reproduction purposes. I always include low-resolution versions for easy browsing and sharing online. 

If the client desires, I really enjoy making color corrections, repairing damaged images, and assembling video slideshows that tell a story about an individual, family, or event.

Photo Digitization and Restoration

Web Design

I developed the Exist in Images website with a customized WordPress theme, and used my own family photo collection to fill out the design. 

Print Design

I used the general website design and assets to create a matching trifold print brochure.

Social Media

As I work on archiving my personal collection, I’ve enjoyed sharing my discoveries, processes and advice on social media.

Negatives of various sizes on a light table, and one held by a hand in a white cotton glove.

Negatives are no problem… I go through them with a light box to decide which ones will get loaded into the scanner frame.

Video Portraits

Images and video can be assembled into slideshow videos with licensed music, so families can share their stories over social media.
