Logan FamilySearch Library has created an area where you can work with equipment consisting of a computer, scanner, printer and specialized software. With these resources you have the ability to:

  • Scan photos and transfer them to a flash drive or to a DVD. You can also make printed copies.Use the software to edit, enhance, correct, add to, or delete unwanted material from a photo-graph. Spots, scratches, creases, faded colors and other defects can be easily corrected.
  • Scan slides or negatives and print them on photo paper, or transfer them to your flash drive or DVD.
  • Compose flyers, posters or other documents using the art and photo editing software.
  • Create collages of photos and create photo albums. It is also possible to create different artistic effects on your photos such as borders, swirls, reflections and textures to name just a few. New photographs can also be "aged" by converting color photos to sepia, or black and white images.
  • Convert your photo files from one format to another ie. tiff to jpeg or visa versa.

Don't worry if you are not sure how to do all of this, there are members of the library staff who are trained in the use of this equipment, and they would be happy to help you!
