Having your photos and videos converted to digital is great first step, yet not enough. A friend of mine once told me she had her photos digitized... "I used to have boxes of pictures I never looked at, now I have albums of DVD's I never look at." I want to make sure that is not your experience. I can walk you through step by step many ways to share and enjoy your photos. I also realize that after a week or two you may forget how to do something (or many things). I will continue to support you by addressing any questions you may have on tagging, sharing, upload/downloads or whatever help you may need. My goal is to make sure you are totally happy with the digital transfers as well as comfortable using available technology for viewing and sharing your memories.
