You Will Never Look at Your Old Photos the Same Way Again!
Step into the 21st century with your photo identification! Every bit of a photograph – the thickness, the edges, the shape, and yes, even the image, can help you identify it. It’s not only what you look at in a photo, it’s how you look at it that counts. Clues lurk in the most unusual places, you just have to find them. Even the most mundane items– the weather, the direction of traffic on a street, can be the clue that can solve a photo-mystery. After attending this talk, you will never look at your old photos the same way again!
