The organizing committee - thanks to all - should set an example by adding pictures to their profiles.

If I can figure out how to scan them I will!

Even though I'm not an organizer, I've taken Ollie's advice and posted every digitized photo I could find. All the people in the photos are graduates of NHS except for my father and my husband Terry.

If you don't like to mess with scanning photos, a much quicker way, at least for me, is to photograph them.
1. You need diffuse light, not surrounded by a bright color (which will affect the color of the result.)
2. You need to be careful to position the photo and camera so no really bad glare streaks appear. It helps to flatten the photo with a piece of glass, like the glass in a photo frame.
3. You need to hold the camera steady.
Here are a couple of photos taken on my kitchen counter. I did sharpen them and then lighten them a little, but they were passable even before that. I didn't crop them, so that you could see one is under glass and the other is not. They won't win any prizes for technical perfection, but you can see who the peopole are.
Hoping to see some photos on the NHS website ...

I tried to post photos here ... and then links, but I couldn't make either option work, so I'll post them on my profile page. - A

I copy pictures and pages from books often with my digital camera. I keep the camera set to a low resolution that still permits some editing. I usually crop and resize with the goal of keeping the smallest acceptable KB image, usually around 100 or so for color. MS Picture Manager or Photo Gallery are fine for this. If I print color it's on a 4X6 with tab. I know KBs don't cost anything but like air, it's free until you have to move it.

Taking pictures of actual photographs can be dicey - as Anne said, it's difficult to avoid glare.  I have a 4-in-one, fax/scanner,copy/printer that I use to scan photos.  All the recent photos are digital so it's easy to download into my computer.  Most drug stores with photo counters will digitize photos for you for a nominal fee and download to a flash drive or CD.  If you don't have a scanner, that may be your best option.  You don't have to invest in PhotoShop to do minor corrections/cropping - the Microsoft picture editor does a pretty good job, although the Kodak software that came with my camera is much better - not up to PhotoShop standards but quite adaquate for removing red eye or blemishes and is very user-friendly.

Guess who just called me back? Freddie Theiler! He's e-mailing his info and I will do the appropriate thing with it.

Thank you Doug, Lorraine and all the Committee members for a great reunion weekend.  Everything turned out great.

A special thanks to Ken Perdergast, Lorraine and George Waters for their hospitality on Wednesday and Thursday.  I had a great time.
