Episode 59: The Vivid-Pix Fix and a Contest

Vivid-pix Restore has a new tool for users.  You can attach metatag to your images. 

If you haven’t tried Vivid-Pix Restore, you’re missing the Vivid-pix fix. Basically you select an image to add it to the program and in seconds you see nine versions of your image. Pick the fix that seems right to you and save it. Your original will stay as it is, but you’ll also have the restored version as well.  Try it and see. Use vivid-pix.com/pd and try it for free. You can Improve the quality of your scanned pictures and documents. 

Metadata has a scary sound to it.  It’s not quite as technical as you might think.  Remember old fashioned library card catalogs? Where you could find what you wanted by looking things up by author, title, or subject.  I think of metadata that way. You can enter names, places, or subjects all to help you locate what you’re looking for in your image file collection. 

I’ll let my guest explain how all this works. We have an announcement. While on the call Rick and I cooked up a challenge.  Here’s how it goes. The Vivid Pix Fix Challenge. I set up a Facebook post and encourage people to add their before and after images. The one with the most likes wins a photo album from Vivid-pix.   

We’re celebrating Family History month with a give-away.  You’ll have until October 20th 11:59pm EST to vote.
