It’s been a couple of years since I’ve checked in with Daniel Horowitz, of My Heritage.com. We talked about instant discoveries, what happens when information is uploaded in a different language, and how you can use watermarks on your images. Daniel shares a big announcement about family photographs. The new tool developed out of a company-wide hackathon to develop new features.
For a demonstration of how to use instant discoveries, click the link in the show notes for Episode 11 https://maureentaylor.com/ask-maureen-episode-11-heritage-photo-discoveries/
Need help with your photographs, contact me for a photo consult. I’d love to help. By the way, I offer discounts for larger batches of images. Let’s save some family photographs together.
