A "must-watch" to help clients impacted by a disaster
by Nancy McFarland
Kathy Stone has generously shared her extensive experience and knowledge in this subject! I live in California where many clients have been impacted by the fires this year. Their photos that did survive the fire are water damaged from efforts to save lives and property. After watching this course, I feel better prepared to help my clients assess their water/fire damaged collections.

Thank you for the detail that you included in the course. It is a big job for sure. I hope that I am able to help a client with this situation, but it is one that I hope I don't have to do. Thanks again.
Helpful tips, especially when dealing with large collections that are damaged
by Brittany Smith
The course was useful and clear; especially useful when dealing with a large collection that is damaged.
It would have been nice if is was described how to use PEC-12 or Photoflo to clean photographic materials and preventing water spots upon drying and the use of HEPA filters in the area for personal protection, but also to increase airflow to the area and reduce the amount of dust in the workspace.

This is a great resource. There was a lot of information in the videos, which were short and to the point.

I love old photos but like most folks have not done what I should to be sure they are cared for and organized. And since I live in hurricane country, I knew as I started organizing them, that I needed to have a better understanding of what would be entailed should they be damaged. This course was very helpful and a great introduction. I came away with a good understanding of the process and a clear understanding that the best way to preserve these memories is to scan and organize photos before any damage and those photos that are the most precious be stored where the chance of water damage is very minimal. Thank you Kathy.

I was able to walk through the process with Kathy step by step and hope I am prepared if I ever have to do this.
Concise, precise, and invaluable
by Lisa Brueggemann
Kathy's course was tremendously helpful. Thank you for providing such precise direction.
In my 2 1/2 years as an organizer, I've not had an occasion to work with water-damaged photos, however, I have had countless occasions to remove photos stuck to the frames/glass where they have lived for unknown years. I've never had the courage to soak the stuck photos in water, but I now have the knowledge (and courage) to give it a try (of course after I've scanned it first!)

So detailed and full of great information! Thank you
Working With Damaged Photos
by Mollie Wasserman
Great Course! In about an hour, I learned so much that will not only help me in volunteering with disasters, but also provides a great knowledge base that I can offer clients that get flooded basements or leaky pipes. Thanks so much Kathy!
Thorough, informative, and engaging!
by Chelsey Young
This was an incredible - and timely! - course. Kathy's thorough base of knowledge is so evident in all the helpful tips and step-by-step instructions that she provides. It would never have occurred to me that you could freeze water-damaged photos to halt the damage until you can get to the point where you can attempt to salvage them! Genius. Thank you so much Kathy - I can't wait to re-watch and take extensive notes that I'm sure I'll be referencing soon.
Thorough, easy to follow instructions!
