Michael Stecker at:
our 1957 class photos
High resolution (almost 4000
pixels, long axis) images of our three 1957 class photos are now available
Regarding photos of
the reunion from digital cameras
Please send me the original full resolution images
as email attachments
at minimum size of 1800 pixels (long axis) or larger if possible.
Either high grade JPEG (8 - 10) or Tiff files are acceptable. Please
note that my email has a limit of 20 MB per message/photo. You can
also place the files on your website for download if you like. If
you would like to "snailmail" me a CD or DVD with the images instead,
please email me for my mailing address.
Kindly identify who is in each photo,
date, location and write any comments you would like printed in the caption.
Regarding photos of the reunion from film cameras
Please have your negatives or slides scanned in
a film scanner and send the full resolution images to me.
from the past
Old photos of you, family (siblings,
grandchildren, family portrait), Hampton or Mumford Schools and
neighborhood are encouraged and will be used on this website. It is
best to get as close to the original as possible. This means digital
film scans of the original negatives or slides. However, most of us
only have prints which should be scanned in a flatbed scanner. You
can use your own scanner (e.g. Canon, Microtek, Epson or BenQ usually cost
about $90 - $300) or you can have a professional scan done from a digital
service, camera store or Kinko's.
For 8 X 10 inch or larger prints I suggest flatbed scans at 300 - 400 dpi
resolution, 24 bit RGB color and output as a TIFF file. For smaller
prints like snap-shots, I usually scan at a higher 600 dpi resolution.
Please do not make low resolution scans of these priceless photos!!
Also, if the photo is damaged it should still be scanned and sent in as I
sometimes can repair them digitally with Adobe Photoshop.
