I was just going through old photos and found a few Kodak Photo CDs from some of EF's first runs. The Kodak CDs were supposed to be an archival way to store digital images that had been converted from slide film originals, scanned by a professional lab, and burned to gold CDs that were supposed to last forever...

Well 15 years later the file format used is no longer supported by Photoshop so I had to find a converter. I'm attaching the first files I converted with the freeware version of the software. I'm going to purchase it so I can convert the rest without the watermark.

Wow! That looks new!
 






What a fun trip! Haven't been back to Moab in years, should hit it up sometime, to go mountain biking or something if nothing else... since I no longer have off-road capabilities :)
Interestingly enough I was reading something a few weeks ago from some google executive who said that he felt that people should still be printing things - their photos, documents, etc. because of issues like this, where formats get obsolete too quickly and convertors may not always be available... I'm not so sure, since you can still convert home videos made in the 40s and 50s if you really want to... but I can see his point... But then again the paperless part of me competely disagrees :).
 






Wow, before the pumpkin was the pumpkin. keep them coming.

Colin it was Rick. He was up above on Hells Revenge and took those photos; I've got one almost like it that he took of me. So good that I framed it and it's hanging on the wall in my study :)
 






A few more oldies...
