Ongoing Events
  • The Trafalgar Township Historical Society holds scanning days every other month during our open house and at our fall fair in September. The scanning project has so far recorded more than 1,000 family and historic photos from Trafalgar Township.

    Scanning Instructions

    Naming your images: We use a particular file naming convention so before you begin your scanning work, please contact TTHS who will provide more information about assigning the correct names to each image.

    Scanning your photos: In an effort to create archival quality versions of original images, it is necessary to use the following settings when scanning photographs on any scanner:
    1. 600 dpi resolution
    2. Photograph setting (as opposed to text, etc.)
    3. Full colour (While many photographs being scanned are in black and white, full colour allows us to be true to the original's colouring and nuances.
    4. Save image as a TIFF with no compression


    Sending images to TTHS: Due to the size of these images, it is best to save them onto DVD-RW, but CD-RW are a consideration depending on the age and availability of the equipment with which you are working. They can then be mailed to TTHS c/o 97 Roxton Rd Oakville On L6H 6V3. Do not attempt to email these files, as their large size will cause significant difficulties with your computer and/or your e-mail provider.
