Once again, I have been sifting through copies which I made about 10 years ago. And, what I have discovered is that the paper copy image is fading. Most of the copies were printed on my home printer, but some were made on copy machines at the library or courthouse. It doesn’t seem to matter – the image is fading.

I am so glad that when I made a copy of an important family photo or document, I also saved it digitally on my computer, on my external hard drive, and a CD. So, now even though I have fading images, I can make new ones from my digital copy.

Something to think about.
