As a seasoned user of the more traditional scanning methods, I have been reluctant to make the leap to camera scanning. Years of built-up expertise and fear of the unknown were big roadblocks, but with Adam’s course I’ve been able to quickly overcome those concerns and realize greater quality, consistency, and profitability in my business, with very little growing pain.

Another great course from Adam at Chaos to Memories
by Trish Masters-Cain
I'm a certified photo manager and have scanned tens of thousands of pictures on flatbed and high-speed scanners. The process is tedious and I knew I could get better results with camera scanning. This is the third course I've taken with Adam and, as usual, he didn't disappoint! He explains things in plain language and gives you invaluable tips based on his own experience. Most importantly, you can implement what he teaches right away. The same day I completed the course, I scanned nearly 300 pictures! Thanks, Adam!
