NEW MEMBER BENEFIT – Vivid-Pix RESTORE software discount
We’d been hearing about this software, so when Society President Steve Fulton had a chance to talk to Vivid-Pix co-founder Rick Voight at the FGS Conference in Washington DC in August, he was interested to learn more. Since then, we’ve had further conversations with Rick, and a number of our members have tried used his RESTORE photo software. The verdict – we like it!
We are always on the lookout for opportunities for our members, and in our discussions with Rick we learned that he is a strong supporter of genealogical societies, and he offered a 20% saving off their regular price for members of Ontario Ancestors. Even better – he offers a no-risk, no credit card, free trial! Here are the details!
Click on this link to Try and/or Buy (Vivid-Pix provides a 10 free fix trial, with no credit card required). If you decide to purchase, you save 20% (that’s a US $10 saving off the regular US $49.99 retail price) (the discount is given automatically in the cart).
Not only do we recommend Vivid-Pix and think this is a great price, but by buying Vivid-Pix, you will also be supporting Ontario Ancestors – Not only do you get a 20% discount, but Vivid-Pix will pay a 20% commission to the Society! Vivid-Pix calls this their Genealogical Society Program (Do Well, Doing Good)
Vivid-Pix has been in business for 7 years. Rick and Randy, the company founders, are ex-Kodakers. Their first software (and first patent) improves SCUBA/underwater photos. 3 years ago, they launched RESTORE: using artificial intelligence RESTORE automatically improves faded images (second patent, received 2/2019). They continuously improve the software and provide free updates as they learn of features that are helpful to genealogists (like expanding on photo improvement they added document/record improvement, have created easy ways to add metadata/image tags, and document transcription).
