free software for photo recovery - ioSafe Solo
ioSafe Solo 1.5 TB Fireproof and Waterproof External Hard Drive with 1 Year Data Recovery Service SL1500GBUSB20 (Silver)
ioSafe Solo 1.5 TB  Fireproof and Waterproof External Hard Drive with 1 Year Data Recovery Service SL1500GBUSB20 (Silver)
Like an aircraft black box for your digital data, the ioSafe Solo is the world's first, high capacity, fireproof & waterproof external hard drive. Using a simple USB 2.0 interface, the ioSafe Solo works with your PC or Mac just like any other USB external hard drive. Compatible with almost all backup programs that work with external hard drives. A combination of patented and patent pending ioSafe technologies work to allow for airflow cooling during normal operation yet protect the data from fire and floods. FloSafe vents are open during normal operation. Active cooling is provided by a near silent fan that drives air through the FloSafe vents. During a fire event, the patented FloSafe vents automatically close to prevent extreme outside heat from damaging the hard disk inside the enclosure. DataCast is our proprietary endothermic insulation that vaporizes embedded water molecules during a fire and works hard to protect the inner hard drive from damage even though the outside temperatures spike to over 1500°F. HydroSafe is our patent water protection. It consists of a heat conductive water barrier membrane that surrounds the drive. HydroSafe allows the heat created by the drive during normal operation to dissipate yet protects the drive from damage even when completely submerged in fresh water, salt water, and/or muddy water! Included with the ioSafe Solo is an unprecedented $1000 Disaster Recovery Service. This is a "no questions asked", one time use policy. Certain limitations apply.

Photo Restoration - Damage Repair
Photo Restoration - Damage Repair
This is about the hardest task when it comes to photo restoration.
Once a photographic print gets a crack or a crease in it, the image data contained in that area becomes lost forever, so that's where you need an artists eye, and the ability to reconstruct entire areas of the photo, either from scratch or by cloning other similar areas.
In this example, the vertical crack runs right up the middle of the photo, and much to my dismay, spreads out into a horisontal crack right across my grandmothers face.
Did I mention that faces are really hard to construct from scratch?
Faces are a subtle blend of shadows and tones that combine to create a recognisable 3 dimensional shape. As faces are a deeply rooted thing in the human psyche (we are mentally pre-disposd to see faces in all manner of everyday objects), the chances of messing up are multiplied exponentially. Get so much as a couple of pixels in the wrong place, and the subject starts to look a little deformed.
This is a re-attempt at this picture. I did it around 10 years ago, and was never entirely happy with the results, so I'm trying it again now to see if I can do a better job.
I'm not 100% certain if I did, but I'm going to get it printed anyway.

day 296 alternate (placeholder) Hair!
I saw Hair in Central Park at the Delacorte Theater as part of the Public Theater's "Shakespeare in the Park" The show was AWESOME, and FREE! I stood on the "virtual line" three days in a row and this time, I got tickets (to the amazement of my friend and former coworker Ryan, who's now the Theater Manager) - and I got to see another former coworker perform in the show - too cool! I snapped some photos of me with the program (and my ridiculously long hair over the program and arranged in a variety of ways, and then went to bed. When I woke up this morning and tried to upload them, they were nowhere to be found! So I've run 3 different recovery programs, and the only one that found the files is a trial version, and I'm not entirely sure I want to pay for the full version to recover somewhat crappy photos, just for the sake of "not missing a day." So here's proof that I took pictures last night... hopefully I'll be able to find a way to replace this with some sort of actual photo of me.

On Gratitude: The Journey: A Photo Recovery Book Part 8
On Gratitude is the adventures of a schizophrenic recovering from tobacco who, ironically, is a chemical dependency counselor. This photo recovery book playfully works with recovery issues like unemployment, thinking errors, and addiction and shows that gratitude and humor, despite a psychiatric disability, are important in challenging the addictive logic of coyote, a powerful representation of addiction that can pull the rug out from underneath you when you are least expecting it. Jean uses a coyote stuffed animal with clients to represent the addictive beliefs and logic coyote represents to her. She has another doll that represents honesty and sobriety or "smobriety" (from cigarettes). When people want the cigarette or drink they can't refuse-that is coyote's logic and reasoning. In her own journey she asks, "what is the nature of that logic-what does the logic need and what is it hungry for-is there a different way to get that need met?" She challenges her own thinking errors with respect to cigarettes. Nicotine is a cunning, baffling and powerful logic. She calls that addiction coyote. Jean Marie Manthei is in recovery from tobacco for six years. She has worked as a chemical dependency counselor in Colorado Springs since 1993. Jean was motivated to write this book to experience more positive outcomes. The pro-social aspect was that perhaps others would be inspired. There are positive outcomes-you have to create them.
