Vivid-Pix Reunions magazine Vivid-Pix new developments include a partnership to investigate the use of photography in reminiscence therapy
With UK regulations looking to lift in the coming months, many of us will be looking forward to family reunions. Read on to learn about the recent acquisition of Reunions magazine by Vivid-Pix, and discover how it complements the family history photo digitisation scene

 Vivid-Pix’s recent acquisition of Reunions magazine will help family, class alumni, and military reunion participants & planners, and bring another angle to the events. Reunions provides indepth planning advice for reunion organisers, and listings of upcoming reunions on the online magazine website: The Vivid-Pix patented image improvement software has been developed to help people protect their family photos and documentation - with software to help streamline the digitisation and restoration of family collections. With photos, memories and reunions going hand in hand, it is felt that the two businesses will serve to complement each other well.

Edith Wagner, editor and founder of Reunions, said, ‘We are delighted to be able to continue our long service of information, inspiration and ideas to reunions and reunion planners... Vivid-Pix ... services are of great interest to our readers who are always looking for new ways to celebrate.' Rick Voight, CEO, Vivid-Pix, adds: 'Reunions are a great way to stay connected with family and friends. These events often include "a journey down memory lane". Photos provide the best way to relive these journeys and reminisce.'

Reunions has historically concentrated on get-togethers in the United States of America, and reunions have tended to be organised by classes, families or military units or colleagues. However the guidance and ideas are applicable to all – whether gathering virtually or in person.
