MATTHEWS, NC (WBTV) - Stan Schmitt is one half of the tech savviest couple at Plantation Estates Retirement community. At 83, Stan has taken thousands of pictures of wildlife. Sitting right next to him, his 80 year old wife Gerry makes those pictures perfect.

"Color curves, I like to work with color curves," says Gerry as she manipulates one of Stan's photos in Photoshop.

Gerry is known around the community for her extensive work in photo correction and restoration. She has her own website, where old worn out memories are made new again. The two sit side by side and use their computers to reach out to the world.

"Gerry and I both communicate with the family on the computer and have for years," said Stan.

Gerry even has Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr accounts. "All the young people are using it so why not granny," said Gerry

From the era of analog, comes two people more than happy to be all digital.
