Digital Imaging for MuseumsAlan B. Newman , Art Institute of Chicago, USA
Session: Digital Imaging
Museums are increasingly using digital imaging as a companion to and a replacement for conventional analogue photography. The uses of digital images include multimedia and web publishing, pre-press lithography, reference in collection management, conservation documentation and desktop video. Often a digital image can be enhanced to actually make the representation of the museum object more "realistic".
This workshop will explore the technical strategies of digitization for museum applications and present the various tools for image capture and quality evaluation.
