This workshop will give participants the opportunity to discover and
discuss the issues involved in putting images on the web, by actually
trying your hand at the process. Participants should each bring a couple
of slides and/or photos from their collections to scan and work on.
The hands-on process will begin with initial scanning using a slide
scanner and a flatbed scanner; colour correcting, editing, resolution
and file naming, using Abobe Photoshop 4.0; entering the image information
into a database; and putting the images on-line on a website. We will
discuss and demonstrate the issues of resolution (for archival and web
purposes); image quality and sizes for different monitors; resolution;
compression; and preparing images for the web.
