This online workshop provides in-depth training over multiple sessions on still image digitization of reflective objects and small transparencies. While various means of scanning are covered, demonstrations focus on flatbed and slide scanners. Topics include digital imaging concepts, equipment selection criteria, verification of specifications claimed by vendors, software selection and use, general considerations for archiving and publishing, digitization workflow, project planning and project management.
Technical demonstrations include setting colour profiles, image capture, metadata inspection and post processing. Workshop participants are encouraged to follow along with demonstrations using their own equipment or to practise at their own pace between sessions. Exercises, activities and case studies not requiring special equipment will also be included throughout the workshop.
