About Digital Imaging

Can you digitize anything?

Yes. There are two ways you can do this job:

a) Scanning: is the most accurate way to digitize your piece, but it’s limited by the size of the scanner bed. Only pieces that are 24”x36” or smaller can be digitized this way.

b) Photographing: applies when the piece is too large for the scanner, more than 24”x36”, or 3D. We only use a 4x5 camera because we consider is the only format that gives us the detail and quality needed for reproduction.

There are limitations in the way that color is translated to digital. The following conditions are not good for reproduction:

a) Shiny surfaces, like glossy varnishes, especially used on oil paintings.

b) Dark and neutral colors.

c) Metallic colors won’t reproduce at all.

d) Very saturated colors, especially in the red family.
