Photographic transparencies range from individual frames to short strips to reels of 100 feet and longer. The glass plates of the 19th century gave way to plastic films in the 20th century. Dimensions became more standardized, and the stability and longevity of film bases improved over the decades. Still, a film collection spanning even a few years may include several different formats.
Digitizing a photographic collection poses different challenges and requires different decisions than a collection of manuscripts or newspapers. So, where do you start?
Backstage Library Works presents:
A Positive Approach to Digitizing Negatives
(And Other Transmissive Film Formats)
In this webinar, Backstage's Alicia Sell will guide you through a range of film formats and offer suggestions on what you need to consider to get the best results when digitizing your materials.
Alicia will be joined in the discussion by team members Andreas Otto and Mike Cabreza, who will lend their expertise on digitization and photographic technologies.
