Image quality control and photo technology challenges in cultural heritage digitization projects

In this series of articles, I will focus on the photo technology challenges of digitizing planar artefacts —paintings, drawings, prints, archival documents, maps, reflective photographs, i.e. paper images, and transmissive photographic material, i.e. negatives, slides, glass negatives, and also bound documents and books, because a reliable digital representation of all these objects is essential, everyone working in the cultural heritage scene benefits from the use of high-quality digital objects resulting from proper, professional digitisation.


  • I can help institutions and private collections to find their best workflows to meet international digitization standards, I can participate in the development of training sessions, also, I can consult and advise on how to control, optimise and improve their existing processes.

Digitization Services

  • We also digitize and photograph artefacts, we “scan” negatives, slides and paper images, but the method we use can produce higher quality digital copies of transparent or reflective originals in a fraction of the time of traditional flatbed scanning.
Please reach out to us if you want to know more about any of the topics above.
