Bringing Down the Image 4 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Until 1995 online bulletin boards were where to look for digital images. Now images are there for viewing and capturing from image-collecting artists, enthusiasts, government, libraries, museums, news magazines and organizations, stock photography agencies, and universities; and image-providing commercialized consumer services [especially for freely distributed, public domain, royalty-free], commercialized information professional database systems, graphics professional systems, and Internet FTP, Gopher, Usenet and web. It is important to capture any information available with the images about contacting rights holders, getting technical information or just retracing steps. Author Paula Berinstein also cautions that digitizing divides an image into units and gives each unit only one color and shape; that scanners are usually set for an average, but one-at-a-time scanning reproduces differently from the original too; and that software viewers should be capable of rotating images, printing sideways, and zooming out. Her book reads well with Adele Droblas Greenberg's DIGITAL IMAGES and Lois Swan Jones' ART INFORMATION AND THE INTERNET. With her concerns over copyright and ownership, it also leads into Mary Hutchings Reed's THE COPYRIGHT PRIMER FOR LIBRARIANS AND EDUCATORS and Charles C. Sharpe's PATENT, TRADEMARK AND COPYRIGHT SEARCHING ON THE INTERNET.
