  19. Scanning Good for papers, faint print, flat objects. SLOW…

  21. Scanning Set-up important Preview File names One scan -> multiple files Scanner settings: see guidelines

  22. Photography Can be used for all kinds of objects Fast, flexible

  23. Light very important! Copy-stand with lights Aim to minimize post-processing Camera on tripod. Separate lights

  24. Be flexible

  25. Take first picture with ticket

  26. Take several pictures of objects

  27. Feel free to include ‘extra’ pictures (when time) Capture front and back

  28. postprocessing

  29. Crop (Improve) Re-size and compress Label

  30. Crop

  31. Enhance Rotate Straighten Light Contrast Colour / White balance … Very dark with shadows Taken w camera at angle -> image distorted

  32. If the objects are in the same place (same light) , you may be able to ‘bulk’ edit

  33. Re-format for Web • Re-size: longest side 1600 pixels • Compress so file size < 2 MB • (300 dpi, if not too large) Keep the original high-quality file for archiving/other uses

  34. Label Put all images for one ticket into one folder 12 19 PDF If more than 4 images / story -> create a pdf with all images and add
