We're wondering if you may be able to give us a suggestion or two -- and =
promise to post all suggestions to the group as well for your interest! =
--  We're in the process of upgrading our website and are altering our =
working practice to involve a gallery-type situation where we are =
displaying our own work and in time hope to be able to offer this =
facility to other local artists without websites as a means of getting =
exposure.

Where we are struggling is with framed work.  One of the lessons we've =
already learnt is not to frame them before scanning or photographing =
them, because the glass quite seriously affects visual legibility and =
can make lines blur and smudge.  But assuming that the works are already =
behind glass, what is the best way of handling scanned/photographed =
images without losing too much detail?

So far, what we're doing is scanning the photographed image as it is (in =
its frame) and placing this at a low resolution on the site.  When the =
visitor of the site clicks on the image, it will appear sans the frame =
and at a higher resolution.  We're thinking of reprinting the =
editionable images so that they can be scanned directly without the =
intermediary of the photographer at all.  Also, what makes more sense, =
digital or traditional photography?

Thanks,

Robyn & Peta
