The latest version of the Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources Quality Assurance Image Defects page is now “live” and made freely available to the cultural heritage and library communities.
This is a long-awaited tool that serves a range of production, development, and training needs. It includes sample images of common (and uncommon) defects, causes/sources, and potential remedies.
This page compliments the outstanding and hugely popular AV Artifact site that was produced by our own Stanford Media Preservation Lab team.
Future work on the Image Defects page will include contributions from Imaging Scientist Don Williams, and content from the Library of Congress and Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative.
