These Guidelines are intended to be adhered to as closely as possible re technical specifications. However, consideration and
adaptation of these specifications may be made on the part of contributors to the project, when assessing the best means and
applicability of the guidelines to their local needs and situation; and with reference to the types of art works and materials under
consideration for inclusion. (Definitions of artworks mentioned herein are entirely indicative, not prescriptive and it is up to contributors to
assess what ‘type’ an individual artwork is best categorised under.)

RECOMMENDED SPECIFICATION FOR THE CREATION OF DIGITAL STILL IMAGES

•   Create a ‘Master Image File’, to be as close a representation of the original Artwork (if necessary via a ‘photographic’ surrogate), as
    possible.
•   Always capture at as high a quality as possible for your ‘Master Image File’, (consult with technical staff, advisory services and any
    organisations you are negotiating with re the maximum quality achievable within time-scales & funds available – supply internal or external
    agencies with the minimum and recommended specifications below as guidance)
•   Limit post-capture image-manipulation as much as possible
•   Name the ‘Master image File’ according to the filenames assigned to your project
•   Retain back-up copies of the ‘Master Image File’ on at least 2 different media, e.g. server / PC hard-drive and CDROM

WEB IMAGE SPECIFICATION (for information only since these will be produced by VADS)

Below is the draft output specification for presentation of still images for the Fine Art Project on the web, to provide a good quality digital
representation of the original work of art, suitable for delivery over the Internet, to a standard computer screen, minimum screen size, 800 x 600
pixels.
This may assist you or the capture agencies in determining appropriate capture methods.
