For artwork that is 8.5x11 or smaller, we utilize a high resolution flatbed scanner to perform the scans. These scans can digitally capture the artwork up to 1200 dpi. For larger artwork, we utilize a high-resolution camera. The artwork is illuminated with a large amount of uniform, high color rendition lighting. The camera is set properly to capture the artwork as a raw, high-resolution file. The camera is also set to a low iso to minimize noise in the image. Just prior to taking the image, the artwork is adjusted in position so as to capture the artwork with the best lighting possible. For paintings with depth of paint, for example, we pay attention to the shadows of the paint and reflectivity of paint and adjust the painting so as to achieve the most desirable image.
