International Conference

Digitization, Digital Restoration and Presentation of old Photographs

/Digital Restoration Lab/

About the international conference

Date: 11.06.2024

Location: Sofia, Bulgaria

Speaking language: English

Digital Restoration lab is a project aimed at systematizing, integrating, and disseminating modern practices for restoration, digitization, digital restoration, and exposure of antique photographs. The most valuable priority of the project is the inclusion of photographic collections in the European digital information fund. Almost all institutions (photo studios, libraries, archives, photo archives, museums, galleries, scientific institutions) need to facilitate access to their collections while simultaneously protecting the originals stored in a controlled access regime, which would reduce the risk of damage, fragility, pollution, fading of images, etc. Many institutions do not have experts specialized in the preservation of old photographs.

Main themes

1. History and types of photography, and the need for digitization
2. Storage, maintenance, conservation of analogue photographs (originals)
3. Process of digitization, types of hardware and software for digitization and copyright
4. Maintaining digital data, metadata and catalogues
5. Digital restoration of photographs
6. Displaying digitized collections to the public in the most attractive way
