Digitization is one of the investments made by cultural heritage institutions to preserve content created in analog formats in the light of current technological solutions. Digitization can also be seen as a process of making cultural heritage objects and their information accessible to changing user needs and expectations. Cultural heritage institutions create new uses for collections by digitization attempts. As a result, proper digitization of photographs allows for the dissemination of culture across generations. In addition, digital preservation approaches are important to provide permanent access to digital photographs. This presentation highlights the importance of digitization and digital preservation of photographs to provide acceptable resources to user communities. The presentation also states that the creation of machine-readable formats and the display of digital photographs in digital libraries supported by machine interaction are essential for effective interaction design through the provision of instances.
