Image library classification

Classification of works in a library serves two purposes. The first is to make it easier for your audience to search for specific works by theme or subject, the second is to make it easier for the artist to locate the masters from within an archive of works.…

Once the works are digitised into media files, (in the case of digital art and photography that happens straight away.) the initial or original digital file is considered as the digital negative in photography. For digital graphics and other digitised visual art forms, this first digitised image becomes the master file.

With digital photography, the original file—out of the camera, is the digital negative. It should be copied to produce a master copy and the original digital negative filed away in an archive.

So for every job there is

What is the difference between an image and a picture?

Nothing really, it’s just semantics! Although Gavin tends to infer that a picture is rendered from an image, because an image can exist in your imagination, or your mind, or in a computer file for that matter! Gavin tends to think of pictures as the complete package of final rendering consisting of an image, or images, the material they are rendered on and with and any presentation material such as mounts and frames. With electronic technologies the rendering of images into pictures are often very temporary. The material an electronic picture is rendered on is quite permanent (your computer or TV screen), but the electronic process of rendering an image file to a picture on screen is only as permanent as the power supply.

Building a better Redbubble service

Redbubble is already a great creation with little direct competition of the same format and scope. For an international operation arising from Australia, that’s pretty good. But competition is starting to emerge, so Redbubble needs to continuously evolve with improvements and innovation. The feedback and suggestions section is an excellent means to inspiration that will prove very popular with the masses, because the inspiration comes from their dreams! I think all members should visit this section of Redbubble more frequently. Look for the FEEDBACK link at the bottom of the “MyBubble” page. I have recently entered a suggestion that I hope you will take a look at. If you can see value in it, let Redbubble know what you think of it with your vote. Search “Multiple Addresses on cards”.
