Extracting ancient images. We will say that again.
Today’s VM 365 image follows on from a theme set by yesterday’s image, which was scanned from an old colour slide dating from the early 1980’s. The image was cleaned up for a new digital generation more experienced with looking at images sent instantly to their phones than delivered using a hot light bulb to the wall of a village hall. Today’s picture is of one slide archive from the 1970’s and early 80’s, full of many hundreds of images that are locked in celluloid slides.
Even though many of these slides were scanned in the early 2000’s, technology moves on and our ability to enhance and manipulate the images progresses every year allowing them to be available and potentially more accessible over time.
Many of the images we will present in the future for VM 365 will come from this valuable resource.
