We’d like to encourage our friends and family to join us in making the best use of our time while we’re practicing social distancing by investing in ourselves. Our way of facilitating that is to launch “Project Lemonade” – an ongoing series of informative and (hopefully) entertaining webinars that you’ll be able to join remotely. There will be a variety of topics, from hardware tips & software tutorials, to project workflows and digitization case studies, making this a perfect way to spend an idle hour or two, while simultaneously adding to your knowledge and understanding of photography.
Cultural Heritage Digitization often includes repetitive post processing tasks where precision and accuracy matter. In some cases there are native tools for those tasks, such as AutoCrop in Capture One CH. But what do you do when no such tool exists? Get Coding! In this presentation we’ll demonstrate three use-cases where a bit of custom programming can improve your workflow: OCR’d PDFs, hashtag generation, and quality-control for cropping.
We’ll also discuss both the pros and cons of this approach including hard costs (pro!), productivity improvement potential (pro), and soft costs (con!). Due to time limitations, this session will be an overview rather than a step-by-step tutorial, but depending on feedback on this presentation we are considering offering a two-day DT Digitization class on this topic.
Featured Speaker: Jeremy Moore | University of Tennessee Libraries

Wether you’ve shot Phase One before or are just curious about why our clients choose medium format, we invite photographers of all experience levels and camera platforms/formats to expand their photography knowledge with this interesting technical overview.
