Creekside Digital’s new website is LIVE!

Yesterday, we “flipped the switch” on our new website. The old homegrown site had served us well throughout the first part of our company’s existence, but we have aggressively grown over the past year and required something which better described our new capabilities to current and potential customers. Kudos to Cloud Nine Labs for working with us to build exactly what we wanted.

We’ve had lots of different kinds of projects going in and out of the shop lately, the largest of which is a 137 roll newspaper conversion including NDNP-specification scanning. This means uncompressed 8-bit TIFF Master files between 300-400dpi (depending on the reduction ratio of the film), which gives us really huge images — 30 to 60 MB each. Then of course, there are several other derivatives, but none are nearly as large as the TIFFs. We conservatively estimate that the final project will consume approximately 5.5 TB of disk space.

Creekside Digital is attending ALA 2010 in DC!

Also, Creekside Digital will be attending the American Library Association 2010 Annual Conference this weekend in nearby Washington DC. We look forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones there!

Creekside Digital

Mass digitization is ongoing with the next phase of our Smithsonian Gardens project. We are now imaging the Archives of American Gardens (AAG) which preserves and provides access to visual resources and records that document the history of gardens in America.

Primarily a photographic archive, AAG includes documentation on over 10,000 historic and contemporary gardens. Photographic formats range from antique stereographs to recent digital images. AAG’s collections document the work of landscape architects, garden designers, and garden photographers as well as a handful of seed companies.

Examples of trade literature generated by these companies in the Archives include seed catalogs with ornately illustrated covers as seen here. Soon all these digital images will be viewable in high resolution online at Smithsonian's collections.si.edu/search/
