- Hi, I'm Taz Tally and welcome to Scanning Techniques for Photography, Art, and Design. In this course, we'll look at scanning a wide variety of images. Including simple and complex line art, continuous tone grayscale and color images, complex images, and documents on a range of scanning devices. I'll start by showing you the fundamentals of scanning. Including the types of scanners and image challenges, linear resolution and bit depth, as well as the characteristics and use of pixel and vector based images.
We'll address how to properly evaluate your images prior to scanning. And discuss some of the particular challenges of tone and color reproduction. You'll also see how to select and use scanning tools. Including histograms, color sampler points and info panels, levels, curves, and sharpening.
