Beaford Workflow - Second Stage

The second stage of digitisation was carried out 'in house' by Beaford.

We work from the raw files which they provide, adjust and prepare them for print.

These are opened in Rawtherapee using a custom profile created especially for this project then exported to the Gnu Image Manipulation Program as 32 bit Argb files.

Adjustments carried out in the Gnu Image Manipulation Program
working in 32bit colour depth:
Spot
Crop and resize to 19" x 12.66" @300 dpi

Save in prepared folder as 16bit .tif files.
Resize images to 12" x 8"
Resize canvas to 15" x 10" and apply Beaford copyright text
