The scans were produced at 600 pixels per inch resolution, at original size and were created as 8-bit and 16-bit greyscale images or 24-bit RGB. The image files were created and saved in the Tagged Image File Format (tiff). Any image editing was done using Adobe PhotoShop Elements, 7.0, CS1 or CS2, and included cropping, auto levels and dust spotting using the healing brush. Some information may be embedded in the digital images' IPTC Description field, which can be viewed using the File Info feature of Adobe PhotoShop.
