Digital writing and publishing often include images, sometimes to illustrate a point, but often as the central topic of the text. Researchers in the humanities and art history might amass hundreds, if not thousands of digital images, downloaded from institutional and public resources (ArtStor, Google, DPLA, library visual resource centers) or their own scans of research & archival materials and photos taken on site visits.
I would like to propose a session to share ideas about how personal digital collections are created and managed, including and not limited to:
- online sources and search
- scanning and image manipulation
- image management software & metadata
- uploading and sharing on social networks, blogs, websites
- Creative Commons and copyright issues
