Abstract

The Metamorfoze Preservation Imaging Guidelines define a practical protocol to the level of equipment (photographic and computer) and digital image capturing procedures performing the implementation of these guidelines, through a highly accurate color management, consisting in a calibration of the equipment in order to achieve true color, tone and natural density, ensuring that the object that we’ll see already digitized will be perfectly equal to the object seen in loco with the same lighting conditions where it was photographed. The Metamorfoze Preservation Imaging Guidelines define the Rijksmuseum's quality standards and determine an extremely high quality standard of the digital images which were collected, but, most of all, totally faithful to the original objects.
