2D Object Photography
TownsWeb Archiving’s 2D object photography service uses experienced technicians who are experts in capturing your valuable objects either by taking a series of 2D photographs to create flat 2D images, or through 3D geometric imagery (see 360 object photography), using a turntable to take images at every 10 (or more) degrees.
TownsWeb Archiving can provide TIFF and JPEG files for 2D photography and a series of GIF, MP4 or other industry standard format for your digitised objects.
Capturing your items using 360 photography is a prudent step, bringing your objects to life in a totally new and exciting dimension, and protecting every intricate detail from the risk of loss or damage, making your items quickly and more flexibly accessible.
All content is captured by our highly trained technicians before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.Find out how much your project could cost
Hear what our clients have to say about our digitisation services
I can safely say that with TownsWeb I happily recommended them to other companies for similar scanning and digitisation [projects] because I know they can be trusted. They can be relied upon to get the job done… they get it right, first time, every time.
Thanks to the digitisation carried out by TownsWeb, we have been able to extend the reach of our collections, for example by using the high quality images on our website. This makes the material available for those that cannot physically get to our museum due to its rural location, but also globally for research and educational purposes.
