LAG August 2nd Program...Images for Artists
Tuesday, Aug. 2nd, 7-9 p.m., 7800 Holdrege St., Lincoln, Nebraska
LAG August program will be presented by a representative of Images II, local business. Images II will bring a number of examples of jobs done for artists. They will discuss what the artist can expect scanning, color accuracy, adjustments, output media, longevity of reproductions, other uses of images of their artworks, etc. We have been serving Lincoln artists for over 40 years so we have the experience and the technical knowledge to help.
About Images II:
A Revolution in Imaging Technology
A partnership between the Xerox Corporation and Images II has resulted in a new method of producing images. Years ago, Xerox invented the process of copying an image onto paper. In the mid-1980s, they invented a color copier and later a way to print from a computer. The advancements of the 80s created colorful images, but the quality was better suited for graphs and charts rather than photographs.
Images II entered into the photographic business in 1974, distributing quality photographic lab equipment and image consultation. Our experienced staff of photo and electronic engineers have developed new and better ways to process images for the consumer. In the early 1980s, we developed the Creation Station, a sophisticated system for making graphic presentations. These systems have been sold worldwide and have been selected by the US military as the standard for productivity and creativity.
Images from any source, such as film, transparencies or computer-generated files, can be produced at photographic resolution with less cost and without any of the environmentally harmful photochemical processes. Our system has no chemistry, no water, no plumbing, no fumes and the finished prints are coated to protect against the wear and tear of everyday life. Negative film. Transparencies. Color. Black and white. This system can make prints directly from the millions of digital cameras in use. Package prints for team leagues and church directories, business cards personalized with individual pictures for less than a dollar a sheet, greeting cards with the family name and the family picture on the front and brochures advertising the next upcoming company picnic with color photos of last year's gala event.
Redge Johnson, general manager is happy to educate us about the services they provide that interest artists in our community.
