Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Cyberspace is brimming with images of every type: news photos, medical illustrations, classic paintings, clip art, etc. They're available for everything from education to research to business use--if you can find them. Paula Bernstein does a wonderful job of describing how to track down the image you need, avoid dead ends and uncover the unsuspected goldmines. The resources in the appendices alone make this reference well worthwhile. And the sensible and comprehensible discussions of copyrights and image- viewing software are major pluses. If image research or use of online graphics is part of your life, this book is a must-have.

Review

Cyberspace holds millions of digital images, many in the public domain: the question has been where to locate them. Any with Internet access and artistic sensibilities will relish this excellent guide which teaches not only the basics of searching online for images, but how to locate databases created with image searchers in mind. An excellent, important guide to resources, services and approaches in finding them. -- Midwest Book Review

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on June 4, 2001
Format: Paperback
Until 1995 online bulletin boards were where to look for digital images. Now images are there for viewing and capturing from image-collecting artists, enthusiasts, government, libraries, museums, news magazines and organizations, stock photography agencies, and universities; and image-providing commercialized consumer services [especially for freely distributed, public domain, royalty-free], commercialized information professional database systems, graphics professional systems, and Internet FTP, Gopher, Usenet and web. It is important to capture any information available with the images about contacting rights holders, getting technical information or just retracing steps. Author Paula Berinstein also cautions that digitizing divides an image into units and gives each unit only one color and shape; that scanners are usually set for an average, but one-at-a-time scanning reproduces differently from the original too; and that software viewers should be capable of rotating images, printing sideways, and zooming out. Her book reads well with Adele Droblas Greenberg's DIGITAL IMAGES and Lois Swan Jones' ART INFORMATION AND THE INTERNET. With her concerns over copyright and ownership, it also leads into Mary Hutchings Reed's THE COPYRIGHT PRIMER FOR LIBRARIANS AND EDUCATORS and Charles C. Sharpe's PATENT, TRADEMARK AND COPYRIGHT SEARCHING ON THE INTERNET.
