Volunteer Details for Document Cleaner
Title Document Cleaner
Description Clean and enhance digital documents.
Skills Required Hand-mouse-eye coordination, photo editing, patience, perseverance.
Tools Needed A computer (not too old or slow) , Adobe Photoshop (or equivalent), Internet connection.
Location Online
Details Using Adobe Photoshop or a similar high-end photo-editing program, you will edit pages of documents that have already been scanned by a volunteer Document Scanner. You will use editing techniques in Photoshop such as: Selection, Rotate, Erase, Levels, Curves, Draw, Brush, Resample, Resize, and Skew. Most documents will be monochrome in nature: Drawings, letters, manuals, scanned 337s, etc. Pages with only text can be saved in lower resolution than pages with photos or drawings. For multipage documents, pages will be cleaned one page at a time, with each page being its own file. Files will be saved in TIF format. When all pages are completed, they will be assembled into a single PDF file in the proper page order. (This last step can be done my museum staff if you don’t have Adobe Acrobate Professional, or equivalent.)
