About Digital Images

By Jeannette Holland Austin

microfilm Did you know that it is far easier to read images of all documents on your computer than from microfilm? This is because the microfilm reader is using its limited technological capacity. Many of these old readers have seen their day! However, when a record is digitized for the computer, all of the latest imaging software is operative. For example, Adobe has improved over the years. The reader may now zoom in or out by using the plus or minor signs at the bottom of the screen. So much better than the old days of using a magnifying glass. Even faded and aged images are better interpreted on the computer. The Georgia State Archives where you can read old county documents yet remains open to the public only two days per week. A very stressed situation, I must say. But good news! Georgia Pioneers has digitized hundreds of thousands of the old wills and they are available on the website.
