 F A Q + Fun Stuff

DRAFT
What are scans and digital Imaging? 
The term is often assumed to imply or include the "Digital Capture" or digital photography of a subject, processing, compression, storage, printing, display or publication of such images. A key advantage of a digital image, versus an analog image such as a film photograph, is the ability to print copies (especially very fine museum quality copies of original art) and copies of copies, or variations in size, coloration, texture, special effects, digitally indefinitely without any loss of image quality.
