How to Digitize Art
This is the process I use to digitize my art. I keep it as basic as possible, so there are DEFINITELY more professional ways to go about doing this. But hey, it works for me.
Epson Perfection V600 Scanner: http://amzn.to/2uLeESn
Scan all art in at 800 DPI
Save all art as a TIFF
Create a document for digitized piece in Photoshop
Settings I use in Photoshop match my printer: 300 DPI + Adobe RGB 1998 color profile
Place scanned images in document
Get rid of "grey" background by using: Image > Adjustments > Levels
Click on white eye-dropper and click in any grey color to turn to white
Manually remove dust and erase backgrounds if levels is blowing out the piece too much
I do minimal color correction! If anything I'll increase vibrancy and adjust color balance
It is as simple as that. I print my art with gicleetoday.com, which is a topic for another day. I hope you found this useful, feel free to leave questions below!
