The Image Network Helps Companies Fill Digital Skills Gap

1 September 2003

Although working with digital images offers enormous advantages, many companies are sorely lacking in the skills needed to make the enterprise profitable. The Image Network has noticed an increasing demand for in-house training amongst publishers and picture libraries, as they struggle to understand the new language of digital images.The Image Network (TIN) was set up to help businesses get to grips with the new technology, and runs events and training courses for people across the industry - photographers, picture libraries, publishers, design and pre-press professionals. Courses scheduled for this autumn are designed to bring busy professionals up to speed with the digital workflows in ways which relate to the work they do.

Programme Manager, Sarah Saunders, says:

"We created The Image Network because we perceived the need for training and discussion for both producers and users of digital images. Businesses are now realising that investing in hardware and software is not enough - people working with images need to upgrade their skills to make it worthwhile. Some companies are investing large amounts of money in scanning. In the course of our consultancy we are seeing a lot of scans which are not up to standard. It's important that companies know how to assess the scans they receive - and better now than when its too late."

One-day courses on offer by TIN this autumn are: 'Need to Know Digital Imaging,' September 19; 'The Business of Managing Colour,' September 23; 'Quality 'Control Saves you Money,' October 9; 'How PDF can help your business,' October 23.
