The Jack Kirby Museum's Kirby Digital Archive contains over 12,000 scans of original comicbook art and photocopies of legendary creator Jack Kirby. We are taking these 12,000 high res (600dpi/1200dpi) and porting them over to a new, soon to be launched, Collections website.
This is a massive amount of work to silhouette, mask and stitch the digital, large RAW files into a final file that will be down-sampled and uploaded by the museum into the site.
What we need is volunteers to take the RAW files, combine and silhouette them in Photoshop and provide final layered TIFs for our final processing into the site.
Volunteer should have excellent computer skills an Photoshop experience. Files will end up being close to 1GB each so a fast computer with a good amount of RAM is suggested. We will manage file transfers through Dropbox and can communicate via Slack but not required.
Note that volunteers will exchange files via Dropbox or FTP with the Museum. All files and resulting processed Photoshop files will be transferred to the museum and not kept by volunteers.
