Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Yizkor Books In Print Project volunteers with graphic skills #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


The "Yizkor Books In Print Project" is looking for about 5
volunteers to help process images for new books to be published.
The volunteers should have Photoshop or similar software to be
able to open PDF files with images, copy and crop the images of
photographs, illustrations, maps and create JPEG files of the
individual images, so that they can be inserted into the text files
by our layout volunteers. If you can devote a minimum of an hour
or two a week to help with this project, please contact Joel Alpert,
Coordinator of the Yizkor Books in Print Project whose address
can be found at

Background: We are fortunate to have just reached an agreement
with the National Yiddish Book Center in Holyoke, MA and the
New York Public Library, for use of their PDF files of high
resolution scanned images of photos and maps and illustrations
of their huge collection of Yizkor Books. This will insure high
quality reproduction of the images >from the original Yizkor Books.

All the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager
