If you are a regular Bitstreams reader, you know we just love talking about Multispectral Imaging. Seriously, we can go on and on about it, and we are not the only ones. This week however we are keeping it short and sweet and sharing a couple before and after images from one of our most recent imaging sessions.
Below are two stacked images of Ashkar MS 16 (from the Rubenstein Library). The top half of each image is the manuscript under natural light, and the bottom are the results of Multispectral imaging and processing. We tend to post black and white MSI images most often as they are generally the most legible, however our MSI software can produce a lot of wild color variations! The orange one below seemed the most appropriate for a hot NC July afternoon like today. More processing details are included in the image captions below – enjoy!
