The Yakima Memory Project: Hardware & Software
The Yakima Memory Project used CONTENTdm as the database. CONTENTdm used 300dpi scanned images to create the 72dpi images and thumbnails for the website. This software also stored all of the metadata for each of the images and provides the webserver capabilities.
Scanning was achieved using two pieces of software; Adobe Photoshop and Microtek Scanwizard Pro. Upon purchasing a new scanner, we have changed to using Adobe Photoshop and Magicscan32 V4.5.
An additional database of photographs was created for internal use only using Filemaker Pro.
To create and organize the web pages, a combination of Macromedia Dreamweaver Ultra Dev, Macromedia Fireworks, and Adobe Illustrator were employed.
