Malmin - Antonsen Photo Archive


This is an archival collection of scanned family photos. The photos come from many sources and I am always looking to add more. Please contact me at the link at the bottom of the page if you have related photos to share! I will handle all scanning and will cover any shipping costs.

The photos are scanned at high quality in TIFF format using an Epson Perfection 4490 flatbed scanner. They are post-processed using the Gimp open source image editing software. Most images are simply cropped to their content and White Balanced. Some of the more interesting images have had more extensive restoration efforts applied. Some photos with text on the reverse have this text scanned and appended to them. The TIFF files are then saved as high-quality JPG files for posting on this site. The original TIFF files are archived separately, due to their size. I'll gladly provide them to anyone interested upon request.

Wherever possible metadata about the images is added as 'Tags'. These tags are a function of the hosting software, so they will be lost if an image is saved to another location. Keep this in mind if you download an image. You may want to retain the metadata. If you have any additional metadata to add to an image (who is in it, when it was taken, etc), please feel free to add it! You should be able to edit the tags yourself. If this doesn't work, feel free to email the data to me at the address below!
