New Library of Congress Guidelines for Digital Photography Archiving

December, 2009 · Written by: John Tierney Print This Page This entry is part 16 of 30 in the Issue 04

Digital photography archiving guidelines from the US Library of Congress. The guidelines include advice such as

• Use TIFF or PSD as working file formats.

• Use JPEG or TIFF as delivery file formats.

• Use TIFF or PSD as file formats to archive rendered master files.

• Use DNG to archive raw file data.

Their guidance on backup is also good. There is a two page quick guide but the whole site is worth a read.
