The design of the AIC PhotoDocumentation Targets (AIC PhD Targets) specifically complies with recommended practices for photographic documentation described in the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) Commentaries to the Guideline for Practice and with suggested procedures in The AIC Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation.
The AIC PhD Targets provide an easy and efficient way to include photographic reference standards as well as image and artifact identification information. The design of the AIC PhD Targets has been carefully planned to minimize the space occupied by this important reference material in the image frame. Lightweight and of robust construction, each target has the following elements: six-step grey scale, color patches (CMYRGB), a lighting indicator associated with a photogrammetric indicator, a size scale, and an area for date and object identification information. Targets are provided with instructional information and with online resources, which include a printing template for slip-in labels for the medium and small targets.
Instructions for using the AIC PhD Targets is available on the AIC website here.
The AIC PhD Targets are available in 3 sizes:
Each color/grey patch measures 1 cm x 3 cm. Overall dimensions 4 cm x 50 cm
Each color/grey patch measures 1 cm x 1 cm. Overall dimensions 2 cm x 16 cm
Each color/grey patch measures 0.5 cm x 0.5 cm. Overall dimensions 1 cm x 8 cm
