Preserving Old Photographs for Future Generations

Challenge

The client has hundreds of thousands of scans of old photos with writing on the reverse side. They want to clean up the images, categorize them, and process the information written on the back of each in order to develop an efficient, easy in-house categorization system.

Solution

First, the 50-person team digitally cleaned the image by recognizing & adjusting the orientation and correcting small blemishes. Then iMerit teams took the multi-lingual, hand-written information on the reverse and input the text into a database for the customer.

Results

The team processed 18,000 images each month for 14 months with an accuracy rate of 99 percent.
