Stop time and bring your cultural heritage into an interactive and dynamic future by contacting Picturae! We digitize carefully, yet at a high speed - all the while maintaining the strictest international standards of image quality.

High quality, at high speed....FADGI and Metamorfoze

Picturae’s renowned high-quality digitization practices are based in the Metamorfoze guidelines. These guidelines are intended for the rapid, mass digitization of two-dimensional materials, primarily from the cultural heritage sector. We are happy to help you along in the process from first inquiry to final delivery.
