Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines
Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines (UPDIG) is a group of industry professionals who are working towards creating worldwide standards for the commercial use of digital images. The introduction of the document states: "These 12 guidelines -- along with the accompanying Best Practices documents -- aim to clarify issues affecting accurate reproduction and management of digital image files. Although they largely reflect a photographer's perspective, anyone working with digital images should find them useful." Link»
