A project is underway at the church in Fairford, England, to create a high resolution digital image archive of the historic stained glass windows. A combination of film photography and digital photography has been used to capture images of the windows in small sections. Image processing techniques will be used to mosaic these sections into large seamless digital images. A specially-constructed stained glass test panel enables colorimetric calibration. Experiments have demonstrated the viability of digital restoration of detail in the images.
