Image Optimization and Enhancement for Faster, Clearer, More Accessible Content
Why Image Optimization and Enhancement MatterIn educational publishing, images provide far more than decoration: they actually provide key information. They may also be the basis for student assessments in the lower grades or in visually rich topics such as art history, math, biology, chemistry, and Earth science. Image optimization and enhancement, while they are both important, serve different functions. Image optimization is the process by which high quality images are provided in the right format, resolution, and dimensions while minimizing the size of the image file. This can be accomplished by resizing, compressing, or caching images. The benefit of image optimization is, of course, fast, accurate delivery of top-quality images with the lowest possible requirement for storage space or memory. Image enhancement is a very different process: it involves the creation of near-perfect images through:
- Improving contrast, brightness, sharpening, and color balancing
- De-skewing (straightening or repositioning) images
- Cleaning images by removing dust and stains
- Removal of black borders, crop marks, holes, blank pages, or other artifacts
Additional Image-Related Services to Improve readability, accessibility and User ExperienceImage optimization and enhancement improve image quality and speed of download. Tagging and alternate text make it easier to find and engage with images—even for people with low vision or other disabilities. Magic EdTech offers:
- Image enhancement
- Auto image tagging
- Alt text creation and insertion on images
- Detection of image size, orientation, and recto/verso pages
Math Image to MathML by SmartTextTop quality images are especially important in education; for example, in math, printed equations and formulas can be converted into MathML along with alt text. MathML is a markup language which facilitates use and interaction with math and science content. MathML makes it possible to present mathematical notation in a high-quality visual display, making it easier to understand, use, and encode.
Magic EdTech has developed an AI-based automated solution to recognize handwritten math equations and convert them into MathML with its Alternate text.
