The original lithographs made by David Roberts (1796-1864) did not produce uniformly sharp prints with high definition. Furthermore, the original prints are now over 150 years old, often showing considerable signs of age. These factors make the images in this screen saver somewhat "soft" and many of the colors muted. Although is it somewhat tempting to digitally enhance these images, digital manipulation has been kept to a minimum (slight color enhancement and image sharpening was used on some images) in order to preserve the character of the original lithographs. Similarly, the format of the original prints is not in correct proportion for computer monitors (i.e., not 1:1.33); this poses the problem of how to best present the images while producing a "pleasant" appearing screen image. Again, in order to change the original images as little as possible, minimal cropping was used and blank space was allowed to fill the area around the 'disproportioned' images. Finally, the images were recorded using a larger than normal digital format. Even with cropping out the mattes and occasionally small parts of the actual image, most of the final images are around 800 pixels wide. This makes the screen saver file considerably larger than normal, but it creates minimal distortion when viewed at 600 x 800 pixels and larger screen sizes.

Because this is simply a screen saver and not intended to be a scholarly work (well-written books on David Roberts' work exist), only the original print titles are included in this documentation -- this material is reproduced without editing or commentary. Information about folio size, engraver, the print-making process, and etc. can be obtained by consulting one of the scholarly works on David Roberts. The purpose of this screen saver is simply to provide a few "digital samples" of David Roberts' extensive work on Egypt for the collectors, traders, and admirers of his prints.
