Photoshop Volunteer Needed

calandraThe John D. Calandra Italian American Institute of Queens College, CUNY, needs a qualified student for two to four hours of work scanning historic photographs (including some oversize images) and using PhotoShop to ready images for publication in an upcoming Institute exhibition catalog of Italian-American-history-related photography.

The student will be responsible for communicating with the project managers and the catalog designer as to specifications of the images and may be asked to participate in a phone meeting with the designer and the curators of the project.

This task requires care, expertise, and professionalism; it would be an ideal item to add as work
experience on a student résumé.
