It's widely known that Google would like to see the entire world digitized and uploaded to the web, and its newest initiative brings us one step closer to that reality. Today Google launched its Open Gallery service that enables museums and art galleries to easily upload photos and build online exhibits for the world to see.
The new Open Gallery Initiative is part of Google's Cultural Institute, and allows museums and galleries to enhance their existing website, or create a new one for free. Open Gallery will help parties develop extremely high-resolutions images of their exhibits so that visitors can zoom in on paintings and see each individual brush stroke the artist left behind. Entry into the program is on a Google-selected basis at the moment, and interested parties can visit the source link below to sign up to be considered.
